Haneen joined BVH in January 2022. Originally from Iraq, Haneen also grew up living in different countries like Syria, Turkey, and Egypt. She received her Bachelors in Architecture with minors in Business and Product Design from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and is looking towards finishing her Master next Spring.
Haneen’s interest in architecture lies in sustainable design and the ways it could contribute to the world. This interest has developed throughout her travels, where she has gained a new perspective and become more interested in how people interact with the built environment and how different factors like culture, cost, and location affect the decision making in design and construction.
Beyond architecture, Haneen enjoys running, biking, swimming, or attending conferences with friends and family. Always in search of new opportunities and things to learn.
