WestEast has added two more to our growing family. We are pleased to announce the arrival of Astrid Santos to our architecture group and Rachael Solis to the interiors department.
Astrid originally hails from Laredo, Texas though she is quick to add that she was born in Mexico. After graduating from Texas A&M with a bachelors in Environmental Design and minor in Business Administration, she decided to join us because of the size and diversity of the firm. When Astrid is not working or helping her parents out with their home décor business, she can be found riding her bike around town or checking out the local music scene.
Rachael comes to us from Kansas though she has been here in San Antonio for the last 4 years getting her degree from the Art Institute of San Antonio. Currently, she is enrolled in the UTSA Graduate Program in Urban and Regional Planning. Rachael explains that the biggest challenge in her career so far is the amount of education that is required to move forward, but she knows that with great challenges comes great success. She offsets the stress of school and work with Yoga, reading and a nice glass of wine.
Although our new team members have cited traveling as one of their additional life goals, we are glad that they chose to hold off on that for now to start their career here with WestEast.
