Mirelle joined the IDS team in 2016. She serves as the Project Manager for both small- and large-scale projects. Mirelle is particularly skilled at project coordination, construction drawings, detailing for materials and finishes, and construction administration.
While growing up in Brazil, Mirelle learned how design can impact and change people’s lives. This compelled her to earn a Bachelor’s degree in Architecture and Urban Design from Pontifical Catholic University of Goiás. In 2007, she moved to San Francisco, and her love of the outdoors lead her to study Landscape Architecture at U.C. Berkeley Extension. After graduating, she worked in commercial and community development as well as residential design. Inspired by her love for nature, Mirelle continues to expand her knowledge by analyzing and constructing social and ecological schemes in landscapes. She is bilingual (English and Portuguese).
In her free time, she likes hiking in the wild, photographing native plants, or just enjoying the sunset with her husband.
