Katey Ricker, Associate

A 2012 graduate of the Master of Architecture program at the University of Washington, Katey’s passion for design has largely been driven by hands-on experience and travel. While finishing out her degree, she split her time working in the shop of a furniture designer. Her design aesthetic has been greatly influenced by an extended travel abroad to Scandinavia, where she studied the works of Alvar Aalto and many others. In her free time, she enjoys working on her house, gardening, and cooking.
