Today is National Intern Day, which gives us the opportunity to celebrate the passion, dedication and potential of the young designers who contribute to so many of our successful projects. We acknowledge the profound impact internships have on shaping careers and the future of the design industry.
While reflecting on her experience at Garmann Miller, Myah Husted noted how her time assisting our design team this summer has enhanced her organizational communication skills. “I’m much more comfortable talking to clients and new people in the professional world,” the Ohio University senior remarked.
Let’s meet the rest of GM’s interns:
Hayley Baumer – Master of architecture program at The Ohio State University
Harper Flynn – Senior studying mechanical engineering at Ohio Northern University
Isaac Wendel – Senior studying mechanical engineering at Purdue University Fort Wayne
Jonathan Nelson – Junior studying electro-mechanical engineering at Miami University
Lilly Pelletier – Master of architecture program at The Ohio State University
Katelyn Vagedes – Senior studying architecture at Ball State University
Sara Muhlenkamp – Senior studying interior design at Ball State University

Completing an internship at Garmann Miller also improves a student’s ability to earn full-time employment after graduation at GM. Veteran designers such as executive director and board member Matt Hibner, professionally certified interior designer Hannah Fleck and architect Ryan Heitkamp all spent time learning at GM while in college.
“I firmly believe that internships are not just steppingstones; they are the foundation upon which future leaders and innovators are shaped,” Garmann Miller CEO Eric Baltzell said. “Embracing internships has nurtured a culture of learning, growth and collaboration.”
Garmann Miller will continue to place importance on providing opportunities and mentorship to students on their path to higher education. To apply for an internship, send your resume to Rebecca Backs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
