Kionna L. Walker, LEED Green Associate

As a child, Kionna enjoyed drawing and putting things together. In the eighth grade she was exposed to Industrial Arts which combined drawing and building. It was then that she knew she wanted to be an Architect. The fire that ignited her passion was seeing that all of the men in her family were skilled carpenters. The two questions that always sparked curiosity were: Why didn’t any of the women in her family do things like this? How is it that the men in my family can just start building without drawing anything?

Fun Fact: Kionna was born in Heidelberg, Germany
