Shiva has had a passion for architecture since she was a little girl, sparked by visiting historical houses in Kashan, Iran – which despite being ancient, were both beautiful and sustainable. She started her higher education in architectural engineering and shortly after moved to the United States and continued her education in architectural design.
She is a recent Cal Poly graduate and joined the Ward-Young team in 2020. She currently works in design assistance, preparing presentations and construction drawings for commercial and residential projects.
In her free time she enjoys cooking, roasting her own coffee, playing piano, and sketching. Her favorite sport is snowboarding, and she also enjoys hiking. She enjoys traveling to learn about other cultures and interact with new people.
