About 

I am a graduate of Parsons The New School for Design interior design division. From May 2013-November 2013 I interned with Fawn Galli Interiors where I handled a myriad of different responsibilities including sourcing fabrics, furniture, fixtures, and finishes, overseeing sub-contractors, placing and processing purchase orders, assisting with installations, and photo shoots, developing schemes, etc.; I am thrilled about my new new career path and have already learned a great deal about working in the field. I have excellent presentation and administrative skills, am extremely organized, a self-starter and highly motivated. I work well with others as well as being comfortable with individual responsibility.; I love interior design and am anxious to obtain a full-time position in the industry..
