Tatiana was born and raised in Montreal, Canada to hard-working Chilean immigrants. That is how she became fluent in Spanish, French & English and developed an appreciation for different cultures. As a young child, she had a passion for drawing, coloring, and model building. It was during high school, when she took a technical drawing class, that her interest in architecture was piqued. Tatiana moved to Phoenix in 1994 to attend Arizona State University, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Design. She has been practicing architecture in the valley ever since and feels fortunate to have been able to work in a variety of sectors including retail, commercial office, education, multi-family, and mixed-use. When not working, Tatiana enjoys spending time with her family and friends doing such things as cooking, traveling, camping, and playing games. She especially enjoys teaching her two daughters how to push their creative minds and problem-solve.
