Nancy Brady
Office Manager

Nancy’s serious side keeps the business running. She handles the accounting, HR, purchasing, client contact, etc. Basically, if it’s not Design or CAD related she has it covered. Though she enjoys giving her two cents whenever the opportunity arises. Her black Labrador Quinn occasionally provides support at the office as receptionist and morale booster for Architectura as well as neighboring businesses.

Away from the paperwork, Nancy likes to exercise her right brain. Not as often as she would like, you can find her at her local ceramic studio throwing bowls and other utilitarian objet d’art. You may even see her as a vendor at a craft show. Her love of family, community, and typically everything dog keeps her busy and typically out of trouble.
