Bringing together a diverse pool of talent around a single shared table, our company is built on open, ongoing conversation. Founded in 1992 by Trey Trahan, the firm is intimate in size but broad in its scope. We engage in a collective questioning of how our process and work can contribute to the health of our ecologies, cities and economies. Each member of the Trahan team is an integral part of a collaborative process that enriches our company culture and improves the quality of our work.
Originally from Yardley, Pennsylvania, Amanda’s education and career have taken her across the country and back; from Portland OR, to Chicago, to Brooklyn, and recently down to New Orleans. With a background in visual arts, architecture, and design she uses this experience to inform her approach to marketing management, public relations, and business development as it applies to the discipline of architecture.
When Amanda is not exploring all of the cultural richness New Orleans has to offer, she is off chasing her insatiable wanderlust for the ocean and love of surfing. She also enjoys kickboxing, trivia nights, and playing nerf football. When she is not spending cherished time with her nieces she is often obsessively watching videos of them.
