DETERMINATION: That’s What These KNBA Employees Bring to the Table!

Sara Woods, Katie Halsey, and Kathryn Sanders all persevered during a turbulent time for us all and made their own story. Congratulations to these ladies for their achievements in 2020-2021.

Sara Woods, AIA was promoted to Associate for her hard work, diligence, and commitment to KNBA’s clients. Not only has she maintained a hefty workload but has played a key role in advancing her leadership and execution skills. Some of Sara’s current clients and projects are Oldham County Schools, Haymarket by Ashbourne Farms, and the Renovation of the House on Helm (Benjamin Helm House) in Elizabethtown, Kentucky which is on the National Register of Historic Places.

Kathryn Sanders and Katie Halsey, AIA, both passed all six divisions of the Architect Registration Examination (ARE) and earned licensure this year. This career-defining accomplishment comes from their individual superb self-discipline and dedication. They both play a vital role on KNBA’s team:

Kathryn has been an instrumental team member on the Shelby County High School (SCHS) Renovation and SCHS and Milestone Athletic Fields. She has supported all aspects of the design process bringing consistency and precision to the project. She has played a vital role with imagery on various projects and has been a go-to resource for the City Center Apartments project in Bowling Green, KY. While managing this aggressive schedule, Kathryn is also a volunteer for Habitat for Humanity.


Katie works on a diverse range of projects bringing her dynamic skillset in various stages of the project. Her focused and detailed project work includes the University of Kentucky College of Design, First Presbyterian Church of Lexington, SCHS Renovation and SCHS and Milestone Athletic Fields, and the Kentucky Capitol MEP Upgrades. Along with getting her Architect registration, Katie graduated with Ignite Louisville Class of Spring 2020 and is serving on the board of Families for Effective Autism Treatment.

Hats off to these ladies for their hustle and determination. KNBA is pleased to have them on our team!
