Karri, with over ten years’ experience, has been promoted to Senior Associate. Since joining SBA, Karri has primarily focused on healthcare and senior living projects.

Throughout her career, Karri has been actively involved with getting young people interested in the A/E/C industry through multiple industry mentorship programs and she is currently serving as a mentor for the Professional Women in Construction Connecticut Chapter’s Mentorship program.    

Mark has been promoted to Associate Principal. Mark has 30 years of experience working across multiple market sectors. Since joining SBA in 2011, he has worked primarily on projects at Baystate Medical Center (BMC) in Springfield, Massachusetts. He is currently working on SBA’s first tri-party integrated project delivery project at BMC, which is set to be completed one month ahead of schedule.  Mark serves as a Board Member on the Grafton Historical Commission and is a past committee member of the Hopkinton Design Review Committee. He has also served as a thesis advisor at Boston Architectural College.

Theresa has been promoted to Associate Principal. Joining SBA in 2013, her high energy and skill level enable her to repeatedly plan, design and develop health care environments that both reflect and inspire healthy attitudes. As a health care planner with over 18 years of experience, Theresa has continually demonstrated her expertise in planning, designing, and developing a variety of health care facilities.
