Kate McBride

CFLC, LEED Green Associate

Designer I

Kate joined Clanton & Associates Inc. in 2022 as a Designer, making a career pivot from the residential planning industry. She developed an interest in lighting design after experiences with light pollution led her to include lighting as a critical component in her master’s thesis, which studied how urban design can impact mental wellbeing. Balancing the distinct needs of projects, the environment, people, and the night sky is her design passion.

Kate received her Bachelor’s in Architecture with a minor in psychology from Texas Tech University in 2015 and her Master’s of Community and Regional Planning from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2019. She has since achieved her Community Friendly Lighting Certification from the IES and SOLA and is a LEED Green Associate. Kate is a member of the APA (American Planning Association) and the Colorado chapter of the IDA.
