Dionne Vertreese Marketing Coordinator



We sat down with Dionne for a snapshot of what she does on a day to day basis, the why behind her passion for DSA, and a little bit of fun along the way.

Q: What does a typical day look like for you?

A: The great thing about my position is, I don’t have a typical day. I get the opportunity to not only be involved in marketing, but also business development. So, on any given day I could be creating collateral, helping to prepare a proposal, helping kickoff a project, or working on improving our SEO and paid search strategies.

Q: What do you most like about your job?

A: I’m constantly amazed by the projects that our team produces, so being able to support and promote our projects every day is easy. Our designers do great work, and I get the privilege of showing it to the world!

Q: What is your favorite project to date?

A: I’m a UT alum, so those projects hold a special place in my heart - I actually got the opportunity to live in Palm Apartments for a few months. So now being able to work for the firm that designed it, and several other buildings on the campus feels like I’m able to give back to the school that gave me so much.

Q: What is your favorite architectural style?

A: Mediterranean, I love the European elements.

Q: What do you do in your spare time?

A: I really enjoy traveling when I’m able, and I have a personal goal to get to all 50 states before I retire. But otherwise I’m a homebody, so I love curling up with a good book and a hot cup of tea.

Q: What is your favorite quote?

A: “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” – Maya Angelou
