Today’s spotlight: Kristine Millar, CPSM


Orcutt | Winslow

Background: Millar has a passion for cultural advancement and how her firm can excel in creating dynamic relationships and engaging experiences for those she encounters in both her personal and professional spheres of influence.  As a Principal at Orcutt | Winslow with almost 30 years within the AEC industry she leads a national Creative Services studio and pushes for “bigger” ideas in experiential design, business development and marketing strategy.

Professional advice: “Buy yourself a cute helmet (I may or may not be kidding) and be flexible, so that you can be agile.  It is too easy to get caught up in the minutia,  and then,  one day, you look up and find out that you were so caught up an old idea that all of the good stuff hit you in the head while you weren’t paying attention.”

Lesson learned in 2020: “As a mom of eight, a wife, a sister, a daughter, a friend, a volunteer, and a professional, I have evangelized a story of PepsiCo’s CEO more times than I can count: She said (paraphrased) that work/life is a juggling act, not a balance.  It is impossible to balance everything. The reality is, that something will always be in the air while you are holding onto or attending to someone/thing else.  I have learned to give myself the freedom to juggle and the freedom to fail…and to know that I can’t do everything, even if I really, really want to.”

Surprising fact: “There was a period of time that I wanted to be Olivia Pope—she knew how to solve every mess, had the right words to say to any verbal tirade, and ate popcorn with red wine.  Instead, I am much more of a Lorelei Gilmore (according to my children) with a squirrel as my spirit animal.  I am good with that.”
