Senior Project Coordinator

In 2015, Alaina relocated to Sacramento, CA and began working as a Project Coordinator in the Education Studio at pioneering architecture firm, Lionakis. Initially, Alaina was one of three Project Coordinators for the Studio but within weeks of her first day, both of her colleagues had left for new opportunities. Alaina rose to the challenge of ‘figuring out’ the firm’s project management systems and software, the meanings behind architectural jargon, and the legal requirements and oversight procedures of California’s Division of the State Architect–before long she had earned the full trust and reliance of the Lionakis architects. Alaina was promoted to Senior Project Coordinator within a year, and continued to function as the studio’s only permanent PC for the duration of her tenure.
