Ashley Sowa

Seeing all the different interior spaces during a tour of Europe spiked my interest in Interior Design. I still enjoy visiting historical buildings and learning from them.

Vitals:

  • 3 years of experience
  • Bachelor of Science, Interior Design, Minor in Business Management / East Carolina University
  • Member, International Interior Design Association (IIDA)

What helps Ashley relax

Running- not long-distance, but just a couple miles a few times a week to zone out for a little. I have more energy after a run and feel revived to continue/start the day.

Sneakers
Cheese

A few of her favorite things

I can't live without cheese – Brie, Cheddar, Goat… I love them all! I am also always drinking water. I've actually been at a restaurant where the waiter ended up bringing me my own pitcher.

Early influences

I danced with a company for a little over 13 years growing up. I think it contributed (or could even be blamed) for my obsessive attention to detail.

Advice to students

I would say to be patient and persistent, nothing happens right away. I've discovered that building a network by connecting with people from multiple cities, states, and career fields will help get someone where they envision themselves being in the long run.
