I am a commercial interior designer with a strong working knowledge of furniture, finishes, and designer resources. Having earned a BS in Interior Design at the Art Institute of Los Angeles, I continue to hone my expertise as a cross-disciplinary interior designer. My four years at Gensler have awarded me the opportunity to work as a librarian assistant and grow into a skilled interior designer who can work on every phase of a project.

As a motivated and passionate designer, I seek to expand my professional knowledge and contribution to the design industry by collaborating on project teams and learning from seasoned designers. My attention to detail and knowledge of resources will be an asset to any firm, and I am eager to develop my skills in all phases of project delivery from concept to project closeout.

Skilled in AutoCAD, Revit, Enscape, Photoshop, and Indesign.
Currently working towards an NCIDQ certification.
