People | Welcome Chris, Shanna, and Brad!

July Welcome


At Bailey Edward, new talent is the fresh flour that is so crucial for a sourdough starter to be put to its best use. Mixed with our existing starter that has had time to ferment and develop knowledge and experience, Chris, Shanna, and Brad are sure to help us create our most delicious loafs yet!

Say hello to Chris Dowse who joins us as an Electrical Engineer at the Fox River Grove office! Chris comes to us with over 25 years’ experience, developing an expertise in the design of hospital, laboratory, cogeneration plants, and industrial projects. Not only does Chris have a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from California National University, but he also holds a Bachelor of ARts from Concordia University in River Forest, Illinois. When he’s not in the office, you can find Chris waxing philosophical about the state of live theater as he rides his Dahon folding bike.

Architect Shanna Fish joins the Champaign Office with over 17 years’ experience in the field designing commercial, retail, education, healthcare, and government spaces. She received her B.S. in Architectural Studies from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where she was and continues to be a proud member of the Orange Krush, having been a men’s basketball season ticket holder since she was student. Not just a fan of sports, Shanna is a retired Roller Derby skater and volunteers with the Special Olympics. Shanna also enjoys music--if you’re looking for an experienced flutist for your band, be sure to reach out!

Last but not least, Brad Model joins us as a summer intern at the Fox River Grove office. He is currently a student at the University of Iowa State in Ames working towards a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Brad loves to play and watch sports of all kinds, but in the current COVID climate, you may be more likely to find him out fishing when he’s not in the office.

Please welcome Chris, Shanna, and Brad to the Bailey Edward team!
