On International Women's Day, we are delighted to announce the promotion of Senior Project Manager, Charity Dunphy, to Associate.
“Charity is a talented architect with strong management and leadership abilities. She is an outstanding teacher and her role as Associate gives her the proper platform to mentor staff and enhance our professional culture. We are excited to have her as part of the leadership on the firm.” said Partner Eric Naslund.
To continue to provide the award-winning design and exemplary service that the firm is known for, partners Eric Naslund, FAIA, John Sheehan, AIA, Mathilda Bialk, AIA and Maxine Ward, AIA asked Ms. Dunphy to join them in shaping the company as it moves forward. In her new role, Charity will continue to embrace responsibilities beyond her projects, including providing technical leadership and mentorship for the firm’s staff.
Ms. Dunphy, a licensed architect, has managed several high-profile educational and multifamily projects in her time with Studio E Architects, including the complete transformation of the historic gymnasium and natatorium building at the former Naval Training Center into an elementary school for High Tech Learning.
“We have repeat clients who specifically ask to have Charity assigned to their new projects when they come in for our initial meeting. It’s no surprise really – she is a superlative Project Manager. Clients who have worked with her consistently appreciate her strong organizational and technical skills.” said Partner John Sheehan.
Ms. Dunphy, an east coast native, graduated with a Bachelor of Architecture from Virginia Tech in 2006. While in school, she studied abroad in Europe and spent some time participating in internships in Southern California which prompted her to move to San Diego upon graduation. She became a licensed architect in 2012 and joined the Studio E Architects team in 2013. She is currently working on a permanent supportive housing development in the Grantville neighborhood.
The firm looks forward to the further integration of this talented individual into her leadership role as it plots out its next quarter century of making places that matter.
