Catherine Varnas, RA, LEED GA

Catherine joined Canopy in 2019 as a Project Architect. Prior to joining the team, she received her master’s degree in architecture from Roger Williams University in 2013. At school she worked on an interdisciplinary team that identified underutilized historical buildings, engaged with local groups and stakeholders, and re-imagined these structures as new facilities that could better serve their communities and surroundings. After graduating she went on to work on K-12 educational projects, and a variety of other building typologies. She is enthusiastic about architecture that can impact a community through good design.

Outside of work, Catherine strengthens her design abilities through oil painting inspired by her travels. She is an avid reader, and often spends her weekends with her husband trying to discover the best places to read.
