NAME: Roger Kenney
BIO: Growing up in the construction industry, Roger realized
early on that his interests lie in the design side of the business
rather than the construction. After 5 years of building experience
in Colorado he left for California to obtain his license. When he
is not found adding on to his compound we refer to as "Almosta
Farm", he can be found hunting some field with his dogs Belle & murphy.
Architect, LEED AP
NAME: Kris Lee
BIO: Kris is a Colorado native and received a Masters Degree
in Architecture after studying at Montana State University and in
Europe. After working construction he has been working with Kenney
and Associates since 2000. Kris enjoys the outdoors and water skiing,
and if he's not hanging out with his wife and their two dogs, you'll
probably find him tinkering under one of his cars.
Architect, LEED AP
NAME: Walt Gantt
BIO: For several years Walt resided in California and Arizona
where he developed his architecture skills. A vacation to Colorado
in 1993 proved to be long term as he would never return. A Colorado
native and also known as "Wally", he has worked for Roger
Kenney continuously since that alleged vacation. Walt's favorite
activities other than architecture include wake boarding, boating,
snowmobiling, and the occasional golf outing.
NAME: Mario Gomez
BIO: Mario was born and raised in El Salvador before moving
to California in 1979. He has been involved in the field of architecture
since 1989, studying at school, working for an engineering firm,
an architectural firm, and in construction. He served for 8 years
in the U.S. Naval construction battalion 40 with the SeaBee's, then
made the move to Colorado in 1999 after being honorably discharged.
He started working at K&A in 2004. A fluent speaker of Spanish,
he enjoys playing and watching soccer and spends his free time at
home playing with and helping his wife raise three little girls.
NAME: Betsie Paulus
BIO: Betsie is pretty much a Colorado Native. She attended Loveland schools and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in
Business Marketing from the University of Northern Colorado. After working in the larger business sector for
years she decided a change was needed. The opportunity to work for a smaller firm, with more flexible hours,
has been a good fit with her busy lifestyle. She enjoys spending time with her husband, Mike, and her fourteen
year-old daughter, Jordan. In her free time (what free time….did I mention I have a teenager?) she enjoys skiing,
fitness instructing and playing tennis.
Firm Dogs "Belle and Murphy"
NAME: Belle & MurphyMurphy has been with Kenney & Associates since 2010
and started when he was just 8 weeks old. Growing up in a Kudos
box under Roger's desk, he has developed into the firm greeter.
Murphy has also grown into a great bird hunter following in the tradition
of his bloodlines and also his great uncle Eli.
Belle is a rescued foreclosure dog and also Murphy's protégée. Roger found her at the Lab Rescue
and brought her back so that she can now learn to greet clients and chase pheasant.
