Kimberly Butler

LEED Green Associate, Architect

As a Bay Area native, I returned to this beautiful area after four years in San Diego and seven years in Boston. I love architecture because it is an always-evolving profession and I get to apply my work to my own house.

I love going to the job site. You can walk through the space when it is just a skeleton of its future self.
