Melanie Hanna, Associate AIA, Allied ASID

When it came time to choose a career path, I knew that it would be in the wonderful world of design & architecture! I grew up playing under my Dad’s drafting table and was always in awe of seeing the lines on paper come to life. Everything about architecture and design intrigues me – especially the psychological effects that a design can have on the people who occupy a space. My interior design journey began at a hospitality design firm in Dallas, TX and unexpectedly moved to an architectural metal manufacturer where I gained invaluable experience on the opposite side of the spectrum. I am excited to be a Designer on the PDS team and to share this phenomenal journey with such a talented group of individuals! My motto: “Creativity is intelligence having fun.” -Albert Einstein.
