Member Spotlight
We love our members!

Darla Mullett of TRW Oklahoma

Bio.   I am a proud native of the central OKC area, and have loved watching the transformation of our city over the last 20 years.  I received my Bachelor of Business Administration in Marketing at the University of Oklahoma in 1986.  My current career, as Product Consultant with TRW Oklahoma, is career number 3: following a ten year career in Group Healthcare, and an 18 year career as a stay-at-home mom and volunteer. When not working, I enjoy time with my adult kids and grandbabies.  

How long have you been a Member of AIA?   5 years

What is your favorite AIA Central Oklahoma event?   Do I really have to choose just one? If so, I'd have to go with Chit Chat.

What is your favorite thing about AIA?    Now this one is easy.....the people!  I have learned from and been inspired by so many, many people I have met through AIA.

What attracted you to architectural sales Upon re-entering the working world, I totally stumbled upon this industry.  I am so very thankful I did, as I absolutely love my job!

What is one of your favorite designs in Central Oklahoma?   I love the Cherokee Gothic architecture on the University of OK campus.

Do you do any volunteer work?   I have a passion for kids, and have had the privilege to serve in numerous volunteer/board positions for several non-profit organizations including Oklahoma Committee To Prevent Child Abuse, Payne Education, Crossings Christian School, CASA, and Pivot, Inc.  Upon entering the A/E/C community 4 years ago, I was so excited to learn of various volunteer opportunities with professional organizations, and have volunteered for AIA events, served as Director of IIDA OKC City Center, President of SMPS OK and Treasurer for A4LE.  

Window or aisle?    Window

On a Saturday morning, where would we typically find you? On the patio having "coffee with God".
