As Vice President of Operations, Adela oversees all projects in the design phase at our Indianapolis studio location. She focuses on assisting the Indy team with resolving complex design and code challenges to ensure projects move forward smoothly. She also leads exterior conceptual design and supports the development of these concepts as they are translated into the final construction drawings.
Adela is a licensed architect with a Master of Architecture degree from Ball State University. She started working for MDA on the local projects team where she gained experience with a wide variety of project types including diagnostic laboratories, breweries, fitness centers, physical therapy, and more. After a few years, she became more involved with animal healthcare, ultimately managing several specialty hospitals with complete imaging and oncology treatment capabilities. Adela now enjoys the variety that comes with supporting all Indy-based projects and finding ways to integrate nature into the design.
Enjoying nature, hiking, biking, camping, canoeing, or any other opportunity to explore the outdoors is Adela’s favorite pastime. She’s also passionate about exploring through food, whether that’s cooking farm to table from her garden or trying out the newest experimental menu in town.
