What brought you to Fanshawe?
I loved that Fanshawe offered a co-op program. To me, gaining work experience in my field while learning was invaluable. London is an awesome city, so that was another draw!
Tell us about your favourite Fanshawe experience.
Going to the Interior Design Show in Toronto was one of my favourite experiences - it was so inspiring, and gave me a little taste of what my future in design could be. Every time I go to the show now, I think back to my first time there! Right alongside that, was our end-of
-program portfolio presentation night. I was so proud to be able to showcase my hard work to family and friends, it really was just a super rewarding way to end the years I spent at Fanshawe.
What impact has Fanshawe had on your life?
Fanshawe has impacted my life by inspiring and supporting a strong work ethic. I am, and was passionate about interior design, and the design program really encouraged me to work hard for what I wanted.
What are you up to now?

I’m a Senior Designer / Design Manager with a boutique studio, focusing on luxury residential developments and client-based projects.
