Lindsey Werkhoven, RA
With over a decade of experience working for a variety of design firms, as well as the related fields of lighting and interiors, Lindsey’s background complements the interdisciplinary approach at Board & Vellum. She especially loves working with the craftspeople on the projects she manages to better understand their craft and how to highlight their talent.
Lindsey grew up in Seattle and ventured to New England for her undergraduate degree at Connecticut College, followed by a Master of Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design. She worked in New York City for a year before moving back to Seattle where she met her husband, also a Northwest native.
In 2010 Lindsey received a Fulbright grant to research architecture and artisans in Fez, Morocco, where she studied Arabic and learned how to navigate the maze of streets in Fez’s medina. She then moved to Salt Lake City where her husband flew for a cargo company and she worked for a decorative lighting designer and manufacturer called Hammerton. There, she worked as a product engineer designing lights and watching them get built in the in-house fabrication shop. She and her husband, son, and dog moved back to Seattle in 2015 and bought a Craftsman house in the Hillman City neighborhood.
When not working on remodeling projects of her own or for clients, Lindsey loves to travel with her family and spend time up at her in-law’s dairy farm in Snohomish county.
