Carrie Heimmer, RA, LEED GA - Associate, Designer

Associate, Designer

A former recreation center manager, certified pool operator, personal trainer and spinning instructor with a myriad of Red Cross certifications, Carrie left her life inside the rec center to step out and design them instead. As a result, she brings her inside perspective and in-depth operations knowledge to the drafting table (figuratively, of course… as part of the new generation of upcoming architects, she’s heard of drafting tables but has never actually seen one). Positive, outgoing and always smiling, Carrie finds inspiration in improving people and communities. We’re excited to see the fresh ideas she brings to our world-class recreation center design practice.
