Libby is a designer in the field of Interior Architecture and a Masters of Design: Adaptive Reuse candidate at the Rhode Island School of Design. Her work seeks to address issues of mental and physical wellbeing through spaces that are restorative for the individual, the community, and the environment. Libby has experienced the acute stress of housing insecurity throughout her life and is drawn to the power of the Tiny Living movement to provide greater psychological and financial stability, meaningful community, and freedom to focus on the important things in life. As someone who has cared for parents with disabilities, Libby saw the power of WheelPad to provide critical and innovative relief to families in need. She partnered with WheelPad and Linesync Architecture this past summer to conceptualize and refine designs for a WheelPad Tiny House.
