Erin Whitman

Erin is a recent graduate of UW-Madison where she received her Interior Architecture BS and Design Strategy Certificate this spring. While at UW, she was very involved in the campus’ PinkySwear group, a student club that collaborates with the nonprofit PinkySwear Foundation to provide financial and emotional support for families affected by pediatric cancer.

Introduced to her by her UW career advisor, Erin immediately knew the interior architecture program was the path for her. The industry combines everything she enjoys: working with people using creativity, math, and science. She describes every project like a new puzzle, piecing together each part to develop a solution for the client. The impact of these environments on the human experience being her ultimate inspiration.
