Teresa Kellim is all about the details. During her 24 years at CSHQA, she has developed an ability to bring multiple disciplines together to solve complex problems — in fact, she is the firm’s go-to manager for detailed federal and state government projects. As a Senior Architect, she has grown CSHQA’s involvement in communities and projects in the southern Oregon region.

Teresa’s interest in architecture began when she was drawn to home improvement projects during her time in FFA. Art and drafting classes followed, and then an independent study her senior year of high school transitioned into college architecture courses. She joined CSHQA two years into her career and spent many years as an on-call architect for health care projects.

Her newest work for the Veterans Administration Southern Oregon Rehabilitation Center and Clinics includes replacing aged, seismically unsafe 1940s structures with new, much-needed housing and residential rehab facilities. The VA projects also tie in with one of her missions in life: Service.

If you know Teresa, count yourself lucky — one of her favorite pastimes is giving gifts.
