In today's Monday Meet, we are excited to introduce Meredith and Aubrey, Nisolo's summer interns!
Meredith is joining the Nisolo team for the summer as a design intern. She is about to enter her 3rd year at Tulane University in New Orleans where she is currently pursuing her Masters degree in Architecture.
Meredith is so excited to be a part of Nisolo because it provides a great way for her to further her design skills outside of school while also helping out with a really good cause. She especially appreciates the handmade qualities of Nisolo’s shoes - “Not only are they made for a great cause, but they also show the care and attention to detail of the people who made them. In this way, they feel a little bit more personal when you put them on.”
At Tulane, Meredith spends most of her time working in architecture school, where she loves learning how to see the world in a completely new way. In her free time, she loves reading books, attempting to cook, and listening to some good, live music. After graduating, she ultimately hopes to go into Historic Preservation so that she can bring back buildings of the past as a form of sustainable design. She wants to use this summer as a way to experience design in a new way, and she is loving her time in Nashville, TN at the Nisolo headquarters.
Aubrey is the Design and Photography summer Intern for Nisolo. Born in California but raised in Nashville, Tennessee, she couldn't be happier to have found such a unique and passionate group of people to work with right down the street from her apartment. Aubrey is currently focused on finishing her BFA in Design Communications and Minor in Dance at Belmont University. With graduation this December, she also can't wait to explore the world outside of school and see where life leads her next.
Nisolo fell into her lap through a friend of a friend connected with Belmont, and after scouring the web and learning about the company and the purpose behind it, she fell in love. She likes to think that great things happen when you take the backseat in life and let the big guy upstairs drive the car around instead. She's just thrilled that this car happened to stop at the Nisolo Headquarters.
Here are a few other quick facts about Aubrey:
One thing you are hoping to accomplish this summer: Building my Photography Portfolio and taking more drives with the windows down through the country
Guilty Pleasure: Iced chai tea from Starbucks, Vogue Magazine, roof sitting, the great outdoors
Interesting Fact: I am known for sleep talking. Past quotes from this unconscious talking include: "Look, a monkey!" and "Did you know you can eat dogs?"
We are privileged to have this wonderful duo on the Nisolo team! We hope you enjoyed getting to know Meredith and Aubrey, and we'll leave you with this shot of the two of them...
Thanks for "Meeting Meredith and Aubrey this Monday!"
