A Building Systems Engineer at CMTA’s Boston office, Kiersten Washle is passionate about helping clients understand how green technologies work for their buildings and the environment. She holds a B.S. in Systems Engineering & Sustainability and an M.S. in Engineering Management, both from George Washington University and an MBA from Quantic School of Business and Technology. This combination of business savvy and technical prowess enables her to make a case for sustainability from engineering and economic perspectives. “My biggest professional goal is bringing the built environment into harmony with the natural one,” Kiersten says.
In the past year, Kiersten obtained her CEM, Living Future Accreditation, and ActiveScore AP. In addition, she’s an active volunteer in her community, formally serving as a mentor through the Metrowest MA Big Brother Big Sister program and GEM, Girls E-STEAM Mentoring, for middle-school girls interested in STEM careers. Kiersten also holds many volunteer positions within professional organizations, having served on the Built Environment Plus (BE+) board and now serving with CWEEL and the Boston ASHRAE chapter board. A houseplant enthusiast, container gardener (her microgreens are particularly successful), podcast devotee, and active DIY salvager (driven by her desire to save usable items from the landfill), Kiersten’s love for sustainability extends to every part of her life.
Together, these four award-winning engineers represent the breadth and depth of science and building leadership at CMTA. Their diverse talents, experiences, and perspectives come together in a shared passion for helping every client understand how every project can perform to meet client needs and improve the built environment for everyone.
