Elizabeth Swearingen


Elizabeth became interested in architecture and interior design from an early age because of her father and grandfather. While Elizabeth was in high school, she watched a documentary about hurricane Katrina and after seeing the devastation and displacement that was caused by this natural disaster, she decided to go into architecture to help communities and better people’s daily lives and needs. 

Elizabeth attended Kent State University and received both a BS and a Master’s degree in Architecture. In addition, she has a minor in Historic Preservation. Prior to her studies at Kent State University, she attended the Toledo School for the Arts and majored in Theatre, where she received a vocational degree.

As she has grown as a professional, Elizabeth has taken an extreme interest in passive design and sustainability. As a design professional, Elizabeth aims to be a steward of the land through conservation and sustainable practices as it pertains to the built environment. Her hobbies include traveling, film, theatre, and hiking
