‘Tis the Season of Giving Back

As 2018 is quickly coming to an end, it is a great time to reflect on all that we have accomplished. Schmidt Associates has had the pleasure of working with our clients on many impactful projects, but we are about more than just our work. This coming week, in particular, reminds us all how grateful […]

Q&A Session with Myrisha Colston

It seems like Myrisha Colston, Architectural Graduate, has worked here forever. Her smiling face has been a mainstay on the second floor for many years. Myrisha has interned or just helped around the office six or seven (who is really keeping track?) different stints through the years before graduating with her masters and landing at Schmidt […]

Q&A Session with Steve Schaecher

Q&A Session with Eddie Layton

But he hasn’t let the glory from his victory go to his head.     Tell me about yourself. I grew up in rural southern Virginia. […]

Q&A Session with Kevin Shelley

It’s a good thing we move desks so often at Schmidt Associates. If we didn’t, Kevin Shelley—Principal and Project Manager—might be covered in cobwebs! After completing an architectural internship at Schmidt Associates in the late 80s, Kevin has never looked back… or worked anywhere else!     Tell me about your background. I grew up […]

Q&A Session with Matt Durbin

Matt Durbin, Technology Designer and Information Systems (IS) Manager, has taken an interesting path to land where he is today.

Thank you!

Q&A Session with Ben Bain

Ben Bain, Business Development Representative, is definitely not cut out to be an undercover spy. Instead, he is an outgoing and friendly face often found traveling the state meeting new people.     Tell me about your background. I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and moved to Marietta, Ohio, in the middle of my sophomore […]
