Sydney Nelson


A Montana native, Sydney grew up in Billings. The many hours spent watching her father bring projects to life as an architect led Sydney to fall in love with the culture and process of architecture and design at a young age. This inspired her to pursue her Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Design and Associate of Applied Science in Interior Design from Montana State University.

During her second year of school, Sydney joined Locati as an intern. Having now earned her Master of Architecture degree, Sydney continues toward her lifelong goal of becoming a licensed architect while working as an Architectural Associate. Her background brings a broad and combined awareness of both fields of study to her work. During the design process, she enjoys getting creative, challenging herself, and collaborating with the Locati team.

Outside of the office, Sydney enjoys time spent with family at their cabin in the Bighorn National Forest, watching baseball, honing her architectural photography skills, and exploring the world through travel.
