MARGRET M. BRUZA
After graduating from the nationally-recognized Oklahoma State University School of Architecture, Margret initially began a career in architecture, interior design and project management in New Haven, Connecticut. This immeasurable experience allowed her the opportunity to work on projects ranging from high-end residential to institutional, such as the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library and the Yale University School of Medicine. Following several years of fulfilling work on the East Coast, she returned to Oklahoma where she focused her efforts on architecture, interior design, marketing and business development at FSB, an architectural and engineering firm located in Oklahoma City. Ultimately, Margret discovered her true passion in graphic design and web development and established her own graphic design firm. Some of her most recent work has been with the Oklahoma Centennial Commission, Rotary Club of Oklahoma City and Oklahoma City Gun Club. An ADDY award winner, and Friends of NRA Committee member, her ingenuity in developing unique solutions for clients is a direct result of her strong organizational skills and commitment to forming solid relationships.
Inspired by everyday life's sights, sounds, colors, composition, and textures, Margret enjoys fishing, hunting, cooking, spending time outdoors, staying involved in church activities with her husband, Jim, and son, Josh, and playing with their three Whippets, Marilyn, Rio, and Murphy!
