Desiree Mackey has been in the architecture, engineering, and construction industry since the 1990's. After obtaining her bachelor's and master’s degrees from the University of California, Davis, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, she perpetuated her nerdy tendencies with Revit software. She started her career in California with a construction company, she continued with a structural engineering firm, and now she is a structural engineer and Building Information Modeling (BIM) manager at Martin/Martin in Colorado. Desiree is a regular speaker at many conferences. She was a co-founder of the Rocky Mountain Building Information Society, is the chair of the Structural Engineers Association of Colorado's BIM Committee, is a member of the BILT North America Committee, and is a member of the Autodesk University Advisory Council. Finally, as if that’s not enough Revit in her life, she’s married to “The Revit Geek” and acts as a partner in his BIM consulting firm, BD Mackey Consulting.
