Schemata Staff Expands to Seven

Things are picking up here, and we are pleased to announce the addition of two new staff members, bringing our total to seven (a pretty special number to many -- including us!). [caption id="attachment_965" align="alignnone" width="700" caption="Katherine (L) and Domonique (R)"][/caption]

Katherine is one of the two newest members of the Schemata Workshop team. She has gained professional experience in Seattle at Craft Architects, Coates Design, and Sclater Partners Architects. She grew up camping in the Black Hills of South Dakota, then skiing in Montana while she earned a Master of Architecture degree. Now she enjoys all the camping, hiking, fishing, and clam digging that Washington State has to offer.

Katherine has a passion for enriching lives through architecture and seeks inspiration from the user for all design decisions.  She takes pride in her ability to work diligently to meet deadlines and strives to exceed expectations. She is currently studying for the architect registration exam. When she is not studying or in the office you will find Katherine running around Capitol Hill with her boxer puppy.

Domonique is the new Office Manager at Schemata Workshop, and  brings ten years of administration expertise. Her experience includes working in the architectural, non-profit, insurance, and construction fields.  She grew up in the Northwest, and received her Economics degree from the University of Washington.  In addition to supporting the Schemata Workshop team Domonique started a small business, Edible Dirt, where she provides urban citizens the coaching, inspiration, and community support to start growing their own produce.

Rain or shine Domonique can probably be found outside training for some kind of endurance race. She finished her first half Ironman last summer and is working towards her goal of an Ironman in 2012. In the meantime she is headed to Zürich in April for her second marathon.  After a long day Domonique can be found curled on the couch with her favorite buddy, a Portuguese Water Dog puppy named Goose.
