Since joining KPFF in 2012, Kristen has built expertise across a broad range of market sectors, including healthcare, education, commercial, and residential. She thrives on complex campuses where preservation of existing functions is paramount and applies that same attention to detail and broad vision to all projects, whether large or small. Her practice is characterized by a passion for strategic thinking and communication and her proactive approach to project management looks to find solutions before potential problems materialize. As a mentor in the Los Angeles office and a guest lecturer at the University of Southern California, Kristen is grateful for many opportunities to teach, develop, and encourage the future leaders of the civil engineering field.
