History by Design

Kimberly Pope (BBA ’14) moved to Washington, D.C., last year, leaving her family and friends behind in Atlanta for a new city because “this is the kind of job you don’t say no to,” she says. “This is the dream job for an interior designer.”

As an interior designer and space planning specialist for the Office of Administration, Executive Office of the President in Washington, D.C., Pope oversees design projects for the White House complex.

“Every day is different, but mainly my job is to make sure the employees working here have everything they need to do their jobs within these historic and extraordinary structures,” says Pope.

From furniture selection and space planning to art galleries and cultural exhibitions, Pope covers a lot of historic ground. “I’ve been in many nooks and crannies — attics and basements — and it is very special to have that sort of access to history,” she says
