Macy Callahan was born and raised in Amarillo, Texas, but has lived in Northwest Arkansas for nearly 20 years. Before pursuing a career in architecture, she sought to become a physical therapist assistant. Realizing that was not for her, she took an aptitude test and discovered her strengths were in art and math. This realization, combined with a passion for art, led to the pursuit of a career in architecture, and her eventual acceptance into the architecture program at the University of Arkansas.
As a graduate of Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design at the University of Arkansas, Macy has learned a variety of skills and techniques for hand drawing and computer software. She is skilled in Rhino, AutoCAD, Revit, and Adobe products. She grew up loving to draw and paint and has adapted those skills to architectural drawings.
While in school, Macy worked on a diverse variety of projects such as a library, housing complex, recreation center, office building, farmers market, airport terminal renovation, and a wood education center. She also worked on a couple of her own projects, including a cabin and a tiny home. As an architectural designer at modus, Macy primarily focuses on K-12 educational projects and is focused on expanding her design experience to multiple areas. She is currently working on becoming a licensed architect.
Macy is also passionate about music, and spends much of her free time singing and playing piano. She is on the worship and production teams at her church, and if money were no object, Macy says she would pursue a career in music. She also enjoys reading, watching movies, drawing, hiking, fly fishing, horses, and spending time with friends and family. One day, you might find Macy in Red River, New Mexico, where she hopes to one day build her own cabin.
