Yuko loves to design and work collaboratively with her clients. While designing, she pictures how people will move through the space to focus on all aspects of the project. Yuko has 15 years of experience in a wide variety of project types, including multi-family residential, mixed-use, retail, high-tech, commercial, and education. Her work at Pinnacle has focused on affordable housing, both new construction and OHCS, and USDA RD-funded renovations. Seeing the impact of these projects on the residents is greatly rewarding for Yuko. She is a Washington registered architect and worked in Oregon, Washington, and California.
When not designing projects that change lives, Yuko enjoys family life in the Portland area with her Civil Engineer husband and two elementary kiddos. Yuko is fluent in Japanese and enjoys warm beach vacations. Before kids, Yuko was quite the daredevil. Be sure to ask her about her pre-kid adventures!
