Sarah is a Bachelor of Interior Design candidate at the Boston Architectural College. She grew up on a farm in central Connecticut, where she was surrounded by the development of natural processes. She came to the BAC directly from high school and says, "I was a bit out of my element when I moved to Boston, but the program at the BAC offered a unique experience. I knew I wanted to be in the city so it made sense," she says.

It turns out that Sarah's experience on the childhood farm gave her important concepts to apply to her design work, specifically reuse and recycling. She pays close attention to versatility of materials and schemes so that the design attains maximum usage. She also considers the future life of her design, imagining how things will be aged or repurposed.

Since arriving at the BAC, Sarah has found a home amongst the positive faculty and students. The support she has received from staff and classmates has had a strong impact on her growth as a designer. Sarah also comments that "The social/networking events are also a plus. The BAC knows how to arrange some fancy evenings."

Sarah serves as the 2013-2014 Secretary for the Interior Design Society and works at Reflex Lighting in South Boston.
