WER Summer Interns

Posted on 06.15.18

Welcome Summer Interns – Riley Vetsch and Toria Adkison to our Little Rock office and Conner Payne to our Fayetteville office! The entire WER team is thrilled to have them joining us this summer!

Riley is from Conway, Arkansas and is attending the University of Arkansas where she is pursuing a Bachelor of Architecture in the Fay Jones School of Architecture + Design. The ability to see the physical embodiment of an original creative process is what drew Riley to architecture in the beginning, but the challenge to give a space it’s worth is what leaves her wanting more. Any time she has a free second, she loves to play with her three puppies and work on any craft project she can get her hands on.

Toria will be a senior at Harding University in the fall, pursuing her B.A. in Interior Design. She is originally from Cincinnati, Ohio but have called Central Arkansas home for the past 3 years. Her interest in interior design came from a love of art and organization and has grown into a passion for improving people’s experiences in the built environment. She would like to pursue hand rendering for interior design and architecture firms after graduation. In her free time, Toria enjoys hiking, baking, playing violin and drawing.

Conner is a 3rd year student in the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design at the U of A, pursuing his Bachelor of Architecture. He is originally from Grapevine, Texas but now lives in Fayetteville with his wife Hannah and goldendoodle Samson. His interest in architecture came from a love of solving complex problems and developed into a drive to create space and form that provide an opportunity for people to experience and interact with architecture in a more personable way. In his free time, Conner enjoys walking his dog and biking.
