As a little kid living in Manhattan, Libby felt connected to the built environment and developed an awareness for the significant ways in which design shapes people’s experiences. From the awe of skyscrapers to the comfort of a window seat, she learned to have an appreciation for how design supports and augments the way we all live.
During her days at Goody Clancy, Libby spends most of her time shepherding the design of projects from programming, concept design, and through construction completion. One of the most rewarding parts of her job is hearing about how a project has created new ways for people to connect and share ideas. Throughout the design process, Libby empathizes with and understands the motivations of each project stakeholder to translate their goals into the built environment. This work is best exemplified by Libby’s contributions to the University of Virginia Physics Building, a design which turns an introverted building into one that celebrates learning, sharing, and collaboration.
Libby spends most of her time outside of work fighting the weeds and bunnies in her garden or trotting her kids around town in her cargo bike.
