Kelley Tapia, Secretary

With 20 years of directing high-profile projects as a licensed architect, Kelley is known for
delivering imaginative and intuitive design solutions to her clients at Gensler. Her leadership
perspective and management approach is rooted in empathy and understanding, informed by
extensive experience working on both sides of the built environment design process —as a
client and a senior project manager. Kelley’s intention to design healthy spaces for future
generations led her to EcoRise, first as a volunteer, and now as a board member, has continued
to inspire her to help create positive global change through mentorship and education. She is
both a LEED and WELL accredited professional, lending herself to inform future design
solutions with sustainability and wellness in mind.
