About 

I am a student in my last year of earning my Bachelors of Science degree in Interior Design. I have done some Design Consulting on projects on my own for residential, a church and currently a beauty salon. I would like to work a Design Assistant or  as an  A+D Representative and I am open to work for an Interior Design Firm administratively (front desk, maintaining library, etc...)l. I prefer to work in a design environment where I can continue to learn, grow, and promote within the same firm.
