Educational work experiences:  Lecturer for 2nd year undergraduate classes including Studio, History and Theory of Design, and Interior Architectural Materials. Material Resource Library faculty manager for IARc includes managing staffing, instructional material purchasing, and resource management.  Faculty coordinator of iblog and inews aids in showcasing current student and program events. Graduate Program Committee faculty member.

Graduate assistant in three Visual Communications classes and an Environmental Design Studio class. This required teaching in the professor’s absence, assistance with running the classes, student assistance, grading, and assisting with creating new curriculum. Additionally, I personally championed the re-organization of the IARc Resource Library’s policies and processes for the benefit of the student body. This sustainable resource library required continuing research of new sustainable materials and completing CSI protocol sheets listing the sustainable attributes for public access on the UNCG library website. Daily maintenance was required to keep the resources current, administrative tasks complete, and staff scheduling/work load organized.

Professional experiences: J.C. White interior designer responsibilities included product specification of walls, floors, and furniture.  I was responsible for multiple high profile clients requiring constant customer interaction, project team coordination, and concurrent multiple project management.  Projects included local, national, and international installations with a variety of both government and private industries in corporate, educational, and medical facilities.  This included creating sales presentations, marketing materials, and personnel training.
