Business Development & Marketing Manager
Sophia Aitken was fresh out of college when she joined Savino & Miller Design Studio. Knowing little about landscape architecture or urban design but wanting to work within the design field, she took the role. Sophia’s background in graphics and especially in Economics has provided a solid foundation for being able to quickly understand the various interests, constraints and assets at play when designing for the public urban environment. Her time at SMDS has fueled a passion for being an agent of change within the community, especially when it comes to the built environment.
Her position has expanded to encompass various projects and responsibilities. Through her initiative, motivation and growing interests, Sophia has had the opportunity to have a key role in a number of the studio’s projects, along with her day-to-day responsibilities of procuring new projects, taking on the administrative duties of managing the business, and attending to the marketing needs of the firm.
