California-grown in San Jose’s Bay Area, Ray Gontarz was compelled to Washington’s lush terrain and the proximity to Seattle’s urban center. Holding her first job ever at a design-build firm, Ray quickly realized a strong interest in architecture, enjoying the challenge of applying a holistic approach to all facets of design practice, to include permitting, construction, finishes and more. Beliefs that lead her: spaces with modern functionality and visual impact, that create an environment inspired by the users needs.
Ray brings over five years of project management experience with SDCI from permitting to construction. Her experience includes low-rise residential, remodels, tenant improvement and interiors.
When Ray isn’t applying creative solutions to a project, you can find her riding her motorcycle to any live event in the Seattle area!
