A graduate of Louisiana State University with her Bachelor of Architecture, Kimberly harnessed her passion for problem-solving and design from an early age, drawing houses by the time she was nine years old and taking her first drafting course in high school. Today, she advocates for women in the industry and serving as a mentor to young women getting their start in the field.
“It’s like a puzzle—making it function efficiently,designing within budget, meeting applicable codes—it’s all these different layers. Architecture is three dimensions; it’s not just flat. So the problem solving and the coordination of all the different systems has to occur in your head in three dimensions if you are a good architect. You have to foresee where the issues will be and solve them before they become reality.”
