Tanya Awadallah

Tanya has a broad architectural background and over a decade of professional experience. As Practice Director, she develops and implements systems and strategies that cater for our expanding practice.

Tanya has an invaluable understanding of practical building requirements and solutions as a result of her considerable experience in the engineering and construction sectors. Her key responsibilities at MHNDU include managing finance, operations, human resources, marketing, communications and our externally audited QSEMS.

Sherina Terza

Studio coordinator Sherina has a background in creative management and production, having worked in the fashion industry for some of Australia’s most prominent designers. After completing her certificate IV in fashion design and business, Sherina went on to work for the iconic Australian-Italian designer Carla Zampatti, gaining experience working across various departments spanning the creative and administrative realms. Always an independent thinker, Sherina entered design competitions with her own work, twice placing in the top ten in the highly competitive NSW Young Emerging Designer Awards.

Sherina also worked in IT for a large PC company in the sales and marketing ecommerce sector for Australia/NZ. In all her roles she always drifted towards the creative and people side of things whether it was designing, assisting with marketing content or client experience.

Sherina’s eye for design along with her vast experience in the practical running of large, recogniseable companies directly translates to her latest role as MHNDU’s studio coordinator. Her creative sensibility allows her to admire and interpret our architects’ design strategies while negotiating the administration behind the scenes.

When Sherina isn’t at MHNDU, she channels her design flair into making her own children’s clothing, imparting her values around sustainability and reuse and creating meaningful family memories.
