    This month we continue our "Spotlight on CSI Membership" and introduce to you Cassie Walker, Associate at Curtis + Ginsberg.

    Cassie moved to NYC 7 years ago after completing her Master of Architecture at Clemson University in South Carolina. She has been with Curtis + Ginsberg Architects for almost 7 years and is an Associate there now. The firm specializes in affordable housing and small institutional projects. She is a licensed architect in New York, a member of the American Institute of Architects and, of course, Construction Specification Institute. She is also an Advisory Board member of the New York State Association for Affordable Housing (NYSAFAH) 2G Board and NYSAFAH 2G Events Committee Co-Chair. Outside of work, she has quite a green thumb, bakes a great brownie, pretends to be a photographer, dabbles in home brewing beer and is a regular at a whiskey tasting series in Brooklyn.

    Cassie, How were you introduced to CSI and what lead you to join our organization?
    I was first introduced to CSI by Angela Centanni at Tandus Centiva. I really enjoyed the first meeting I attended and the people I met there and decided to continue going. I joined CSI to continue the relationships I had made and to support a group I feel is beneficial in the design and construction industry. Read more of Cassie's interview>>
