Kim Olson



“Someone once told me to always remember what is important to you. My priority in life is the people in it – whether it’s my family, friends, coworkers, or clients, I’m consistently inspired by and grateful for the community I live and work in.”

Joining Mahlum in 2013, Kim brings 20 years of experience in the field of architecture. Reflecting on her own experiences in the built environment, Kim has a passion for design that enriches the living, learning, and healing environments for all. She takes pride in listening to the needs of all constituents through the design process and her work is rooted in the belief that buildings can support stronger communities when they explore and celebrate the rich diversity of the human condition.

Committed to serving the profession of architecture, Kim has served on various boards and committees for the American Institute of Architects.  She currently is Chair of AIAO’s Legislative Affairs Committee.

Kim earned a Master of Architecture from Tulane University. She is a registered architect in Oregon.
