it was time to get a little messy with it. She started working at the
construction and interior modeling company owned by her boyfriend’s
father in Fairfax, Va. And she actually does the manual labor on everything
from flooring to walls, painting, and even electrical and plumbing work.
“I know I don’t look like it, but I do,” she said with a laugh. “I
always get two reactions: ‘Who is she?!’ and ‘Girl, you’re stronger
than I thought.’”
Before that, she was obtaining her associate’s degree at Northern
Virginia Community College (NOVA). There she realized that design
involves far more than just interior decorating when she dove into such
subjects as schematics and programming, while learning Autocad,
Revit, and Photoshop. She continued these studies after transferring to
Marymount in 2013. Now that she’s established a good foundation in the
creative side of design, she’s looking forward to the fall where she’ll take
part in a business procedures class to get acclimated with that aspect.
But more than anything, she’s ready for this—her first internship,
where she’ll get to apply everything she’s already learned to an actual
job with an A&D firm.
