DESIGN MANAGER | ARCHITECT
WHO IS KATIE?
The Queen of Coordination, Katie is one of our Project Leaders here at SDA. Previously a Sole Practitioner whilst raising two young kids, this busy Mum sure knows how to keep the scales of life in balance. Katie has an intuitive ability to connect with her clients with her approachable nature and excellent communication skills. Her keen interest in how people interact with design and architecture are all the motivation Katie needs to drive her projects forward from conception to completion.
Don’t mistake that sweet smile; this lady is tough as nails. When she’s not discovering new quirky children’s books for her family or chasing them around the park, Katie is known to pursue physical feats, pushing her body to its limits in half marathons, outdoor obstacle events and even cycling through Cuba!
ON BEING AN ARCHITECT
Being an architect is geekily all I’ve wanted to pursue in the workforce from a primary school age. And yet all these years later, the innovation and problem solving that is required in every project keeps my passion for architecture alive.
Whether it is creatively broadening a project vision or using our skill set to facilitate improvements in the built environment, it is so satisfying to be in a profession that is never static and critically has USER objectives at the forefront of the architectural intent!
