We're pleased to share that Lily Reihs chose to spend time during her spring break helping the team here at Kipp Architecture. Lily is a sophomore at Chatham Hall and is interested in pursuing a career in architecture, specifically landscape architecture.
Lily has been working here with Team Kipp for two years during her school breaks.
When I asked her the 3 most valuable things she's learned here she gave me these wise answers...
You learn something new every day so be prepared and be willing!
You will have to work with a lot of different types of people, but in the end it's worth it.
And, perhaps her most noteworthy response...
Accepting constructive criticism leads to improvement and opportunities.
An 8th grade school project and watching HGTV as a kid sparked Lily's interest in architecture. The area of the home she enjoys designing the most is the master bath. "I find those materials the most interesting and I like to play with the layout and how it corresponds with the master bedroom." said Lily. She mostly uses Chief Architect when she's designing and she's starting to learn CAD.
Lily says that what she likes most about working at Kipp Architecture is the overall environment. "The office is fun, but at the same time, I learn so much every day."

Her favorite color is blue, specifically light teal.
Colleges she's considering are UVA, Tulane, Va Tech, Clemson, and University of Chicago (but it might be too cold up there!).
She plays basketball, soccer, and field hockey at Chatham Hall.
She loves to read and play the guitar.
Lily also works at Camp Piankatank during the summers as a summer camp counselor.
