Congratulations Newly Licensed Architects

Over the past year and a half, we've had six people in our office become licensed architects! It is with great pleasure that we congratulate Pavel Ivanchuk, Natasha Dunwoody, Ericka Lanter, Morgan Perry, Patricia Sanchez de Andrei and Melissa Harlan on this great achievement. Becoming licensed is no easy task and requires completing numerous IDP hours (5,600 to be exact) and passing 7 exams before you can officially be licensed.  Although challenging at times, these individuals stayed the course and officially passed their final exams!

Pavel graduated from UCLA with a Master of Architecture and Urban Design.  He has been with Christner for over 6 years, most recently working with Washington University School of Medicine on the 4515 McKinley Research building project.

Natasha attended the University of Pennsylvania where she received her Master of Architecture degree. She joined Christner in 2013 and has been working with clients such as BJC Healthcare and Blessing Hospital.

Ericka attended the University of Illinois where she received her Master of Architecture degree.  She has been with Christner for 4 years and her clients include SSM Health and BJC Healthcare.

Morgan graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a Master of Architecture degree. Morgan has been at Christner for over 2 years now, working with clients such as SSM Cardinal Glennon and Edward Jones. 

Patricia also received her Master of Architecture from Washington University in St. Louis and has been with Christner for over 2 years. Her clients include Great Circle and the Pulitzer Arts Foundation.  

Melissa received her Master of Architecture from Harvard University.  She joined Christner in 2013 and has been working with clients such as Edward Jones, Knox College and St. Louis County Library.

Way to go everyone! We couldn’t be more proud!
