University of Georgia, Athens, GA, US, Bachelors, Interior Design, Anthropology

I was a double major in Anthropology and Interior Design. My focus in Anthropology was namely social/cultural behaviors with a focus on culinary traditions. This focus helps inform my design work in my ability to successfully research client behaviors and execute plans which support their individual behaviors. My two passions were developed further during my study abroad experience which was based in Cortona, Italy. While I was in college I was a member of the varsity equestrian team and during my time on the team we won Nationals three times and won the SEC championship twice. I was also a student member of ASID, the Anthropology club, Student Athlete Advisory Committee, and a Phi Beta Psi Honors Fraternity.
