Who We Are

WHO WE ARE

Architecture Firm

Founded in 1978 as Erickson Schulz Architects, our firm was established to bring superior architectural designs of a modest scope to Nebraska. In 1991, Scott Sullivan, AIA, became a principal, at which time our company name changed to Erickson Sullivan Architects. Since then, we have grown into a medium-sized architectural corporation, expanding beyond Nebraska, and now licensed to practice in Kansas, Iowa, Missouri, Colorado, and Florida.

Furthermore, in conjunction with Dave Erickson’s retirement, we proudly announced Jennifer Rohn and Trevor Hull as partners and associate principals in 2021. Their 20+ years of experience, success, and commitment have been invaluable to Erickson Sullivan Architects’ portfolio development.

She and her husband, Curt, have a furbaby, a sheepadoodle, named Jarvis.

Fun fact: When Jen was eight years old, she wanted to be a dolphin trainer and sell Tupperware as a side hustle. Sidenote, the fun facts were added to the website so she could share this tidbit about herself.

Trevor Hull

Katherine enjoys cycling, thrift shopping, and can always be found with an iced coffee in-hand. When she is not working, she’s playing and cuddling with her two dogs, Kora and Ezra.
