I was lucky enough to find my passion for interior design and entrepreneurship at age nine and from there I experienced and created opportunities to learn about and immerse myself into the field.

What’s your favorite food and why?

My favorite food is definitely Japanese food…anything from sushi, to chicken dumplings, to ramen.

Tell me about your favorite hobby.

My favorite hobby would have to be health and fitness. I love self-care, healthy cooking, and working out.

How did you hear about Element and what was one thing that stood out to you about the company?

I heard about Element from meeting Caleigh at the Wentworth Career Fair and what stood out to me was the inviting company culture and the spectrum of work the firm produces.

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would you go, why, and who would you take with you? 

I have wanted to go on a girl’s trip to Italy for years because I am amazed by the architectural history and obsessed with the Italian fashion.

Who are you interning under, what do they have you do, and out of all your responsibilities, which is your favorite/most interesting?

I am interning under Laura and Alina carrying out several different tasks that require both technical and creative skills in Adobe Suite, Sketchup rendering, and the materials library. William and Nate have also given me side projects such as furnishing the client/cigar lounge and graphic designing for branding projects (example below). I love being able to do a variety of things because I learn something new from each task as I sharpen my technical skills.
