Under her leadership, KS Associates has built a reputation for providing exemplary civil engineering and land surveying services on time, within budget, and with each client's best interests in mind. The firm has grown its client base to include the nation's largest big-box retailers, commercial and residential developers, and municipal leaders throughout Northeast Ohio. Recent major projects include providing civil engineering and surveying services for the major expansion program underway at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport (CHIA), and surveying services for the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority (GCRTA) in support of the Euclid Corridor Transportation Project - termed the most important project for the City of Cleveland's future.
