Lafayette, Indiana

I am from Evansville, IN, and started my college career in nursing at the University of Southern Indiana. I quickly realized nursing was not for me. What was for me was studying something I always considered a hobby: interior design. After finding a program that fit my interests, I transferred to Purdue University within two weeks of classes starting in the Fall of 2007. There I gained basic skills in drawing and hand-rendering, space planning, building codes, and multiple design computer programs to complete entire design projects. During the summer of 2010, I completed two internships, one with the architect for the University of Southern Indiana and the other with a commercial interior design firm, Y Factor Studio. I recently got married on January 1, 2011, graduated from Purdue in May of 2011, and I am still living in Lafayette, Indiana.
