“My favorite aspect about working at KPA is the people and the atmosphere. The people I work with get me excited about coming to work. Everyone at KPA is willing to provide their expertise when needed and trusts that I will get the job done correctly and on time. The project impact has also led me to my decision to join KPA full-time after graduation. When I first started my internship at KPA, I knew they had a presence within Central Texas. Once I became more experienced with the firm, I realized that their work positively impacts many communities within the Central Texas area. I enjoy designing projects where I live and pointing out the projects that I have worked on with KPA.”
