Shirli Sensenbrenner - Senior Vice President, Design & Construction
Shirli strongly believes that "We all have the opportunity to leave the world a better place than we found it” and carries this into all the work that her team does. She is certain this is what shaped her approach towards life, personally and professionally. It is not a simple question of good design (although that is key!), rather it takes elbow grease to truly get into the spaces, understand the positioning, figure out the best direction, wrestle with existing conditions and then craft a vision that is truly unique to its place. Joining Destination was a big change for Shirli, who had spent her early career on the commercial side of design, but it ended up being a perfect fit, allowing her to use her creative design side, management skills and even at times, incorporate her architectural history background. Shirli is inspired by the Destination empowering ethos, summed up as “The Freedom to Go Beyond” as well as a great group of managers on her team and living in Denver with its great weather, tons of outdoor activities, a growing foodie culture and its casual approach to life.
