Kia A.

Field Engineer

I received my BA in Fashion Design from The Art Institutes International Minnesota, and after discovering the passion I had for the world of construction, I attended Dunwoody College of Technology to obtain my certificate of Construction Project Management. Since changing career paths, I joined the Gardner Builders team in 2021 as a Field Engineer where I have the opportunity to be out on the job sites with our trade partners. My favorite aspect of my job is being able to really connect with those we work with on projects– learning about their unique skill sets, diverse backgrounds, and hearing them speak with such passion about the work they do. I love that I have the chance to collaborate with other dedicated professionals to create something special for our clients. 

In my free time, I love spending time with my big, loud family. I enjoy all things outdoors, especially camping, trail riding, and boating. As a creative, I am always working on projects be it painting, drawing, sewing, woodworking, or designing. 

My favorite tool: Tape measure
