Second Act Awardee


Erin Curley

A woman who draws from a previous life and work experiences to find success as an entrepreneur. 

"This award provides an opportunity to spread awareness of how vital ALL voices are in designing our communities through architecture and inspire the next generation of women to believe in their dream and pursue it with passion."

Erin Curley is the owner and sole inspiration at Engage Studio Architects. She discovered her love of design in high school and went on to become a trained, qualified architect and a member of the prestigious American Institute of Architects.

When her career in Toledo took a change in 2019, she opened her own firm. In less than a year she was successfully running Engage Studio Architects in a pandemic. She has grown this business year after year, with new projects that are predominately community enhancements. She has made this happen with her own grit and capital.
