Associate Director Ellie Thomas, AAIA

Title: Architect in Training
Education: Master in Architecture, University of Idaho

Special certifications: Architect in Training, AAIA (Associate AIA Member)

Licenses: N/A

Joined Lombard Conrad in 2014


Design, fashion, rafting, skiing, mountain-biking, Ellie does it all and we don’t know how. At first we suspected there was actually two of her, but that was just her identical twin sister. Turns out Ellie is just a really passionate and motivated person, and a perfect fit for our team. 

Ellie started out as an intern at Lombard Conrad while getting her Masters, but after two years she made things permanent and has worked full time for 3 years. She is an Architect in Training and has skills in Project Management, Design, CAD BIM, and Construction Administration. We told you, we just can’t stop her. 

Hailing from the University of Idaho and the small, rural town of Grangeville, Ellie loves to travel and explore new places, claiming that Italy will always hold her heart, but  deep down, we know, she will always be a true Idahoan.
