SAN FRANCISCO – Nationally recognized architecture and interior design firm Huntsman Architectural Group announces the addition of Alaina Ladner, LEED AP as associate and project architect in its San Francisco office.  With her return to the firm, Alaina will be an integral member of the firm’s sustainability initiatives and help develop programs that focus on innovation in green building design. “I am invigorated by the exchange of progressive environmental and human-centric ideas, particularly with real world applications.  I strive to be part of making the sustainability message a positive, dynamic, and energized one,” notes Alaina.

Alaina obtained a Masters of Architecture from the University of Oregon and a Bachelor of Environmental Design with an emphasis in architecture from the University of Colorado in Boulder.
