Brooklyn, NY, US



Hi, my name is Siena Yeby and I'm an interior design student at Pratt Institute. I'm passionate about sustainable design and am looking to be a part of a collaborative design team. My focus is always to innovate sustainable solutions that improve the quality of life for those that interact with the space. I believe that this goal is best met not individually, but as a team. My ability to take initiative and independently problem solve is as strong as my ability to communicate and collaborate with others happily.



Eco Supply Center, New York, NY, US, Intern

At Eco Supply Center I had the opportunity to communicate with architects, designers and contractors to coordinate material specifications. I also presented Eco Supply's line of sustainable building materials to architects and designers. Through this work I was able to learn about sustainable design and building strategies. I enjoyed auditing a Passive House Tradesperson course on sustainable building science, and have been able to incorporate the strategies I've learned into my current work.
