Kahler Slater is pleased to announce the addition of Wekeana Lassiter to the Healthcare Team at the firm’s Milwaukee office.
Lassiter is a design professional with over 10 years of experience. She received her Bachelor of Science in Architecture from University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee and a Master of Art in Interior Design from Savannah College of Art and Design. While in school at UWM, she helped start the student chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects (NOMA) and since the fall of 2019 has played a key role in starting the professional chapter in Wisconsin. She currently serves as the Wisconsin Chapter Vice President.
Lassiter has experience working in all stages of the design process across a variety of market sectors.
She is passionate about the complexities of design and believes architecture is a powerful medium that impacts, not only the humans that use it, but also the environment, place, community and culture it is within.
“Ever since my undergraduate studies, Kahler Slater has been part of my architecture journey. I’m excited to bring my current expertise to the team and look forward to continuing to evolve as a designer,” says Lassiter.
In addition to her role at Kahler Slater, she is fostering the future of the profession through her work as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee School of Architecture & Urban Planning (SARUP).
