After recently hitting five years of tenure with CTA Architects Engineers, Amy Lindgren has passed her architect registration examination; she’ll now be able to drop the “in-training” suffix on her job title. With both a BA and master’s degree in architecture from Montana State University, Lindgren says she’s proud of this achievement. “This is a huge accomplishment for me,” she said. “Getting licensed has always been the next step after graduation, and it wasn’t easy.”
Originally from Sheridian, WY, Lindgren transferred from Billings, MT, to CTA’s Boise, ID, office in October.
Though her focus has mainly been healthcare-related, Lindgren’s CTA project credits include branches for accounting firm Anderson ZurMuehlen and Stockman Bank, both in downtown Billings; plus Johnson County Healthcare’s Amie Holt Care Center in Buffalo, WY, and Billings Clinic’s new Reger Family Center for Breast Health.
When she isn’t busy designing buildings, Lindgren loves to hit the slopes, and for the past five years has volunteered with Eagle Mount of Billings, an adaptive program that teaches physically disabled and mentally handicapped individuals to ski. She’s also a shutterbug.
“My original major was actually in photography,” she said. “I applied and got into the program, but my acceptance letter got lost in the mail, so I had a friend in architecture and thought, ‘Hey that looks like fun!’ And the rest was history.”
“So I just kind of fell into architecture, and love it!”[Also see coverage in the Idaho Business Review.]
