Jana Couron Retiring

Please join us in congratulating our very own Jana Couron on her retirement from Milbrandt, after 25 years of hard work and dedication to the company.

Jana could often be known as the face of Milbrandt, as she sat at the front and greeted everyone who entered into the office!  Her laugh and and smile were quite favorited among many Milbrandt employees, in addition to the fact that she always made sure that all designers and architects at the firm were well taken care of.  This resulted in better care and attention to detail for our clients as well.  We cannot even begin to thank Jana enough for all that she has done for this company.  She has seen Milbrandt through it all, the moves, past retirements, and new principals, Jana has been there – keeping all the floating pieces together for the most cohesive work environment.

Jana will now be spending her well deserved free time as a wine tasting bar tender!  She will be putting her love of wine to good use, and we could not be more excited for her!

We wish Jana nothing but the best in her future endeavors, she will be greatly missed!
