L+S TEAM

L+S TEAM

We always want to hear about fantastic prospective employees. Please email a resume and references to info@landandshelter.com.

 


Katie Bauer (Associate AIA) joined the L+S team after graduating from Kansas State University with her Master of Architecture degree. Katie's group masters thesis, Design+Make Studio (a graduate architecture studio at Kansas State University and collaborative project between El Dorado Inc.) was recently recognized with three design excellence awards from the American Institute of Architects.  Her role was the design of a mobile office for the Asian Americans for Equality.

She is inspired by the aesthetic that Colorado has to offer and is excited to gain experience in all phases of design. Her other professional experiences involved a feasibility study with the public school district of Portland, Maine. In her free time she enjoys hiking, baking, sewing, dancing, cheering on the K-State Wildcats, and volunteering her time assisting Aspen Community Theatre.

Fun Fact: She has impeccable balance, tap dances, and likes a great design challenge.


Kelleigh Condon has lived in Colorado for nearly thirty years and the past fourteen years she has worked as a Project Manager in Aspen, bringing Aspen’s custom homes to life. She received her Master of Architecture degree from the University of Colorado, Denver.  Kelleigh is an avid mountain and road biker and races with the Aspen Cycling Club. In the winter she skate skis and telemark skis. She also enjoys viewing art and creating her own ceramic sculptures.

Kelleigh is currently on the Annual Fund Board for the Ross Montessori School. In the past she co-coached the “Girls On The Run” program at Ross Montessori.  She has volunteered for various local trail workdays throughout the Roaring Fork Valley and plans to continue to do that. Her biggest passion, however, is spending time with her daughter, Sage.

Fun Fact: She hiked the Four Pass Loop in a day (12 hours, 25 miles, and 10,000 feet of vertical elevation)!



Kurt Peterson (Associate AIA) grew up in Glenwood Springs, CO and has a Bachelor of Environmental Design from the University of Colorado, Boulder. A native of Colorado, Kurt brings with him vast knowledge of construction from his years as a carpenter, building houses in the Roaring Fork Valley. He applies his construction knowledge in and his experience on architecture projects in China to his current work at Land+Shelter.

He is a current board member of the Carbondale Clay Center and volunteers his time and skills helping numerous non-profits in and around the Roaring Fork Valley including Habitat for Humanity, (co)studio, Glenwood Springs River Clean Up, Carbondale Mountain Fair, and Rock Bottom Ranch (ACES).

He can usually be found chasing fish with his fly rod, skiing with his friends, or hiking with his dog. Kurt is also an avid traveler. Throughout his travels in Asia and Europe, he has gained an appreciation for different ideals, religions, and life styles, which have heavily influenced his design sense.  Kurt believes that harmony is key, and that life is a journey and not a destination, so you might as well enjoy the ride.

Fun Fact: Kurt managed to display hundreds of cup auction cups on the wall without putting a single screw into drywall. (We call that a design challenge!) He also maintains a deep-rooted passion for gummy Bears.


Cassidy Sanderson (Associate AIA, LEED AP BD&C) is a current USGBC Roaring Fork committee member and recently helped to set up and organize an e-bike tour of Aspen. She is actively setting up the Aspen Valley Alpha Phi Alumni group, as a result of being involved in all aspects of Alpha Phi at University of Colorado - Boulder where she earned her Bachelor of Environmental Design.

Cassidy is a native to Colorado who hopped the ridge to us from the Gunnison Valley. She worked as a designer on commercial projects in California before moving back to Colorado, which seemed more like home. While in California, She was previously involved with multiple charity events including the Orange County CanStruction for three years and the IIDA Fashion Costume contest.

Fun Fact: Cassidy is considered the Revit Masta of the L+S office. She is also a shoe-aholic who enjoys roaming around on her bike, running, playing with her dog on the river, and who recently hiked the Na Pali coast in Hawaii with her husband Kyle.


Molly Wheelock (Associate AIA) is a native to Colorado who returned home from stints in Utah, Oregon, and Rhode Island. She is experienced in conservation subdivision planning, interior design, and construction administration. Molly received a dual degree in architecture and in fine arts from the Rhode Island School of Design. She brings an eye for formal composition, structural integrity, and construction detailing.

Molly is active in the community through sustainability initiatives and has worked with Habitat for Humanity, the Kaibab Paiute Tribe, and multiple municipalities to implement renewable energy and energy efficient design. Additional volunteer efforts include Portland Parks & Rec Community Garden Leader, Scraps to Soil Community Garden (High Altitude Demonstration Garden), and Form Tomorrow – Alternative Building Workshops (adobe, straw, earthbag).
