“My job title should be ‘dot connector.’ I enjoy creating a network of interconnected people doing outstanding work together.”

Falynn’s background in architecture makes her uniquely qualified to serve as one of the first points of contact for clients with the firm. She was once given this piece of career advice - Figure out who you are and find a job that values your skills and personality. Falynn has certainly found a home for her skill set as part of the national business development team at DLR Group.

She grew up in a state-of-the-art, custom-built home designed for handicapped accessibility. It was built to serve the needs of her mother who had multiple sclerosis. This experience inspired Falynn to become an architect and impacts how she thinks about the built environment and design to this day.

In a world that is accelerating and expanding, Falynn believes that design has a place in how we navigate these changes. She envisions a growing need to for well-designed spaces, which use fewer resources and give back to the community. She feels that intelligence and creativity are contagious, and that DLR Group and the greater design community have a significant role to play in shaping the future of our environment.
