Arch11 welcomed its first office manager, Christa Pisto in 2016. Christa comes to us with a rich background in administrative management and marketing as well as experience as a lead Montessori preschool/kindergarten teacher—a skill that comes in very handy in maintaining the order of an office of architects and designers. Christa is responsible for planning, scheduling, project accounting and overall office management including HR.
Growing up a native of Albuquerque, New Mexico—one of the most active art communities in the country—Christa has been making art, designing and crafting most of her life. When not at work, she makes jewelry, fiber sculptures, crochets, and volunteers for the Birdseed Collective, a non-profit that serves Denver’s urban community through arts, entrepreneurship and food programs. Most recently, Christa's creative endeavors have been gardening at her first home and teaching her dog, Baxter, to do tricks.
