A Chat With...Kim Ratcliffe

Kim Ratcliffe Administrative Assistant



We sat down with Kim for a snapshot of what she does on a day to day basis, the why behind her passion for DSA, and a little bit of fun along the way.

Q: What does a typical day look like for you?

A: I spend my days answering phones, typing up memos, running errands for the office, and helping the team around the office any way I can.

Q: What do you most like about your job?

A: I love my job because I get to work with my husband, and the rest of the team. Andy is always busy, and I enjoy being involved in his company because I don’t have to ask him what his day was like, because I am there to see.

Q: What is your favorite project to date?

A: Gulf Blvd, I looked at it for so long on paper and watched as it progressed. One day Andy and I were out and about running errands, when he pulled up to the house. It was beautiful and amazing to actually be there looking right at it, and to be able to take a tour. Just beautiful.

Q: What is your favorite architectural style?

A: I enjoy all styles.

Q: What do you do in your spare time?

A: I love my garden, orchids are one of my passions. And of course, spending time with Andy and our dog Murphy on the weekends.

Q: What is your favorite quote?

A: “Meet resistance with no resistance.” – Peter Marinelli
