Gillian Snell


Team Support Agent

Starting out as a temp in July 2022, Gillian officially joined the Schroeder Design Build Team in February 2023.

A bright and productive worker, Gillian came to us with extensive support staff experience working in the Fairfax County community and its public school system. She has dual degrees from the University of Mary Washington, a BA in Geography and MS Geospatial Analysis.

Responsible for keeping the “wheels running” behind the scenes, Gillian is often the cheery voice you will talk to when calling into the office. She also handles office maintenance, tech support, provides support to HR, the accounting department, marketing and executive management. Gillian helps coordinate company events, makes travel accommodations, and schedules meetings. When it comes to marketing, she’s boots on the ground–coordinating photo shoots, seminars, award submissions, client support, meetings, and much more.

True to her position, Gillian is known for her passion and commitment to helping others. She is the always positive, willing partner in supporting the Schroeder team ultimately ensuring client satisfaction.

When Gillian isn’t working, you’ll find her at Weird Brothers Coffee in Herndon, at the library, or at a roller skating rink.
