Rachel Bartelsmeyer, Stephanie Graf and Trisha Militello Earn NCIDQ
Spellman Brady & Company (SBC) is proud to announce that three interior designers – Rachel Bartelsmeyer, Stephanie Graf and Trisha Militello – have earned their National Council of Interior Design Qualification (NCIDQ) Certification. With their recent accomplishment, SBC’s professional staff of NCIDQ interior designers has increased to 50%.
Prior to applying for the NCIDQ Examination each interior designer must be college educated and have a minimum of 1,760 hours of interior design work experience. After CIDQ approved eligibility, each of the three designers took and passed the entire NCIDQ Exam consisting of three separate exams; the Fundamentals Exam (IDFX), the Professional Exam (IDPX), and the Practicum Exam (PRAC). By achieving NCIDQ, each designer has proven her expertise in understanding and applying current codes established to protect public health, safety and welfare.
Rachel Bartelsmeyer graduated from Kansas State University where she earned a Bachelor of Science, Interior Design & Gerontology. She has eight years of working experience and joined SBC in April 2017.
Stephanie Graf has a Bachelor of Fine Arts, Interior Design from Maryville University. She joined SBC in September 2015 and has a total of nine years of working experience.
Trisha Militello received her Bachelor of Fine Arts, Interior Design from Maryville University. While at Maryville, she interned with SBC and upon graduation in May 2015 joined the firm.
NCIDQ Certification is the industry’s recognized standard of proficiency in interior design principles and a designer’s commitment to the profession. Professional interior designers who possess the NCIDQ Certification have distinguished themselves by demonstrating a specific set of core competencies of interior design: building systems, codes, construction standards, contract administration, design application, professional practice and project coordination.
