Clarissa Eckert has been in the AEC industry as an Operations Manager just over four years, but she came from fourteen years in the Healthcare Consulting world with roles in operations, implementation, client services and account management. When she first came into the AEC world, she was thrilled because she had finally found her people. At heart, Clarissa is an overachieving perfectionist and planner. She is OK with that. In her mind, she has always been a designer. She took her first metalsmithing class at age 14, and she still loves it. Clarissa also enjoys decorating spaces, and reading about design, travel, and nutrition. Oh, and we must add that she LOVES chocolate!
