My name is Florence. Currently, I work at an architectural firm in New York City as a Junior Project Architect/Designer role. Everyday is a learning process and there is always room for growth, independence, and I know in this long journey ahead of me there is always a bigger picture out there. Our job is not only to design spaces for people to adapt, but to design spaces for people to learn to love for them to inhabit.

I'm a graduate with a BFA in Interior Design. My field of study primarily focused on hospitality and healthcare. Working in the professional industry, I am able to expand my horizons into the Corporate and Commercial and even some High-End Residential design techniques. I've gained and have become more knowledgeable as I am now further in the field.
As I continue to move forward and grow, I know I will be able to learn and see a lot more that I have never saw before.
