Tevis has had several staff changes recently with Zach Sage joining our accounting staff in January and Jennifer Ortega joining our production team in February!
Jennifer came to us from Lickel Architecture and her talents and abilities have been a great addition to our staff. Her friendly personality and strong experience have made her a valuable asset to our team and she has fit in well in the midst of our rapid growth. We are proud to have her on board and look forward to utilizing her experience and expertise in our studio!
Zach and his company Sage Business Solutions partnered with our office in January to lead our accounting and payroll departments. He has helped us streamline our process and has filled a valuable and sometimes difficult position in our team structure. We very much value this partnership and have enjoyed everything Zach has brought to our leadership and staffing team.
We are also sad to announce the departure this month of Samantha Bodine. Sam joined Tevis Architects in 2013 immediately after graduation from Kansas State University. It became apparent quickly to everyone at Tevis, that Samantha was going to be a great fit. She not only learned amazingly fast, she is outgoing, offered great feedback on how to improve existing standards, is a great designer that we all grew to respect and who's opinion we greatly value, and most importantly, all our clients loved her. Normally when a young architect joins a firm for the first time, you expect her to learn from her older, more experienced peers. In Samantha’s case, I believe we learned just as much from her as she did from us. We are all disappointed to be losing her, but we know that she has a very bright future ahead of her. All of us here at Tevis wish her the very best.
