Her most recent project is Bethune’s biography, published by SUNY Press.

Presented by Kelly Hayes McAlonie, FAIA, LEED AP the Director of Campus Planning at the University at Buffalo. She has spent the past 20 years researching the life and career of Louise Blanchard Bethune, FAIA, the first professional woman architect and has recently released her biography, Louise Blanchard Bethune, Every Woman Her Own.
