After over twenty years of experience in architecture beginning with work in her father's architecture office as an undergraduate, in 2004, Kathryn began her own firm (KSA) completing architecture on various types of public and private projects . She is currently licensed in California, Hawaii, Connecticut, and Texas. In 1988 Kathryn graduated Suma Cum Laude from the School of Architecture, Planning & Design at Louisiana Tech University with an NAAB accredited Bachelor of Architecture. Part of her architectural internship was completed in New York, Connecticut and Louisiana when she worked for such firms as Kaestle Boos and Russell Gibson von Dohlen (1985-86, designer on Corporate Ridge) and McNaughton Associates (1987, designer on Benjamin Franklin High School) and the final stages were completed in 1988-89 while she played a key role in the design of the award-winning new Carousel Center in Syracuse, NY for Dal Pos Associates (1988-89). In 1989 she became NCARB certified and obtained her license in Connecticut and in California a year later. For an interim period, Kathryn worked for firms including LDA with HOK Architects on the Asian Art Museum in San Francisco, SGPA on new and renovated commercial projects, Robert Lamb Hart, Planners Architects & Landscape Architects, and with Huntsman Group on tenant improvement projects for internationally known property owners including Walter Shorenstein (The Shorenstein Company). Also prior to starting KSA, she teamed up with another local architect on high-end multi-million dollar custom homes in Marin and Sonoma Counties, California.
