While the guys of Bren-Mar regularly make the rounds to jobsites and meetings with clients, behind the scenes are a couple ladies helping make their jobs easier – wherever they may be. You’ve likely spoken to but perhaps never seen Devon or Erica. These ladies are like the Superwoman of Bren-Mar, rarely seen but always at the ready.
While Devon handles more day-to-day things around the office than we’d care to admit, Erica works from afar in our affectionately referred to Bren-Ver satellite location in Colorado. And when they’re not busy working, both of these gals love to spend time enjoying their families and the outdoors.
Devon is a sucker for a beautiful garden and has been known to make day trips to Midland or Grand Rapids to enjoy the peaceful serenity of Dow Gardens and Meijer Gardens. While she maintains that her own garden is quite modest, we’ve heard that it has it’s own pond so we do have our doubts. She is also brightening the office with it’s bounty all spring and summer, which we truly enjoy! And if she’s not at the garden you might find her on the shores of Lake Michigan. Having grown up North of Muskegon she just can’t resist those expansive beaches and cool blue waves, no matter the season. And who could blame her, really? We love the lake too!
While she misses the abundance of beautiful lakes, large and small, that Michigan offers, Erica has been embracing what water she is able to find out in Colorado. Trout fishing in small mountain lakes and hiking along rivers. While the scenery is a bit different, it is equally beautiful in it’s own regard. She has enjoyed exploring new towns and has found Golden to be a favorite, and not for the reason you might think -cough, Coors Brewery, cough-. The town is home to Clear Creek History Park which has it’s very own chickens that kids, adults and dogs love to stop by and visit!
