I achieved my masters degree in architecture in addition to a double minor in structural engineering and art & architectural history in 2009 from Roger Williams University.  I have since worked in an interior design office where I gain valuable experience and learned a lot about my profession.   Since being laid off in 2010, I have worked in a graphic design office and competed in numerous design competitions so I could continue to practice my skill.
