Tricia Paiz, an AIT in CSHQA’s Sacramento office is here to help and learn. She is proficient with AutoCAD, Revit, Enscape, Photoshop, and InDesign and is continually learning and growing as she assists the team. Initial responsibilities include drafting and attending site visits.

Tricia did not pursue drafting courses in high school. Her first class at St. Louis Community College was Architectural Graphics as part of the Interior Design program. She loved learning how to create perspectives with floor plans and elevations. As she advanced through the program, she realized all the areas she loved were in the architectural classes. Tricia enjoys creating spaces that make peoples’ lives better. “I love how a well-designed space can have a positive effect on how you feel and how you work.”

Tricia is crafty and all about DIY. She learned how to crochet and embroider from her grandmother and taught herself how to make jewelry. She enjoys playing board games and video games. Being from St. Louis, she is a die-hard baseball fan. Go Cardinals!
