|During my 21 years of experience in Interior Architectural design for commercial, retail and hostility firm(s), I grew into a position as a studio manager for some large and high-end clients. After a few years of managing design teams, I found that I spent a majority of my time on the client side. I was helping them with many aspects of not only their new spaces, but providing guidance in communications and strategies with the contractor, third-party project managers and their internal REWS team. During the last two years as a studio manager, I contemplated becoming a client rep to expand my knowledge and value to the overall project process, including gaining more experience in capital budgets, process management and guidance to the entire project team. This move provided many benefits for me to expand my knowledge and value for future endeavors.
