“I love that moment when they realize they’ve underestimated me.”
– Jaime Lynn Masler, AIA, LEED Green Associate
On Monday, December 16, 2013, Trinity Hall welcomed Jaime Lynn Masler, project architect for DIGroup, as the third speaker in our “Women in Leadership” series.
Jaime, a licensed architect and a member of the team responsible for designing the permanent Trinity Hall school campus, has over 13 years of design and management experience with projects in the healthcare, public education and private education markets. Her roles and responsibilities include, but are not limited to, code review and analysis, development of project specifications, materials research, design development and detailing, construction documentation, management of project schedules, and construction administration. Jaime is a member of the American Institute of Architects and is a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Associate, credentialed in the most current green building principles and practices.
Some key lessons from Jaime’s presentation:
- It’s important to make a good first impression.
- Making connections is a positive way to expand your network and “get your foot in the door.”
- The key to a successful career is to love what you do. You don’t have to love it every day, but you should be passionate about your profession.
- Remembering the little details is impressive and makes people feel special.
- Architecture relates to the core values of Trinity Hall: you must know when to take initiative and when to let others lead (leadership); you must recognize the contributions and experience of all players in the building phase (respect); you must overcome challenges and find a way to get things done (perseverance); you must get your clients to the end goal (faith).
