Krista Simons Gliva, AIA, LEED AP



Krista’s experience in all phases of the design and construction process,  along with her versatility working in many project roles has made her a valuable member of the design team. Her intrinsic optimism coupled with her technical skills and natural ability to decipher and solve complex problems is indispensable when working on CTA projects.  Krista’s approach to architecture involves seeing ideas become reality by tenaciously working to maintain design integrity and project goals throughout the design and construction process.

Krista is a downstate transplant who currently calls Evanston home.  When she is not in the office, you can find her out on the town with her family and friends, enjoying a ballgame, neighborhood festival, or school function.  She is also involved in her church as a Sunday school teacher and a minister for people with disabilities.
