Hi.My name is Claudia Zelaya, I am currently studying business with an emphasis in marketing at Cal state Dominguez hills. I have a passion for interior design and enjoy creating new design visions for residential and commercial spaces. I graduated from FIDM where we completed projects that consisted of designing commercial spaces and residential spaces in a matter of 9 weeks. These projects included complete design boards, floor plans, and 300 pages of specified materials that had to abide by commercial codes for commercial spaces. I work at Pottery Barn where not only do we get to help customers design their homes with in-store and in-home consultations but as well as setting up the designs for the sales floor. Assisting others is something I’m compassionate about, getting to see ones reaction after completing a great design in their living space is one of the most fulfilling moments when designing.
