It’s not enough for A&E to have the finest designers. To keep clients and contractors happy, our operations have to run smoothly. And that’s where Mina comes in. For her, even the process of getting hired was a study in efficiency, from the dozens of arrangements she made for day care, to the perfectly timed 1200-mile car trip she took for her A&E interview. Mina and her husband still live near their families’ ranches in the foothills of Montana’s Crazy Mountains, and still enjoy ranching, along with skiing, dancing, and playing the piano.
