Kristen joined the DSK team in August after graduating from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies and a minor in Urban Studies and Environmental Geography. She is intrigued by different urban spaces and the ways in which people interact with the environment. As a big-picture thinker, she believes that it is important to be open-minded, considering all possible angles and solutions when exploring interdisciplinary research in complex urban issues.
Kristen is an active contributor to DSK’s marketing initiatives and is also hoping to encourage the adoption of sustainable office practices. She plans on continuing her education by pursuing a Master’s Degree in Urban Planning. Kristen’s passion for urban design, sustainability, and the natural environment has led her to become a LEED Green Associate, with hopes of also becoming LEED ND in the future.
