Trula moved from rural Bogalusa, Louisiana to Baton Rouge in 1986 to attend LSU School of Architecture, graduating in 1990. Trula (Haley) then joined forces with Chris in 1995 to form Remson-Haley Architects, and for several years, continued to pursue primarily residential design. Today, the level of empathy she developed in residential design gives Trula a special ability to assist clients to visualize – and then to actualize – projects that routinely exceed their expectations.

On a daily basis, Trula’s insight in early programming and planning phases means that RHH projects company-wide, and particularly in the financial sector, and office/mixed-use arenas, start life with the tight budgeting and scheduling that ultimately leads to success. And because Trula is heavily involved in the early stages of RHH projects, her role is ultimately that of advocate for the client or Owner, ensuring that any desires and concerns voiced early in the planning phases are realized in the construction documents and adhered to during construction.

Trula has volunteered time to the American Institute of Architects at every level including a term as AIA Baton Rouge President in 2001, AIA Louisiana President in 2005, and sitting on the National Board of the AIA from 2008 -2010. She is also active in community organizations including the Mid-City Redevelopment Board of Directors, the Baton Rouge Growth Coalition and the LSU School of Architecture Advisory Board.

When she’s not working, Trula enjoys traveling to new destinations to experience architecture and urban planning, boating with Chris, watching LSU football, working on community projects for Mike the Tiger, and listening to the music of her hero, Elvis.
