Initially from Hyrum, Utah, Plumb received a Master in Fine Arts in Interior Design Education from Brenau University in Gainesville, Georgia in 2016.
Admittedly, she didn’t know a lot about LDS Business College before applying for the director position, but she’s happy to be here. She brings a wealth of interior design work and educational experience to the College.
“When I came for my interview,” Plumb said, “I was so impressed by the diverse student body that it made my desire to come here even stronger.”
Plumb is impressed by the students at LDS Business College. “They’re amazing, kind, respectful and more hard-working than a lot of students I’ve worked with in other programs,” Plumb said.
One of her goals at the College is to elevate and improve the interior design program. She’s already gone to work to prepare program graduates to be successful in careers and four-year programs for those who chose to continue their educational pursuits.
Her advice for students is to: “Dream big. There’s nothing you can’t achieve if you dream big enough.”
For prospective students considering the interior design program, Plumb suggests: “Do some research and study what interior design is so you’ll be able to understand what you’ll be doing and what to expect in the profession.”
LDS Business College is home to a collegiate chapter of the International Interior Design Association (IIDA). The professional organization engages students and provides opportunities for continued skill development and networking between professionals and students.
The Interior Design Department is hosting a graduate showcase on April 4, 2018, from 5 to 6 p.m. in the multipurpose room. The annual exhibit provides an opportunity for graduating students to display their portfolios. Representatives from IIDA come to check-out students’ work. Family, friends and the general public are all invited to participate in the interior design showcase.
