As Project Director of our Seattle office, Keryn brings expertise in leading performance-based designs and cultivating strong working relationships. She provides fire and life safety solutions that meet her client’s goals for a wide range of building types—including high-rises, open office buildings, major retail developments, and adaptive reuse projects. Throughout her tenure at Holmes (in both Auckland and Seattle), Keryn has applied her knowledge of the balancing act of smoke modeling and egress design for complex, award-winning buildings. She also mentors budding fire engineers and introduces undergraduate students to the possibilities of a career in fire engineering. Her dedication to the profession earned her the President’s Award, the highest accolade granted by the Society of Fire Protection Engineers in New Zealand. When she’s not running simulations, Keryn can be found running long distances on mountain trails.
