Panel Discussion on Guiding Your Career at January Meeting
by Jean Nilsson
Carolyne Orazi, OWA and ASLA member, put together a diverse yet complimentary panel to discuss building and guiding your career in architecture and landscape architecture, held January 29th at Charles Sutter Associates in San Francisco.
Jen Cooper, ASLA, moderated the panel that included architect Cameron White (Kaiser Permanente), and landscape architects Jeff Miller (Miller Company Landscape Architects), Patricia Algara (BASE Landscape Architects), Tim Deacon (Tim Deacon Landscape Architects) and Katrina Majewski. The panel shared their own professional stories and our discussion ranged from working in small and large firms, how to take advantage of being out of work, going out on your own, partnering, collaboration, and practical issues of how to earn a living doing what you love. The themes of social and community orientation and aligning work with your values frequently entered into the conversation.
Participants’ questions and comments kept the evening discussion interactive and lively. Thank you, Carolyne, Cammy, and all panelists and participants, for an excellent event.
