Michelle Wempe wrote this statement for the faculty and students of the Interior Architecture and Product Design (IAID) program at Kansas State University (KSU) and shared it with us. She is a Professor of Practice at KSU. She is also the Founder of zumaooh® and a Principal with Talentstar.

It’s my pleasure to welcome Brien McDaniel to the Talentstar braintrust of collaborators. Brien is, himself, like a gemstone — with a bright and sparkling personality as well as great depth of character, expertise, and resonance.

We happily spent Women’s History Month celebrating our colleagues who have greatly contributed to the A/E/C industry. They are pioneers — architects, engineers, designers, marketers, managers, and more — leaders and change-makers, as well as activists, mothers, sisters, daughters, and wives.
In continuation of #womenshistorymonth, we are shining a spotlight on our good friend and colleague, Katherine Bajor. She knows that work/life balance is a constant challenge for many of us throughout our careers. She also believes that you can have it all.
