Design and code compliance do not always work well together, but Krista Strickland has spent her career finding clever ways to incorporate code compliance into the design of her projects.

Krista has over two decades of experience in architecture, interior design, and code review.  Krista has been involved with projects from a single interior space to large scale office buildings.

Krista grew up building projects with her grandfather in upstate New York. She was introduced to Architecture by her family’s Brazilian exchange student when she was a freshman in high school and has never looked back. In her spare time, she enjoys travel and is on a quest to visit all 50 states. Krista also likes to indulge in her lifelong love of legos with her husband and three kids.
