About 

My name is Kimberly Cook. I will graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interior Design from Michigan State University this May. People describe me as professional, creative, upbeat, ambitious, particularly hard working and organized. I have passion for my studies and work and strive to be one step ahead. I provide a fresh perspective and an open mind.

I am ready to use my education and to grow at a firm full-time. I have had 2 internships during my upper-level college education. The first was a summer spent at F. Schumacher and Co. I developed my communication skills by facilitating sales and working closely with co-workers on-site and by telephone. The second was a yearlong internship with Pace Howe Design developing my time management and software skills.

Once meeting me, I will prove that I am experienced in communication and interpersonal skills, that my graphic program efficiency is entirely up to date, and that I can completely manage a project throughout all phases of design and construction.  I hope you’ll consider me as a potential asset to your company.
