My name is Holly Holstrom and I am currently a senior at the University of Cincinnati, majoring in Interior Design. I will be graduating from the program at the end of April 2013. I have been actively participating in the Co-Op Program, alternating quarters of college study with quarters of work in the field of Interior Design. I have interned at a variety of firms in multiple locations, and am looking for my next opportunity!
