An honors scholar while earning a Bachelor of Architecture degree at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, Kristen studied architecture in Rome and interned at New York design firms, where she participated in historic preservation, educational, institutional, and civic architectural projects. Her love of historic buildings in addition to courses at Rensselaer instilled in her the crucial role architects hold in preserving the existing built environment. These factors influenced her choice to pursue a career focusing on the technical intricacies and creative design solutions that are indicative of sustainable design for the rehabilitation of existing building exteriors.

Kristen applies her broad skill set to her role supporting the New York technical team, where she develops schematic designs, construction drawings and details, reviews and processes submittals, and prepares specification documents for building envelope rehabilitation projects. She also performs as a filing representative for New York City Department of Buildings applications, participates in various project administration roles, and serves as co-organizer for the Hoffmann Emerging Professionals Group. Her field work responsibilities include conducting roof and facade inspections for NYC Facade Inspection Safety Program (FISP)/Local Law 11 projects, contract administration progress site visits, and existing conditions surveys. She especially enjoys working on roof replacement and hardscape/plaza rehabilitation projects for various universities and historic/religious buildings.

With a commitment to outreach and service, Kristen dedicates her design and community action experience to numerous volunteer activities.

Kristen is a member of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), National Council of Architectural Registration Boards (NCARB), and the Hoffmann Emerging Professionals Group. She also recently joined the ACE Mentor Program and meets regularly with a team of high school students interested in the design and construction professions.
