Julijana was born and raised in Niš, Serbia. When she was about to start college, she was exploring her passions – psychology, philosophy, English language and literature, art, math, engineering – and after not being able to decide what she wanted to study and do in life, architecture came as a combination of all the things she was interested in as architecture requires well rounded knowledge and understanding of many disciplines. She studied for a structural degree in engineering at Niš, Serbia. She moved to the United States in 2008 where she attended San Diego Mesa College and obtained her Associates degree in science. She then earned her Bachelor of Architecture at Woodbury University San Diego. Finishing Woodbury University, she became part of the Tau Sigma Delta Honor Society in Architecture and Allied Arts. She is a California licensed architect and is also certified as a USCBC LEED BD+C Accredited Professional.
Platt/Whitelaw, Julijana’s responsibilities include full coordination of various projects. Her projects include educational, public, LEED certification. She is bilingual (Native Serbian speaker and English).
In her spare time, she enjoys building with lego kits, biking, rollerblading and hiking.
She loves the idea of making the world a better place… she believes that architecture is a team sport that can change the world, and for that to happen, there are many puzzle pieces that need to be solved and assembled. Each piece gives her the satisfaction of knowing she is the change she wants to see in the world.
