Jessi Mann passed her final exam in the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB) Architect Registration Exam (ARE). She not only becomes the 13th licensed architect at M+H but she is the second female architect to get licensed at the firm.
“I have always had an interest in architecture.” Mann said. “My grandfather built me a large dollhouse when I was 3. I loved making design decisions and watching him build it.”
“Jessi is one of the most hard-working employees who does a remarkable job with every project she takes on,” said Larry Mitchell, Principal of M+H Architects. “The dedication she has for her work and to her family are second to none.”
Jessi took her first exam in May 2018 and decided to take one exam a month. “The hardest part was just finding time to prepare for each exam between working full time and being a mother.”
The advice she would give her younger self about pursuing a career in architecture would be to not be so hard on myself.
She was presented with an embroidered pull over as well as the inter-office traveling T-square trophy to which she added her name. She’ll get to keep the trophy until the next employee receives their registration! Congrats Jessi!
