Sunni graduated with Distinction from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
in 2006, earning a Bachelor of Arts in American Studies and History. After pursuing
professional development in History of Art with the Oxford University Department of
Continuing Education and UNC-Chapel Hill, Sunni achieved an MSc in Conservation
of Historic Buildings at the University of Bath, UK. Her dissertation on the heritage
value and conservation principles of the Charleston Single House Compound earned
the highest mark in the programme. Sunni also completed a timber conservation
course with the Weald and Downland Museum and attended a Classical Art and
Architecture Study in Rome.
Sunni has since worked with a number of State, non-profit and design consultancies both in Ireland and in the U.S. Beginning as an intern with the Irish Georgian Society (IGS) and later taken on as the Acting Conservation Research Manager, she was principally focused on planning issues and conservation advocacy nationwide. She completed three surveys with the National Inventory of Architectural Heritage (NIAH) and previously conducted a national conservation grant scheme review on behalf of the Heritage Council. Sunni joined MESH Architects in March 2012 as the Architectural Conservation Specialist.
Sunni has lectured at Dundalk Institute of Technology for the Society of Young Surveyors, is an active member of ICOMOS Ireland and of the IGS Architectural Conservation & Planning Committee. Sunni has written for the NIAH and her research was published in Old Salem Museums & Gardens magazine in 2012. She also received the 2012 Preservation Education & Publication Award from Historic Salisbury Foundation, NC. In 2013 she attended the prestigious Attingham Summer School which offered the opportunity to study the history, conservation and modern management of many of the UK's most celebrated country houses and estates.
