Maria Luisa Walker, AIA NCARB

 

Maria Luisa Walker moved from Quito, Ecuador to the United States when she was seventeen years old and two years later went on to attend Berea College receiving her Bachelor of Science in Industrial Arts and Technology. She then attended the University of Michigan where she received her Masters of Architecture – Go Blue!

With ten years of experience in multi-family architecture, she enjoys working on senior living projects at ArchitectsPlus however looks forward to expanding her experience taking on single family, hospitality and commercial projects.

Maria’s favorite Ecuadorian foods are hornado and ceviche. The U.S. equivalent to the hornado is the carnita but it is served with llapingachos, mote and maduro, also known as potato cakes, hominy and sweet plantains.

In her free time, you can find Maria taking a Zumba class. She also loves getting away with her husband Chris when they can find a trail to hike – even better if it’s up in the mountains.
