Olya has an inherent passion for everything interior design from spacial arrangement to an understanding of design principles. She knew that Interior Design was her destiny, but was scared to take that step towards her dream. She had a successful career as a Marketing Manager at a software company where she managed projects with large enterprise clients. Interior Design was always in the back of her mind and she always looked for opportunities to implement design in her work. She eventually came to the realization that she was unhappy and unfulfilled — it was time for a change.
After a year of researching Heritage School of Interior Design, she finally made the decision to enroll and her life has since changed in the best possible ways! The Heritage program validated her natural talent for design and gave her the skills she needed to pursue a career in Interior Design. A few weeks before graduating, Olya flew to San Fransisco for a job interview at Hart Howerton Architects and we are so excited to announce she was offered the position! She will be working under Principle Designer, Fatima McNell as an Interior Design Intern.
Hart Howerton’s practice is “Designing Complete Environments™—exceptional buildings, communities and places—in special situations, where a unique historic or natural environment requires an especially thoughtful and innovative solution.”
We are so proud of Olya’s achievements and we can’t wait to see flourish as an Interior Designer!
