Fascinated by the malleability and evolution of living systems in human scale applications, Katie pursued her MLA at Louisiana State University. She is inspired by the articulation of space between architecture and the surrounding environment. Katie’s goals include designing these complex spaces so that they are ecologically dynamic, as well as socially connective- a true melding of art, science, nature and the human element.

Her professional experience ranges from the detailed design of small streetscape spaces to broad-level conceptual design of public parks and hotels. She gained invaluable experience through her public outreach and design support for the Rubey Park Transit Center and Sky Hotel in Aspen, CO; she continues to strengthen her vision of these energetic, high-use spaces through ongoing work on public and streetscape projects.
