One of San Joses best and brightest women in business embarks on a key leadership role at top green design firm.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) August 29, 2014
Integrated sustainable design firm, LPA Inc., welcomes a new associate to their San Jose, Calif. office. Katia McClain joins LPA as an Associate and she looks forward to being part of a firm so committed to the environment and to delivering 21st century learning environments.
Throughout the past two decades, McClain has been involved in the design, management and construction of complex architectural programs for both public and private educational and commercial clients. In addition to her experience studying and working in the cultural capitals of Latin America and Europe, in the United States McClain has developed an expertise in leading large educational projects. She encourages an atmosphere of intellectual curiosity and collaboration in order to create spaces that have a positive effect on human outcomes.
In a creative career as an architect you need to be challenged and engaged, says McClain. Being part of LPA, a firm where integrated sustainable design is the model used to create better and more innovative spaces, brings such possibilities.
Prior to joining LPA, McClain led business development and project management efforts for the San Jose office of a large architectural firm. She received her undergraduate degree from La Salle University and her master's degree in Urban and Regional Planning from San Jose State University. McClain lives in San Jose with her husband Steve, a product marketing manager. Outside of work, she is active in community charitable organizations, creates art, loves Formula One racing, and enjoys worldwide travel, especially backpacking with her husband.
