As I write this article, I look at all the technology in our office that did not exist when I started my first job at a Boston architectural firm back in 1983. The drafting tables are gone. I now sit (and stand) at an adjustable desk with 2 monitors.

That quote was from a letter to me in 1979 when I wrote to several architects in NH, asking for an interior designer position.  Hmmm thought I, how can this be?  After a few years as a commercial designer in the Washington DC area, I was accompanying my then husband to NH as he joined the UNH faculty.  I could work in Boston but after experiencing the DC commute, that option was not high on my list.
