Hi! My name is Melinda Cardenas and I am a 2018  graduate from California State University Northridge, with a degree in Interior Design. Growing up in Southern California, I developed a love for design and creativity from an early age. During my undergraduate years, I was able to hone my creative skills for interior design, and develop a passion for creating spaces.  For over two years, I have worked in the interior design field as a design assistant, junior designer, and project manager. I have developed skills for design, and hope to bring a passionate and creative outlook on every project I work on. Having worked on both residential and commercial spaces, I am excited to learn and grow in a variety of areas. I am excited to broaden my understanding of creating spaces that leave a better impact on the environment. 

I look forward to hearing from you!
