Introduction

I am a graduate of Western Michigan University with a BS in Interior Design with a minor in General Business. Through my academic career I have been able to complete projects in corporate, health care, residential, educational, and non-profit sectors. My internship at TMP focused on K-12 educational projects. I also had the opportunity to participate in two ASID charettes featuring a retail project and residential project as well as an NCIDQ design charette.I am a hard-working individual eager to learn and gain experience in all fields related to design. I am a self-starter who can work individually or in a team, collaborative environment in a timely and efficient manner.In the future I look forward to taking the NCIDQ exam to become a certified Interior Designer and becoming a LEED accredited professional.
