My background spans from residential and commercial construction to computer aided drafting and design, I enjoy building relationships with clients and vendors and wearing multiple hats at Emily Handke Design. On a personal level I'm married and have been blessed with 4 beautiful daughters. My passion for residential construction and design has led my family to move many times as we renovate homes and then sell them. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, watching movies in our theater, attending gymnastics meets, visiting my oldest daughter at Purdue, and hosting friends in our home. In the office you can typically find me working away 3D modeling our homes in Revit and Lumion. I love that no two homes are the same!

HI EVERYONE, I'M ANDREW! I started out studying at iupui and ivy tech. I ultimately achieved my degree in architectural technology. technical drafting was always an interest of mine, so i was excited to blend the two together to further
my career!


My husband and I recently just bought our first home in 2022. We closed right before Christmas, quite the Christmas gift for sure! We bought a 1953 ranch that just happens to be a full renovation project. Along with having the adventure of a new home, I have two rescue pups, Finn and Missy, who are living their best lives. They keep me on my toes. We love spending summer nights at the dog park and getting snow cones in Broad Ripple! In my free time, I love trying new foods and spending the nights on the patio with friends! My position at Emily Handke Design is Social Media and Marketing Coordinator. What I enjoy most about my job is learning a new way to market and interact with a different audience. I have also loved watching how Emily puts so much thought into each design for her clients when designing their forever home! 

HI EVERYONE, I'M katherine! I studied at Taylor University, my degree was geared toward business with a focus on entrepreneurship. I have been able to successfully run a wedding photography service for 7+ years. I recently became a real estate agent serving all of Indy.

I started school at St. Pius X, moved on to Cathedral High School, and ultimately ended up at Washington University in St. Louis for Architecture. If you know me from growing up you probably know me by my maiden name, Emily Treece. I always knew I wanted to do something to take my Architecture degree and utilize it in a more personal way to connect with people. As it turns out, designing a client's dream home is exactly what I was looking for. I think travel is the best way to gain exposure to new design ideas and help me think outside of the box. I've been to all 50 states and traveled to 19 countries thus far! I've used inspiration from my travels to design custom doors from Paris to luxury hotels in the Caribbean. In my free time you will find me on bike rides, trying out new restaurants, wine tasting, and spending time with my family. My dessert of choice is pretty much anything with cookie dough, my wedding cake was even a cookie dough cake!
