“For over thirty years SCB has seen great success along the East Coast which led us to opening our Boston office. We are extremely excited Kristen has joined our team to help us grow and drive our evolving life sciences practice here in Boston, and beyond,” said Clara Wineberg, Principal and leader of SCB’s East Coast practice. “Kristen’s extensive knowledge of the sectors in which we work, along with her future-looking vision and keen design sense, have already made her an excellent addition to our team. We look forward to working together as we expand our portfolio in Boston and across the region.”  

“The opportunity to join SCB’s growing Boston office was an easy one to pursue,” says Kristen O’Gorman. “I have long admired the design and quality of the work that SCB does, along with the breadth of the firm’s expertise, and am eager to work with the team to continue forging an already-impressive East Coast portfolio. This is a once-in-a-career opportunity to help drive SCB’s life science sector in a city teeming with innovation, research, and growth. I’m excited to use my experience to help foster new connections and work on projects that will define Boston and the surrounding region for generations.”
