She is motivated by community based projects, where architecture acts as an engine for change. Jheanelle enjoys knowing she makes a difference with her work, both socially and economically. When she begins a new project, Jheanelle asks herself who the building is serving and how the architecture can invest in the dignities of the community that it will serve. Jheanelle’s work ethic, unique perspective, and drive to help others makes RTA and the communities we serve a better place.
