ASSA ABLOY  is a Swedish firm which originally started making locks. As they grew over the years, they acquired other companies and grew into an international leader in a variety of manufacturing. They hired Katelyn in 2015.  She remains a member of their team yet today and says she loves her job. 

Katelyn, being a recent KACC Drafting Student, had no difficulty relating to students, who were very engaged and asking lots of questions.  She explained how she is able to utilize her architectural  background helping other project architects with ASSA ABLOY's doors, frames, and hardware in all of the proper applications. Her knowledge is used to help architects insure their buildings are safe (according to architectural codes), secure, and accessible.

Thanks Katelyn for coming to share your knowledge and experience with our students. Come back anytime.
