“I hope to help lead this new generation of architects who take responsibility to understand the broader economic and social implications of our projects; those with the courage and training to advocate for a better built environment in whatever form best solves the problem.“

Annie is hosted by the East Bay Asian Local Development Corporation, an organization with historic commitments to the Asian and Pacific Islander communities and an ongoing effort to build healthy vibrant and safe neighborhoods for the diverse population of the East Bay. EBALDC has a strong interest in improving neighborhood health outcomes; Annie works to further their Healthy Neighborhoods approach and to instill a culture of design-thinking, collaboration and creative community engagement within the organization.

Prior to her Enterprise Rose Fellowship, Annie has worked in community-oriented design and development as an Intern Architect at Propel Studio and worked to develop a service learning program as Design Consultant at Mercy Corps Northwest. Annie received her Master of Architecture degree from the University of Oregon in Portland, where she received the Mark O. Hatfield Award for Excellence in Design and Public Service, and she has a Bachelor of Science degree from University of Michigan.
