2022 AIA Large Firm Roundtable ARE Scholarship
Project Coordinator at Tuck-Hinton Architecture & Design
University of Tennessee, Knoxville
Shanese, a Nashville native, has always gravitated towards utilizing her creativity in various forms of art, design, and outreach. Growing up she attended youth design camps including Design Your Neighborhood and during her higher education, along with a group of students, she helped revitalize the student chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMAS UTK) at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Now Shanese focuses her passion for design, community advocacy, and equity at Tuck-Hinton Architecture & Design as a Project Coordinator. Her work embodies the delicate intersection of storytelling and community advocacy through the built environment. When she is not training for her first half-marathon or studying for the AREs, you can find Shanese volunteering as Co-Director of Programming for Nashville Design Week and PR/Communications Chair for NOMA Nashville.
