Misty Raatz
Project Manager

With 25 years of experience, Misty has focused much of her professional career on the design of new educational facilities as well as renovation work for school districts. Her talents and knowledge of Pre-K-12 facility design allows her to successfully provide design visioning and establish project goals with the client and project team. Misty understands all aspects of a project, ranging from pre-programming assistance, design development, construction document development to project close-out and celebration. Misty understands the importance of communication to establish “shared meaning” in order to ensure successful outcomes and meet expectations. She is a key expert in school projects for OHM Advisors and approaches complex problems with enthusiasm and a “can do” attitude. Her portfolio includes projects in countless small and large school districts.

Misty has served as a project manager and program manager on educational facilities and municipal projects throughout Michigan and neighboring states, and has gained a high level of experience with leading teams with various types of community and specialty facilities. Additionally, she has actively worked with local and state governing agencies. This working relationship has created a strong knowledge of codes, interpretation of those codes, and an understanding of how the various codes align with the overall project design intent.
