A little about me

Tell us what/where is your favorite place to draw inspiration …

Art Museums, galleries, vibrant art districts are some of my favorite great places to draw inspiration. We also have regular family art challenges at home. Whether its painting, 3D models, or building with lego, its great for your brain to be creative in a variety of ways.

Tell us what made you decide on your career path …

My dynamic cross-section of experience in business, marketing, design, and community service has brought me to the field of architecture and design.

My husband, architect, Andrew McCready, and I have been a strong team for more than a decade. We’ve worked together with a premier architecture firm, Selser Schaefer Architects, in Tulsa, Oklahoma and our own firm, 563 Design, in Dubuque, Iowa.

We joined FEH Design to continue our work to create impact through architecture, with a deep bench of talented designers to collaborate with.

Tell us about your favorite hobby outside of the office …

I invest in my church community as the children’s ministry director. I get to create captivating classroom environments, teach children, and work with a dedicated ministry team.
