Cynthia Leibman has been working in the profession for nearly 20 years. Cynthia has a Masters of Architecture degree from the University of Maryland and an undergraduate degree in French and International Studies from Earlham College. After a few short years on the East Coast, she missed the sunshine and mountains of her childhood and returned home to Colorado and has been back since 2003.
Cynthia has worked for a variety of firms in Denver over the years, primarily on mid-size to large public sector projects in both Project Architect and Project Manager roles. Most recently, Cynthia has been with the Denver office of Page Southerland Page managing large complex commercial projects. Some of her favorite projects have been community recreation centers and National Park Service projects that she worked on while with Barker Rinker Seacat and large Higher Education projects she worked on with AR7. Her favorite local project was managing the design of the Carla Madison Rec Center for the City of Denver while with Barker Rinker Seacat. What she enjoys most about architecture is working directly with community groups to create design solutions that are meaningful to the community and fit seamlessly into the surrounding environment.
Cynthia has a passion for teaching and mentoring and has often channeled that passion into internal mentorship and training programs at the firms where she has worked and is always excited for opportunities to share her professional knowledge with students. As an early adopter of BIM, Cynthia led professional Revit trainings and standards within her firms and also taught an introductory BIM course in CU Boulder's ENVD department. Cynthia has also volunteered with the Denver Architectural Foundation's CAL project, the ACE Mentorship program throughout the years.
When not too busy with architectural pursuits, Cynthia enjoys spending time with her husband, young daughter and energetic small dog skiing, hiking and exploring the great outdoors.
