Amy Moore

Just as Amy’s Australian mini-labradoodle, Murphy, made her into a dog lover, we like to think the creatives at sshape have won over the office’s lone MBA. Amy spent the bulk of her career in and around large corporations, but as sshape’s Business Manager, she’s adjusting to life in our small corner of the design world. Her husband, two kids, and Murphy keep her plenty busy, but she still finds time to walk the architects and designers.

Araceli Torres

Some lucky people just know what they’re supposed to do in life. Araceli Torres is one of those lucky few, zeroing in on architecture early in a childhood packed with painting, arts, and crafts. Thriving on creativity and inspired by the cathedrals of her native Spain, Araceli has a practical side, too, finding happiness in designing efficient spaces that have brought joy to occupants in Spain, India, Germany, and the United States.

Ashley Ranegar

As a designer, Ashley thrives on being able to exercise innovation and strategy to engage and move people. When she’s not soaking in new facts through documentaries or daydreaming about a 1969 International Scout, Ashley enjoys the opportunity to problem-solve and use creativity in the workplace. One of her favorite moments in design is seeing how small, intentional decisions have the ability to create a positive impact on her client’s space.

Briana Traut

Briana has always been a creative soul, so when she was introduced to interior design during an aptitude test in high school, she tried her skills by surprising her mom with several iterations of new living room layouts. Since then, Briana has been inspired by the potential and creativity in shaping experiences and telling stories through design.

Caitlin Friedges, IIDA, WELL AP

Design of the spaces that surround us – at work, at home, and at play – has a powerful effect on how we feel. That connection between the mind and built environment drew once-aspiring psychologist Caitlin into the design world nine years ago. Now, the Minnesota native gets her own psychological boost from watching her clients see their visions come to life, from her dog, Charlie, and from indoor spinning.


Camila Molina

If you hear singing wafting through the sshape office, it means Camila is at her computer, getting down to the business of creating beautiful, flexible interiors. Her decision to become a designer was made before she even had to think about it — a natural extension of a childhood spent painting, crafting, and dreaming of becoming an artist. Now, Camila thrives on creating unique spaces that benefit from her meticulous research into new materials, lighting, and finishes.

Charlene Fowler

Growing up, Charlene always wanted to be a fashion designer until the day she started taking a home decor class in high school. With over 10 years of experience in the industry, Charlene enjoys transforming numerous ideas into a design concept and watching the vision come to life. When she’s not hard at work, Charlene spends time with her fiance, who just happened to be her 4th grade crush.

Courtney Holmes, NCIDQ

Growing up, Courtney enjoyed all subjects in school. This appreciation for various academics led Courtney to pursue design, a career that offered her a great mixture of art, science, math, history, and more. Courtney finds this same love of learning today through her clients and their workplaces. She enjoys creating experiences for her clients that enrich the space through design.

Diran Corria

Diran became an architect to put his stamp on the built world around him. Now, after 20 years in the design world, one of his favorite parts of the process is previewing what that stamp will look like using technology like 3D modeling. Outside of sshape, Diran likes traveling on cruise ships and riding ATVs, but not at the same time.

Dorothee Neumann, NCIDQ, WELL AP

A fearless, think-on-your feet mentality binds the list of characters Dorothee emulated growing up—from Zorro and Robin Hood to MacGyver and Kung-Fu Panda—but only Emma Peel married that swashbuckling mindset with a keen eye for design. Dorothee’s love of both adventure and design led to her role as a Senior Project Designer at sshape, where we definitely keep her on her toes. Instead of vanquishing bad guys, she relishes working directly with clients and savoring a quiet moment to take in a finished space before move-in day.
