Synde and her family are transplants to Idaho thanks to a college tour in 2015. They decided as a family to pack up and become Idahoans as quickly as possible. Now, with two sons wearing blue and orange, Synde and her husband Chad plan to retire in this great state. Synde considers herself a jane-of-all-trades. From teaching special and adapted physical education to sales in the high-tech industry, owning a scrapbooking store in Colorado to making teeth in a dental lab, she likes the challenges of new projects. The quote “not my circus, not my monkeys” is a favorite. However, life at erstad ARCHITECTS has proved that she IS one of the monkeys in this circus and she couldn’t be happier.
