Interior Designer for Huntsman Group
Alumna: Heather Self
Position: Interior Designer
Employer: Huntsman Architecture Group
My responsibilities include site verification, area calculations, space planning and creating construction documents. I also make material selections, LEED submittals and renderings, and perform construction administration. I generally work in teams of 2-5 people to achieve many goals.
"Get involved in your industry as much as you can and utilize the networking tools around you." I participated in all types of internships from working in the materials library to more advanced positions. I recommend becoming a part of the architecture and design community through organizations like IIDA, ASID, AIA.
