Meet Kristen Rushlow, one of our Interior Designers here at Glenn|Partners! Kristen grew up in Northern Michigan in a little town on the water called Boyne City. Upon graduating from the Interior Architecture + Design program at Florida State University in 2020, she made her way westward to Dallas, TX. Kristen and her family recently decided to plant down roots in the area by building their first home in Frisco!
In her free time, Kristen enjoys quality time spent with her family. Although she considers herself a bit of a homebody, she loves to get outside with her two dogs commonly known as “the girls”. Having grown up on the Great Lakes, Kristen feels her happiest near water whether she’s boating, jet skiing, or just simply enjoying the view from the shore.

First Moment when you realized you wanted to be an Architect
I can't say there was an exact moment. As long as I can remember, I wanted to design in some capacity. My parents were both engineers, so I was used to drafting tools around the house. One day, probably around 7 or 8 years old I sat down at my dad's drafting desk and started drawing up floor plans and never stopped!
