Erica Mullins Named Notable Women in Construction & Design

BizTimes Media Spotlights Notable Women in Construction & Design

Erica Ostendorf Mullins is an award-winning interior designer that has been paving the way throughout her career, most recently becoming a Principal at Strang – the first woman and the first interior designer in Strang’s history! 

Being a designer at an integrated A/E firm has given her a platform to challenge traditional thinking. Since joining the leadership team, Erica has led firm-wide strategic planning that has not only afforded Strang with significant growth but furthered our efforts around creating a higher level of organization, structure, and accountability while maintaining growth projections. She is a lifetime learner that inspires other women and interior designers at our company to pursue leadership positions through her mentoring and guidance. 

Projects that Erica has worked on as an Interior Designer

Erica’s leadership abilities continue to grow as she is currently pursuing her MBA at UW-Milwaukee, setting the groundwork for broader knowledge in the AEIC industry. She uses her expertise to positively impact Strang, her team, women in business, and the community at large striving for educational discussions and encouraging others to advocate for themselves in the workplace.

Additionally, Erica has advocated for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at all levels and disciplines at Strang-a part of the construction/design industry which has historically lacked diversity. Her dedication has guided Strang to becoming a stronger, more inclusive organization.

Erica is also a continued supporter of Habitat for Humanity, with contributions through pro-bono design work, participating in frame-ups, and the yearly women’s build.
