We are pleased to announce that Liz recently passed the National Council for Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) Examination and earned her NCIDQ Certificate. The rigorous, three-part NCIDQ Examination covers all aspects of professional practice and related topics such as codes, sustainability and universal design.
A graduate of Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Liz has been an RLPSer since April 2013. In celebration of this accomplishment, we asked her to share a few thoughts about her journey to earning this accreditation.
My motivation is the opportunity to create something new every single project. No two projects are the same. I enjoy brainstorming ideas to potentially push the boundaries and see how open each client may be for trying something new that might initially be outside their comfort zone.
I was told in high school that eating dark chocolate after studying helps you retain information better so I would snack on that after studying. I am not positive it helped, but it made me feel better!
I passed the exam at the perfect time. Now I have a lot less stress and more time for planning a wedding.
It’s an RLPS tradition that firm partners cut the scarf (or tie) of a newly credentialed interior designer or architect during our monthly staff meeting. Although the history of this practice is a little murky, the tradition continues mostly because it’s fun and certainly worth celebrating the achievements of our staff members.
