Kimberly Corbett Oates ASTC


Kimberly’s introduction to the stage was as a young dancer, but it was the magical “dance” backstage that became her passion. Her technical and production background in theatre and music contributes to her understanding of how these spaces function for the people who call them home. Kimberly brings strong communication skills and attention to detail to her work planning and equipping performing arts spaces. She collaborates with architects, team members, and stakeholders to create functional facilities that serve their communities well into the future.

Kimberly continues to participate in the theatre community, working as a designer and technician. She is a member of USITT where she is active Commissioner of the Engineering Commission and in the Architecture Commission. Kimberly represents Schuler Shook on several ESTA Technical Standards Program working groups.
