Originally from Colorado, Martina graduated with her Masters of Architecture from Montana State University in 2008. She then spent time with firms in Anchorage, Alaska, as well as Dillon and Billings, Montana, before joining Bechtle Architects in 2017.
Parrish is continually inspired by Montana’s rich history and way of life, which informs and compels her design process. Managing design-build projects has taught her the importance of organization and effective communication to keep projects on time and on budget. She has a wide range of experience – from educational projects to commercial music venues, small residential designs to interiors. She is proficient in hand-drawing and software programs for developing schematic designs and construction documents.
Outside of work, Martina loves to travel: getting lost in the wilderness of Montana, experiencing and enjoying its vast landscapes, will always be one of her passions.
