As a teenager, Karina’s visits to the Kimball Art Museum in Ft. Worth were seminal, inspiring her passion for architecture. Her natural affinity for math and science further refined her focus to architectural engineering. After graduating from the University of Texas at Austin she moved to New York City and honed her engineering skills for 15 years in the office of Robert Silman Associates. With a desire to return to Texas and a keen interest in sustainable design, Karina found that Architectural Engineers Collaborative in Austin was a perfect fit.
