mary fitzpatrick-scro,
principal, AIA, LEED AP

Mary received her Bachelor of Architecture from Virginia Tech. Her extensive work experience at the Hillier Group in Princeton, NJ and Ronald Schmidt and Associates in Englewood, NJ has given her broad experience in architecture, across all scales and types of projects. Her time donated to Allendale’s Planning Board, commencing in a co-chair position, has brought a rational, balanced approach to her strengths of bringing sides together in compromise. She is a member of the American Institute of Architects, is a LEED AP professional and NCARB certified.  She is licensed in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Virginia and Vermont.


Combining exceptional organizational, management and coordination skills with a sophisticated design sensibility, Mary helps bridge the gaps between all members and facets found in our projects.  Her adeptness for full integration of architecture and interior design results in a seamless, functional and stunning design impression made by our private residence and commercial projects.
