Parahita joined WJW in fall of 2019. Previously, she worked for an architecture firm in the Chicagoland area managing fast-paced corporate retail interior projects located in multiple states, as well as workplace renovation projects of a corporate office. Prior to her time in the commercial sector, Parahita worked at a Chicago-based architecture firm working on multi-family affordable housing, single-family homes, urban planning, and neighborhood development projects.
From her experiences growing up in a densely populated city in Indonesia, living in Kentucky and South Carolina, and now in Chicago, Parahita is interested in the urban environment and exploring the role of design to improve communities. She received a B.A. in Architecture from the University of Kentucky.
In her spare time, she enjoys spending weekend mornings taking care of her plants, watching stand-up comedy, cooking, eating, and traveling.
