Associate Designer

Bachelor of Science in Interior Design, Middle Tennessee State University / Professional Member of IIDA and ASID

To me, EWP is: EWP is a hardworking team of creative problem-solvers with a passion for forward-thinking workplace design. As a growing professional, I have found the firm to be an encouraging and motivating environment for advancing my commercial design career. I am incredibly thankful for the mentorship, encouragement, and experiences the EWP team provides me daily.

My path to architecture and design: In hindsight, constantly stealing my little brother’s Legos to build dream houses should have been my first clue. However, as the daughter of a teacher and an artist, pursuing a degree in art education seemed like the natural path for me. After a few years of teaching art at a nonprofit, our organization moved to a new location, and I was put in charge of space planning and design. It was during that process that everything clicked for me. Once we settled in, I stepped down from my role to go back to school full-time for interior design. As I delve deeper into the field, I am continually reassured that I made the right choice.

My role at EWP: As an Associate Designer, I assist in production, contribute to renderings, and collaborate with my team on design concepts. Additionally, I am the first true local of our Nashville branch. I hope to be a bridge for our firm in our new ventures down south, and I like to think I provide a unique knowledge of the area that only a native Tennessean could possess.

Outside of EWP: When I’m not working, you’ll likely find me hanging out with my retired racing greyhound, running the Shelby Greenway, taking weekend trips with friends, and enjoying all the best spots in my beloved East Nashville neighborhood.
