University Innovation Fellows, NCIIA
Kaitlyn is currently a third-year Interior Architecture student at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Virginia. She is set to graduate in the year 2015, and has plans after college to further her education in architecture. When describing why she wants to study architecture, her immediate response is to make an impact through process, in order for those who are educated and those who are uneducated in architecture to see not only the outcome, but also the journey and decisions that made the outcome possible. Kaitlyn has recently been accepted into the University Innovation Fellows program and is looking forward to sharing her design processes with other UI Fellows, and learning how their processes can influence her designs and thinking, changing them for the better. She wants to meet and experience as much as she can within this new community of innovators, and is motivated to become a successful entrepreneur.
Kaitlyn is very involved and enjoys doing volunteer work for the community. When not involved in schoolwork or volunteering, Kaitlyn loves being active and playing sports. Within the past year, Kaitlyn has volunteered with Relay for Life, Rockingham County SPCA, and Habitat for Humanity. Currently within her design community, she is Vice President of her schools Interior Architecture Club, and has been a part of the club since staring at JMU. She has been a leader in organizing meeting, and club events. She works well in group setting and prefers collaborating with other organizations in order to achieve greater tasks, and integrate styles.
