Muller & Muller, Ltd. (M2)
Stephanie Schachtrup Coad works on building projects for transportation, education, recreation and municipalities. Her duties include project management, business development, design and marketing.
When Stephanie returned to her hometown from Chicago with her family, she found a way to do what she always wanted to do: practice at the intersection of structural engineering and architecture with a woman-owned architecture firm. At M2, located in downtown Peoria Heights, she has worked on projects at CityLink and at the Sangamon County Transportation Hub in Springfield.
Outside work, she volunteers at St. Thomas Parish and School, where she serves as a Parish Council member, soccer coach, and website manager. When her cousin was diagnosed with leukemia, she became a regular blood donor for Red Cross. When most people stayed home during the pandemic, she rolled up her sleeves, recruited her mom, and both volunteered at the Peoria City/County Health Department administering COVID-19 vaccines.
