Norma is an experienced interior designer with an architectural background. She holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Universidad Autonoma de Tamaulipas in Mexico, and her resume includes noteworthy projects from Starbucks to the City of Seattle Built Smart program. Architecture helped her discover her creativity, and she now thrives on designing functional, aesthetically pleasing, and sustainable spaces for purpose-driven clients.
A documentary about climate change inspired Norma to focus her interest on sustainable design projects. She has since earned a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Sustainable Building Science Technology from South Seattle College to strengthen her expertise.
Design and Sustainability often go hand in hand to create better buildings and spaces where we spend most of our time. I fervently believe that as a designer, I can contribute by providing to our communities valuable designs of high-performance buildings, which bring long-run savings and healthy air quality and comfort to the environment of the occupants while ensuring the reduction of their carbon footprint.”
During her free time, Norma enjoys practicing yoga, riding her bicycle, and exploring local parks from north to south of Seattle, her favorites being Magnuson Park and Lincoln Park. When the weather is warm — especially on a good sunny day — she’s looking for outdoor activities to enjoy Pacific Northwest nature. During those rainy days, she can get inspired to create abstract paintings.
