Director / Senior Project Director
Dorothy has worked with Vanguard since 1997. Her experience in programming, space planning and interior design offers clients a personal approach in meeting their aesthetic and practical needs. Formerly a designer with Gensler, Naomi Leff & Associates and TPG Architecture & Design, she has designed or built retail, residential, restaurant, hospitality, corporate and healthcare work, and contributes the benefit of a design-build perspective toward the construction of all her projects.
In addition, Dorothy contributes logistics when a job requires complex coordination to enable construction to commence safely and efficiently, with the least inconvenience to occupants, staff or neighboring tenants. She possesses excellent interpersonal and supervisory skills, and will go the extra mile for her clients as required.
Dorothy holds a BS in Interior Design from Cornell and is pursuing an MFA in Creative Writing and Literature at Stony Brook University. She represents Vanguard in their commitments to the AIA New York Chapter, Interior Design Hall of Fame, Center for Architecture Foundation, the ongoing internship program with Cornell University and openhousenewyork.
