Connor Phiel has joined our team as a Project Architect. He earned a Bachelor of Architecture from Virginia Tech School of Architecture and Design in 2016 and after that spent time traveling around the country experiencing as many new places as possible. Connor worked for an Architect in Gettysburg after college and had the opportunity to dive right into a lot of interesting small commercial projects in downtown Gettysburg. This peaked his interest in working within a historical context and small town community. In his free time, Connor tries to spend as much time outside as possible. He frequently mountain bikes and hikes in the local state forests, and enjoys camping whenever he has the chance. Now that he has joined the CRA team, he is excited to work on education-oriented projects and learn more about the creative ways the built environment can help inspire students in their education. “I think the way that school design has evolved, even since I was in school, is very exciting because there is a lot of opportunity for creative and inspiring solutions that can have a real positive impact on their communities.”
And last but not least, Rachael Rutkoski has been added to our team as an Architectural Project Coordinator. Rachael has almost 6 years of customer service experience, and that was ultimately what lead her to choose a different career path. She received a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy, minors in Marketing and Communications in 2013 then in 2022 graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Building Science and Sustainable Design and an Associate’s degree in Architectural Technologies. “Now that I am with CRA, I am excited to be learning a variety of new skills and being pushed outside of my comfort zone to become more experienced in this field.” In her free time, Rachael enjoys backpacking, kayaking and gardening!
