Donna Weiss, founder, has a Master’s of Science degree in historic preservation and a Bachelor’s of Science degree in interior architecture.  With nearly two decades of professional experience, she is involved through all phases of work on historic properties. Her primary responsibilities include project management, client relations, cost estimates, building pathology, condition assessments, interface with historic review entities, and repair treatment options.  Donna is interconnected with the network of regional preservation professionals, which is critical when pulling together project consultants and qualified contractors and seeking out solutions to atypical building materials and conditions.

Kate Bissen, preservation associate, assists in the project management and restoration of historic structures.  She earned a Bachelor's of Science in design from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, and a Master’s of Architecture from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Kate has more than ten years experience in architecture and historic preservation. She most enjoys digging through archives to uncover each building’s unique history. Her passion is using preservation as a way to honor that history while envisioning new possibilities for each structure she works on. Kate also enjoys every opportunity to get outside, reading a book in one of Milwaukee’s fantastic parks or exploring the urban landscape with her toddler in tow.
