Project Manager-- Design & Bids Supervisor

Kellie has over 10 years of experience in Project Management, with an early emphasis on Custom Residential homebuilding.

Shannon Ricketts

Shannon Ricketts

Project Coordinator and CAD Drafter

Shannon joined Tundra Design Group in 2015 after gaining experience designing residential and commercial custom millwork in the DC area. Seeing projects through from conceptual design to installation in a design-build environment allowed Shannon to realize the benefits of melding CAD Drafting with Project Coordination. Shannon earned her B.A. Architecture degree from the University of New Mexico in 2013 with design efforts in large and small-scale commercial developments. When not in the office making sure you have a great experience working with Tundra Design Group, you can find Shannon running, playing soccer, or under the waves as a certified S.C.U.B.A. Diver.
