Tenille and I sit down to talk about her career in the AEC industry and her new podcast Death by Architecture.
Tenille Bettenhausen is a business developer serving the Los Angeles market for the American Institute of Steel Construction. She earned her BS degree in Architecture from Arizona State University in 2000. After graduation, Tenille started her career in architecture at various local Orange County firms, where she worked on a wide variety of projects including design rollout projects for Nordstrom, Washington Mutual Bank and various healthcare projects. She has 18 years of previous experience as an architectural project designer, project engineer in construction, and for the last four years, has been the Business Development Manager for a local architecture firm. She is heavily involved in her local chapter of the AIA and is currently the co-chair for the Women in Architecture committee. Tenille is also a podcaster for her new show Death By Architecture, a podcast that marries her two loves of design and true crime. Using her other passions of marketing and building design, she finds business development and relationship building of the utmost importance and is also what makes her a great marketer (marketeer).
