Digital Design Managing Principal | Minneapolis, MN, USA

Rachel works to foster the adoption of and transition to BIM throughout HDR. With a BArch from North Dakota State University and a minor in coaching, she has a great passion for technology as well as a respect for the profession. This combination makes mentoring her colleagues in the ways of BIM a perfect fit! She is a current co-chair of the AIA Minnesota Chapter’s Emerging Professionals Committee and works frequently with the BIM Breakfast Club as well as the Minnesota Revit User Group. In her time away from work, she enjoys photography, baking, wakeboarding, hiking, and figuring out how things work. She believes: “Architecture is a constant challenge, a challenge to figure things out; to make things better; to improve; and most importantly to inspire. The challenge itself is what makes architecture so rewarding, because with each challenge comes an opportunity for growth.”
