Bluffton, SC, US



I am a recent graduate from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville with my Bachelor of Science in  Interior Design.  I am currently looking for my first step into the design world, post-college.  I am a hard worker and have unique experience in the design world that most recent graduates do not offer.  During my four years of college I helped with the CIDA reaccreditation exhibit, worked as an administrative assistant in the College of Architecture and Design for nearly two years, had a summer internship, and was part of several major committees with The University of Tennessee.  I am most interested in Commercial, Higher Education, Mixed Use and/or Cultural Design, but would love any opportunity back into the design world.  I have a creative flair in material choices and highly skilled in Revit, 3D Studio Max, and AutoCAD.
