New Employee Spotlight

This year, DREAM has enthusiastically been expanding our team and services. Our diverse and dedicated people are what make the DREAM experience unique, and the firm is excited to take this opportunity to share our newest faces and what brought them to the DREAM team.

“The DREAM Collaborative story: “emerging from humble beginnings to redefine the role and responsibility of architecture in urban life” is irresistible to me. As a city person, I take great satisfaction in our mission to strengthen the communities where we live.” – Andrea Baker, Business Development Director

“The DREAM Story. When looking at different architecture firms in the area, I came across this story and mission. I was inspired by the passion to serve the underserved communities in Boston and to use architecture for good. This closely aligns with how I view architecture and what I aspire to in my own architectural career.” – Carley Elliott, Design Coordinator III

“I joined DREAM because I wanted to work for a firm that seeks out progressive clients who share in the values of diversity, equity, livability, and sustainability. I admire that DREAM respects its employees and honors the different facets of their lives. Having grown up in Providence, I’m also excited to be getting involved with planning and design right here in New England after two decades away!” – Diana Marsh AICP, Urban Planner

“Many firms have a disconnect with the people and communities they design for. I was drawn to DREAM because we understand and develop relationships to strengthen the role of an architect not only in the profession but also in society. It has been a breath of fresh air to be part of a firm where everyone has a voice and social justice is an active conversation. We are full of dedicated people who believe good design belongs to all, and we work to address the problems and come up with thoughtful solutions no matter how big or small the project may be.” – Samantha Marihart AIA, Design Coordinator III


DREAM Collaborative summer outing at the BSA

“DREAM’s mission and values motivate me to do my best work every day. I am happy to bring a diverse background to help continue to power the firm’s future. The collaborative work culture supports me as a working mom in a way that I couldn’t have imagined in other places.” – Rosa Herrero AICP, LEED AP, Urban Planner

“Creating environmentally sustainable buildings and cities should be accessible to all cultures and communities. Having worked with the founding principals in the past, and sharing this common vision of making the places we live and work better made, this is the perfect opportunity to continue my passion for building inspiring places for all people.” – Pedro Fagundo AIA, LEED AP, Senior Project Architect

“I was excited about joining DREAM having relationships within the team and sharing the same focus of making the place we live/work better today and for future generations. This was the perfect opportunity to continue my passion for building inspiring space for people, but also to help mentor a creative team that provides great design for our clients and the communities we serve.” – Dorran Prescott NCIDQ, LEED AP, Senior Project Manager/Senior Interior Designer

“I am inspired by DREAM’s value, which is the respect of people. I honor the opportunity to grow with a diverse team in an open-minded and creative environment.” – Deborah Zhuang, Design Coordinator I

“After interviewing with DREAM and learning about the company’s mission and culture: designing for the community, promoting diversity, inclusivity and to encourage the connection of all people people through the overall design, I wanted to be part of the team. I want to use my interior design abilities and skills to contribute to the team’s success in achieving those goals, to do good and to make a difference in this world.” – Joanne Gravina, Senior Interior Designer
