GreenbergFarrow, Columbus, OH, US, Architectural Designer III

At GreenbergFarrow, I have been fortunate to work with many retail clients: Jos. A. Bank, Men's Wearhouse, Levi's, Art Van, Michael's, Circle K, Stripes, DSW, Victoria's Secret/PINK, among others.
During my experience with Art Van, I was able to work closely with the client and assist with design initiatives. This carried over into producing drawings for the interior of the store. This experience as a whole was my first exposure to a project's start-to-finish process.

Valley Cleaners, Blacksburg, VA, US, Customer Service

During my time at Valley Cleaners, I received and delivered dry-cleaning orders in store and by delivery. I created tickets for clothing orders and bagged the orders after cleaning. Above all, my greatest responsibility during this employment period was customer service.
In past dry-cleaning positions, I have pressed shirts and gained the ability to work in multiple locations. Working for Valley Cleaners has enabled me to assist customers with 8 years worth of extensive dry-cleaning knowledge.

SFCS Inc, Roanoke, VA, US, Architectural Intern

At SFCS, I worked closely with one of the lead designers. I gained experience in the schematic design and master-planning processes, and I was given exposure to client relations during meetings.
My time and experience at SFCS, although brief, allowed me to greatly improve my knowledge of AutoCAD and SketchUp.
