As an interior designer with a Bachelor of Science, I am seeking to excel in the profession with a dynamic company. During my studies at Philadelphia University, I was a varsity athlete and 2012 Dad Vail Bronze medalist of the women’s rowing team, maintaining a 3.8 GPA. I have a strong passion for developing a concept and implementing them into a final design project. As a member of the Network of Executive Women in Hospitality (NEWH), a non-profit organization that connects the hospitality design industry worldwide, I reach out and serve my local community through various projects and help deserving students, through educational developments. I have studied abroad in Milan, Italy and travelled throughout Europe, learning and reinforcing my appreciation for architectural styles.
I am currently an interior designer at Daroff Design, an internationally recognized hospitality design firm. Under the leadership of Karen Daroff and DB Kim, I have learned countless design techniques and skills towards design development. I am involved with every step of the design process, from initial proposals to writing specifications. I develop proposal boards through Photoshop based on regional and conceptual ideas for clients. I create movies and powerpoint presentations for clients to review and accept. In addition, I work effieciently in AutoCad to draft digital documents, select materials and furniture, create finish boards both physically and digitally, and render elevations and plans. Some of the many projects I have worked on, include the following: Louie's Modern, an upcoming restaurant chain in Sarasota, FL; Marriot's hotels in Shijiazhuang and Harbin, China; NBC Universal's Cabana Bay Resort in Orlando, FL; the Comcast Center in Philadelphia, PA; and Hotel Dupoint in Wilmington, DE. Through Daroff Design, I have gained exceptional knowledge in the interior design industry.

You may also contact Alexander Messinger, a profound architect and professor at Philadelphia University, by email (MessingerA@philau.edu) for further recommendation. I value learning and spending the time and effort it takes to success. If you agree that I would make a valuable addition to your firm, please feel free to contact me by phone at (267)-278-6766 or email at email@example.com. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to meeting with you.

NEWH Scholarship Recipient 2011-2012, Scholarship
The NEWH By-laws state one of the objectives of NEWH is to promote scholarship, education and interest in the Hospitality Industry and related fields. To that end, each chapter is tasked with fundraising to provide scholarship dollars for eligible students wishing to enter the Hospitality Industry.
NEWH chapters award scholarships annually based upon the following criteria:
Must have completed half the requirements for a degree or certification program in which enrolled
Must have real financial need
Must have at least a 3.0 G.P.A.
Must have a career objective in the Hospitality Industry (i.e., Hotel/Restaurant Management, Culinary, Food Service, Architecture, Design, etc.)
Each chapter compiles a list of eligible schools to which they will offer scholarship assistance. Usually these schools are in the geographical area of the chapter. An eligible school is defined as accredited and one that will hold the scholarship moneys in trust for the student to draw down upon on an “as needed” basis.
Applications for scholarships will be sent to the school and returned to each chapter’s scholarship committee for review and selection.
Each chapter will award scholarships based on the financial ability of the chapter to fund such scholarship awards. Eligible schools include community colleges, or their equivalents, and the Baccalaureate College and are for students majoring in the Hospitality, Foodservice or related fields.
