Antidote One

Ep.016- Scott Wallenhorst, AIA - The Power of Good Mentors
Episode 016 of the Antidote One Podcast was a "proud poppa" moment for me. I interviewed Scott Wallenhorst, AIA who is a friend and also a graduate of the Architect Accelerator coaching program.   Scott shares his journey of seeking licensure and finding the "right firm" to work for throughout his career. His path is not uncommon to most of us. Seeking mentorship along the way and guidance that seems to elude all young architects at times.   I selfishly must say that I am proud of all that Scott has recently achieved and I look forward to seeing what he will do next.
