Kristin is a Senior Associate at Saam Architecture, leading many of Saam’s higher-ed projects. As a licensed architect and NCIDQ certificate holder, Kristin values the combination of functional and aesthetic design in her projects. She has a background in a variety of project types, including higher-ed, workplace, sports and recreation, healthcare, and hospitality.

She follows through with these goals, emphasizing their importance throughout the construction process.
