Morgan Heffernan

INTERN ARCHITECT

Morgan is a native to the greater Atlanta area and earned her architectural degree from the Georgia Institute of Technology.  While attending Georgia Tech, Morgan studied abroad in Barcelona where she experienced first-hand how delicate and methodical architecture can be in a dense urban environment.  Back at school in Atlanta, she worked in a design studio to create the Guga s’Thebe Children’s Theater in Cape Town, South Africa, then worked with Perkins+Will to help develop intelligent permeable pavers for use in Doha, Qatar.

Morgan’s educational prowess did not end once she graduated.  In addition to contributing to her team at YSM Design, she volunteers her extra time to speak with children and adolescents (K-12) about the importance of creativity in early education and how it affects everyday life.

At YSM Design, Morgan uses her creative skill set in renderings, design intent documents, construction documents, and vendor coordination.  Combining her love for learning with her attention to detail ensures a successful project!
