Bailey Merrill
Designer
I love that being an architect is both a very technical and a very creative career. I have always enjoyed studying buildings, floorplans, and structures, and also have a passion for working with people to bring their ideas to reality.

As a designer, I will work on a project from initial concept to final product. This allows me to have the chance to be a part of the whole process and gives me the opportunity to work on something new each day. Part of the design process I enjoy the most is collaborating with the design team to develop new concepts and ideas to present to clients. It is also very rewarding to see a client's reaction when they see their ideas coming to life.

I have been with SDS Architects since 2016 and am currently working toward professional licensure as an Architect. My education includes a Bachelor of Design in Architecture from the University of Minnesota. Eau Claire is such an exciting place to live and I enjoy exploring the city with my camera in hand to capture it all. When I'm not exploring, you are most likely to find me experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen. I love cooking and find that it gives me a way to express myself in a creative and delicious way.
