After receiving Bachelor Degrees in Industrial Design and Building Science from Appalachian State University, Jeff Schmidt joined MHAworks in January of 2008. MHAworks has allowed Jeff to broaden his knowledge of architecture and design through the range of building types he has been involved with, including educational, commercial, religious, institutional, healthcare, and life safety. Jeff enjoys working with the many architects and project managers as they share their expertise and experience at both the office and in the field. When he is not in the office, Jeff enjoys spending time with his wife and two children. Some of his favorite outdoor recreation activities include running marathons, biking, and spending time at the beach. In his spare time, Jeff also continues to nurture his creative side by designing and building custom furniture. MHAworks relies on Jeff’s expertise and strength to change the office water cooler.
