Dana Burgess
Associate

Dana joined Burns + Beyerl in July 2015 after receiving both her Bachelors and Masters degrees in Architecture from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In her third year of college, Dana studied abroad at the École nationale supérieure d’architecture de Versailles. Traveling to thirteen different countries, Dana grew to love the cultural and historic artifacts of every city. After returning home, Dana focused in a concentration in historic preservation for her graduate studies.

Dana has interned at firms in the Chicago-land area where preservation and restoration played a defining role in the scope of work, both in commercial and residential environments.  Working on custom residential projects has always been a dream of Dana’s.

When not working, Dana enjoys crafting, channeling her inner Julia Child to recreate French favorites, and dreaming of when she can travel to more far off places.
