INVISION is continuing our strategic effort to implement a long-term leadership development plan. Recently, the Board recognized members of the studio for their continued efforts in advancing our firm and demonstrating INVISION’s core values. As we pursue our goal of enriching the lives of those we touch, our core values outline our design passion, trustworthy relationship integrity, our commitment to knowledge and innovation, and our studio culture. This holistic vision for the sustained betterment of our firm is rooted in each of these individuals’ well-rounded professional sphere of influence.
Associates are the largest and most professionally diverse group of leaders in our firm. While their specific professional crafts vary, each associate consistently offers project and team leadership, while building leadership qualities in those around them. We are pleased to announce the following associates: Tonia Householder, Abbey Huppenbauer, Angie Nees, and Heidi Willis.
Joining INVISION in 2008, Tonia is a managing architect who leads the design process for many of our health care clients.
