Kumin has promoted architect Sarah Salazar to the position of Associate, making her the youngest Associate in Kumin’s 40-year history. Sarah joined Kumin in 2010, relocating from New Mexico, where she served as a contracted Project Manager for the United States Air Force, where she managed large-scale military projects from programming through construction. During her seven years with Kumin, she has undertaken increasing responsibilities both within the firm and the local design community. She is the 2017 President of the Alaska Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, and has previously held many leadership positions within AIA Alaska dating back to 2012. She is currently providing design services for the Southcentral Foundation Children’s Dental Clinic/Medical Office Building and Parking Garage on the campus of the Alaska Native Medical Center. Previous design projects include a major renovation to the Boney District Courthouse, West High School/Romig Middle School Career Technical Education Additions, and a major expansion of the Ketchikan Shipyard. In addition to mentoring younger Kumin staff members, Sarah is also committed to community involvement, volunteering and participating in events that include community-wide clean-ups, Bike to Work Day Treat Stations, local marathons, triathlons and business soccer teams. A licensed Architect in both Alaska and New Mexico, Sarah received a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Arizona and is also a Certified Document Technologist (CDT).
