Coming from a family with a broad range of artistic talent, Whitney grew up with an appreciation for quality work, developing her own personal style. Positivity is her constant mindset, and the idea that she could create a positive environment for anyone and everyone led to the discovery that Interior Design is her calling. After being accepted into Michigan State University's Upper Division Design Program (CIDA accredited, ASID affiliated), she has since continued to set and achieve goals for herself to further her education and career. She became a LEED® Accredited Professional in 2008 and currently works as the sole Interior Designer for Kliment Halsband Architects in New York City.
Whitney specializes in Revit Architecture, Photoshop CS3, AutoCAD (including 20-20 CAP Studio), sketching, rendering (hand & digital), programming and research, schematic design, concept development, visual communication and presentation, and digital/darkroom photography.
She is also the author of the blog Cityclectic Design.
