Karina Santos Dayton

Associate AIA, MBA Senior Project Coordinator

Hello, I am Karina Santos Dayton. I have over 20 years of experience in the Architecture Design and Construction field. I had the great opportunity to be involved in projects ranging from Healthcare, Multi-family and Retail to Theme Park Design. I truly enjoy the design process to managing projects. One of my favorite areas of design is Healthcare in which I spent over seven years in.

I was born in the city of Santo Domingo and moved to New York as a child. Graduated from Parsons School of Design with a Bachelors in Architecture and Environmental Design. It was a privilege to start my architecture career working on various renovations on beautiful New York City landmarks. I later decided that moving to Florida would allow me an opportunity to get involved in a broader type of projects and of course also to enjoy our beautiful weather. A few years ago in my pursue to understand not just the design part but the business side of architecture, I decided to go for my Executive Masters in Business Administration from the University of Central Florida.

Personally, I am a proud mother of four. I have a blended family and wonderful husband. One of my hobbies is photography. We love to travel and having older children allows us to plan quick trips. Always looking for places to visit and explore, ready for the next adventure!
