Bloommiami Welcomes Carolina Verdial

We’re pleased to announce that Carolina Verdial has joined Bloommiami’s growing design team. Carolina moved from Honduras to Chicago back in 2007, where she then earned her Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Illinois Institute of Technology. Prior to joining Bloommiami, Carolina worked as a designer for NORR, where she focused on the development of Starbucks locations. She also has extensive experience in hospitality work, which she loves for the variety it provides.

Her recent relocation to Miami comes with sweeping ocean views, which she captures in her free time with aerial drone footage. She also takes advantage of Miami’s abundant seafood and authentic Peruvian cuisine, and is gradually learning her way around the city through evening uberpool trips home. She knew Bloommiami was the right fit after visiting our workshop and realizing she’ll have the opportunity for hands-on work. In joining our team, she’s most excited to learn about a new field of design, and is driven by her innate curiosity and personal value of lifelong learning. 

Getting to Know Carolina: 

If you could give one piece of advice to newbies in this career path, what would it be?  Communication is key for everything. If you get stuck, don’t be afraid to ask questions in order to keep your workflow going. 

What’s the most interesting architecture you’ve seen?  The Taj Mahal in India. The architecture and millions of intricate details were so beautiful! 

Side note: Carolina has traveled all across the globe, including visits to Ghana, South Korea, Denmark, and of course, India!

Favorite design program?  Revit.

What inspires you?  My community of friends and colleagues. Their support is my biggest resource in everything that I do. 

What would be your spirit animal?  A Macaw. I’ve always had pet parrots, and while it can be a lot of work, I’m able to train them. I can teach them to say short phrases, but the best trick is to potty train them. That makes my life so much easier! 

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their life?  Travel outside your country to see a culture that is the polar opposite of yours.
