What do you do at Model55?

As a Project Facilitator at Model55, I act as a liaison between Model55 subcontractors (Local Staging Partners, handymen, and white glove installers) and our clients – managing the scheduling of appointments at communities and ensuring all applicable details, confirmations, materials, and other needs for appointments are communicated in a timely fashion to the appropriate parties. I also act as a liaison between our Local Staging Partners and the Model55 design team – ensuring Local Staging Partners are properly coached on Model55 field measure and install standards, making sure project materials are available in a timely fashion, and that direct communication between Local Staging Partners and Model55 designers is initiated for high priority projects and installations.

 

What is your past experience?

I graduated from Keene State College in 2018 with a degree in Studio Art and minor in Art History. During my time at Keene, I worked at a handmade tile company as well as a senior living community. After graduation I worked at a sales company before interning at the Umbrella Community Arts Center in Concord, MA. Working alongside the Visual Arts Manager, I gained hands on experience working in a gallery setting, curating art shows, and forming relationships with the residing artists.

 

What is the most inspiring part of your job?

Having previously worked at a Senior Living Community, I really enjoy seeing the finished product of our models and hearing how much the communities and residents appreciate having a fresh space to call home.

 

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 

I really enjoy sketching/drawing in my free time, it’s a great stress reliever and something I’ve always been fond of. I also enjoy finding new music and going to see live bands.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

There will be people that will say you can’t make a living out of something you love to do, but are you really living by not doing it?
