SDA Student Spotlights
Marymount Graphic Design and Honors Program alumna Regina Ball recently had her work for Phone2Action, a grassroots advocacy software, showcased on the Capital One Arena in DC.
She was hired as Phone2Action’s first Graphic Designer in September 2016 and was recently promoted to Creative Manager. In this role she not only designs the creative for the company, but also creates and orders client gifts, branded swag, manages social media and website content, and provides photography and videography for internal and external events.
New York City interior designer Tyler Wisler grew up in Hawaii knowing he wanted a creative arts career but unsure of the specific field. He started college at another university in the D.C. area as a general art design major. When other students saw how Tyler transformed his dorm room, they immediately suggested he should consider interior design.
Transferring to the New York School of Interior Design (NSID) for his second year, Tyler earned a certificate while working full time. When he decided to return to D.C. for his bachelor’s, he discovered Marymount’s CIDA-accredited interior design program. Full semester course loads and summer school enabled him to finish his degree program and walk with his graduating class in just two years.
Katie, who swam distance for the Saints, had completed open water swims in Chesapeake Bay, won a distance event off Key West in 2012 and 2013, and was second in a 15-mile swim near Cape May in her native New Jersey. Now an assistant MU swim coach and head coach at Bishop O’Connell High School, she took second in a 24-mile swim in Tampa Bay in 2015. But she’d never done anything quite like this. The channel is 21 miles wide, but because of changing tides, she had to swim 34 miles before reaching Cape Nez-Gris, in northern France.
