Karen “KJ” Armstrong

Project Manager – Central NY, CPSI

Karen graduated from SUNY Cortland with a BA in sociology. After a few years she decided life as a social worker was too sedentary for her tastes. She missed recess. So she joined Parkitects in 2004 and within three years moved up within the organization from inside sales support to project manager. She loves collaborating with communities and schools to bring fun and challenging play experiences to their kids. She is also active with the NYS Recreation and Park Association. She often travels with Peri, the Playground Pup, by her side.

KJ volunteers with Shoot for a Cure, an organization that raises money for several health-affiliated charities, including the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and the National MS Society.
