Sandra Nava

Sandra became part of the BBA team in August of 2017. She attended the University of Detroit Mercy where she took part in their 5-year Master’s of Architecture program, which she completed in 2014.

After graduating, Sandra was employed at several small firms in Metro Detroit, where she worked on mostly small to mid-sized office renovations, as well as residential gut-rehabs. After moving to Chicago, she became familiarized with Chicago’s building and zoning codes while working at a 3-person start-up firm in the West Loop.

Sandra grew up in Holland, Michigan amongst the tulips, windmills, and wooden shoes. She now lives in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood with her boyfriend & cat. When not engrossed in work related activities, Sandra is an avid admirer & consumer of South Korean culture. She is currently enrolled in a Korean language class & hopes to visit South Korea in the near future.
