We’re excited to announce our newest team members! Welcome to the team Erica, Yael, and Liz!

Yael Asman
Yael Asman is an incoming fifth-year Drexel Architecture student and joins BHA as a junior designer. She is a wife and a mom of three wonderful children, and in her previous career, was practicing as a fully-trained family physician! She completed her training in 2016, and after giving her career choice a lot of thought, decided to follow her heart and rekindle her true passions. She is loving every minute of learning architecture and has never looked back. To the world of design, she brings a passion for excellence and enthusiasm for the craft, and an aspiration to create smart building solutions for people to habitat. She also brings experience in human communication, the ability to be attentive to people’s needs, and a sense of hard work and discipline. She is having a tremendous time learning all the different aspects of the design process, technical as well as conceptual. In her spare time, she loves music and singing, and is a scuba diving enthusiast, having completed training as a Dive Master.

Erica Masterson
Erica joins BHA as an interior designer with 15 years of experience. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Moore College of Art and Design with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design degree. Erica loves all things outdoors, including snowboarding and hiking. Her favorite holiday is Halloween, the only time of year that it is acceptable to dress up.

Liz Brown
Liz is an interior designer with a background focused on a variety of project types ranging from high-end residential to commercial spaces. Her deep love of art and architecture eventually lead her to relocate to Drexel University where she studied interior design and minored in art history. There she fell in love with the city of Philadelphia with its rich historical backdrop and architecture. When she is not working, Liz can be found immersed in her hobbies, taking classes for screen printing and watercolor at Fleisher Art Memorial, or playing pickleball when she musters the courage to leave her hot tea and warm blankets and go out into the cold.
