Ashley Thomas, Project Manager / Procurement Specialist

Ashley is a hardworking, Midwestern native who moved to Bozeman, Montana from St. Paul, Minnesota over 10 years ago. She studied Family and Consumer Science at Montana State University and proceeded to work in the non-profit arena. In her free time, Ashley was styling and shopping for people who crossed her path and became encouraged to steer herself into a more creative direction of helping others. Passionate about textiles and fashion, Ashley soon discovered the way to combine her love of people and creative spirit by diving into the business of building beautiful surroundings though the art of interior design. She has vast experience working with clients, vendors, contractors, builders and architects to create and present aesthetically superior interiors. When Ashley is not found delving into her work, she can be found still taking friends shopping, drinking coffee, continuing to study design and mastering her eye for quality furnishings and textiles, playing guitar and spending time outdoors with her golden retriever, family and friends.


Seyem Lampard, Office Manager

Seyem graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley. She then furthered her studies at Rudolph Schaeffer School of Design in San Francisco. All aspects of design and esthetics, be it interiors, gardens, photography, fabrics, graphics or architecture have played an integral part of her personal and professional life.

Seyem moved to Montana in 1993 “temporarily,” knowing it would be a good place to raise her two sons, and then she was going to move on to a bigger city. She has lived in 6 countries including Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Switzerland, Thailand and the United States and travels enthusiastically and extensively, but there is something about the people, culture and grandeur of the Treasure State that pulls at the heart. Montana is her forever home.

Colleen Freiburger

Colleen Freiburger, Associate Interior Designer

Colleen is a recent graduate with honors from Montana State University, with a Bachelors of Art in Environmental Design. Originally from Central Indiana and a self-titled “girly tomboy” she was attracted to the west after many family vacations in the Rockies. In the fall of 2014 she packed up her Ford Bronco (straight OJ edition) and moved to Bozeman, Montana. Having grown up with a brother and many boy cousins exploring the outdoors, hunting and occasionally fishing, she fit right in with the Montana lifestyle, quickly adding skiing and rock climbing to her list of hobbies and interests. As a result of studying architecture at MSU she realized her math strengths and design esthetic were best suited for a career as an interior designer. She was fortunate to be hired as a design intern for Envi Design while still in school, and after observing her work ethic, organization skills and design capabilities, Envi hired her as an Associate Interior Designer. She is thrilled to be back and further her professional career while working with such a talented group of extraordinary designers.

Kelsey Visser

Kelsey Visser, Associate Interior Designer

Kelsey graduated from Oregon State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design. After graduation she moved to Portland where she began her career in custom cabinetry design. She has been in the design field for five years and has specialized in project management, organization and space planning. She loved her years on the West Coast but always felt the tug to come home to Bozeman where she was born and raised. Much has changed in her hometown since she’s been gone but the joy of being close to childhood friends, a close "roots of the Gallatin Valley" family, the mountains, rivers and wide-open spaces of her heritage cannot be matched. When she isn’t designing interior spaces, she will opt outside to be around a campfire, at the lake or a rodeo and will be trying to catch up on all the horse rides she’s missed over the years. Kelsey is happy to become a part of the design community here in Bozeman and looks forward to where the next adventure might take her.

Diane Black

Diane Black, Finance Manager

Diane graduated with a bachelors’ degree in business from Miami University, Oxford, Ohio and earned her Masters in Business Administration from DePaul University, Chicago, Illinois. Diane and her family moved to Bozeman in 2015 after visiting for 20 years – deciding it was better to live in Bozeman and visit Chicago, than vice versa. Diane is happy to have found a place at Envi where she can use her finance background and work with super creative people. When not crunching numbers, Diane is outside running, hiking, gardening, and skiing.


Tucker, Chief Pawficer

Tucker joined the Envi Team in the spring of 2018. The prior year he lived in San Francisco, but had a hard time adjusting to city living. He kept dreaming of the wide open spaces where he’d been born. Tucker grew up on a ranch. His main job was chasing gophers. His area of expertise at Envi is flooring and snoring. He is a wheaton colored Scottish Terrier, super chill, and smiles when he is especially happy. It’s a “ruff” life.
