We are proud to announce the newest members of our team, Whitney Hackett (L) and Lydia Nicole Hermo (R).   

Whitney Hackett

Whitney, originally from Nashville, TN, is a recent Cum Laude graduate of the University of Tennessee where she earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree.  She also holds a Business Administration minor and was a Tau Sigma Delta Bronze Medal Semi Finalist.  While at UT, she volunteered her time and efforts with numerous councils and committees, and she served as the American Institute of Architecture Students President from 2013-2014. Prior to moving back to Nashville, Whitney worked in Atlanta, GA where she gained experience in the design of residential and retail developments. 

Whitney is excited about becoming more engaged in Nashville’s organizations and wants her architectural experience to be a positive influence for the growth of the community.
