Katherine’s Story
Coming Full Circle
Before honing her design skills at a handful of firms, Katherine completed a master’s degree in architecture and briefly interned at HED. Eventually, she came back, because she couldn’t find the same range of possibilities anywhere else, having touched more as an HED intern than she did in any previous full-time job.

What Katherine Does
Architecture & Design
Katherine supercharges new projects by mapping out the initial concept and designs, which includes building systems and materials research. Once the final concept is set in stone, Katherine helps ensure it’s carried through exactly as specified in the her project proposal—like the supportive housing development she contributed to near the company’s office.
