My Story: 
I am currently enrolled in the Interior Design Program at Madison Area Technical College and intend to graduate this May 2019. From day one of my first class, I knew that Interior Design was the right path for me. I didn't realize how versatile an Interior Design career could be and I'm still trying to narrow down exactly where I'd like to specialize. Lighting is my favorite class this fall, and I'm excited to enter Kitchen and Bath Class this spring. I started with Gerhard's as a student intern over the summer and applied for a permanent position in August. I'm learning a ton and looking forward to continuing to learn more about kitchen and bath design and all the products and finishes involved.

My Favorite Part of My Job: 
Being new, my favorite part right now is accomplishing a task or goal that had previously intimidated me. I love that I'm learning product knowledge and how plumbing all comes together. I also love seeing new displays or finishes come in. Sometimes the combinations surprise me, and they remind me to keep an open mind.

What Set's Me Apart: 
I started as a student intern

My Passions/Hobbies:
I don't have many hobbies at the moment. When I have down time between work, class, homework and housework, my favorite thing to do is either go out to dinner or put on some leggings, cozy up on the couch with a plush blanket and binge watch my favorite shows. I still play Sims and enjoy applying what I've learned from class to designing homes in my perfect little virtual towns.
