Kristen Chidester

SoCal Marketing Director

Kristen brings more than 17 years of professional AEC experience to the marketing team at Level 10 Construction. Working for both architects and general contractors has given her a strong understanding of design and the built environment. Her past experience ranges from non-profit grant writing and event planning to business development and graphic/website design. This knowledge enables her to strategically respond to RFQs/RFPs with technical differentiators and persuasive narratives.

Gravitating toward marketing, graphic design, and brand cultivation, Kristen studied English and Digital Media at California State University of Sacramento. She is continually honing her marketing and communication skills to create solid brand identification, creative communications, targeted collateral, and strategic public relations campaigns -- all to encourage conversation and connectivity. Her passion for design and compelling content fuels her drive to create meaningful and innovative marketing products.

A member of SMPS since 2005, she is the current Board Treasurer of SMPS San Diego and has continued to grow partnerships and create solid AEC relationships. She was the recipient of the SMPS "Design of Merit Award" for the best AEC website in 2016. She continues to grow her network in California, connect with clients and partners; as well as learn more about AEC industry fluctuations and construction trends to better represent Level 10 in the marketplace.
