Welcome to Hoefer Welker!
This week in our Kansas City office, we are welcoming four new employees to the Hoefer Welker team. That means we are having a #FlashbackFriday to our #WelcomeWednesday!
Jonathan Crookham, an architectural intern from University of Kansas, will be with us for the next seven months. He is interested in health and wellness, and feels like Hoefer Welker is an opportunity to learn from people with a lot of experience. Johnathan is in his fifth year at KU, and is from Houston, Texas. He enjoys Soccer, eating Tex-Mex, and is the youngest of 4 siblings.
Taylor Liles is from the University of Kansas, and is in her second year of graduate school. She is originally from Kansas City, and when she is not working she enjoys traveling and running (this girl ran a half marathon this year!). Taylor is really excited to be at Hoefer Welker because she can “gain exposure to many different project types.” But she also loves the people here as well. She claims:“I am excited about the friendly and fun culture in the office.”
Michaela Hoefer is an architectural intern from the University of Kansas, and she is in her fourth year of school. This will be Michaela’s second year with us, but when she is not in the studio Michaela is either spending time with her cats or listening to music, taking photos, or watching Netflix. Michaela has grown up around architecture (hint hint look at the last name people!) and chose Hoefer Welker because “The boss is really awesome and I love it here.”
The interns will gain hands on experience working alongside the full time architects in our firm to work on projects that are creative and exciting that live up to the Hoefer Welker name. We are excited to have these individuals in our office, and we cannot wait to see what awesome ideas they bring to the table!
We also need to welcome a new full-time team member, Scott Johnson. Scott just graduated with a Master’s degree in architecture from University of Nebraska. Scott has fun golfing, watching Cubs baseball, cooking, and his favorite food is extra cheesy pizza. He has worked for a few firms in Nebraska before officially deciding on Hoefer Welker. He claims he ultimately chose to work at Hoefer Welker “because I wanted to work at a firm with a wide range of projects and have an opportunity to work on healthcare projects.” With Scott’s interest in healthcare design and sustainability, and Hoefer Welker’s dedication to healthcare design and architecture, it’s clear that together they are going to create a perfect match.
