Interior Design Coordinator
Aylen Phommachanh joined VMA in July 2021 as part of our interior design studio, and will be pursuing her degree in interior design from the Community College of Philadelphia after studying sociology at Bryn Mawr College for three years. Her extensive community-oriented experience ranges from working at a small design & preservation firm in Savannakhet and with the Khammouane Development Project, both in Laos, to volunteering with Girls Rock Philly in a variety of roles. Aylen was born in Argentina, where her family took refuge after leaving Laos and Thailand during the Vietnam War, but has spent most of her life in Philadelphia. When she is not busy with her beloved dog, Cappuchino, she plays volleyball and softball in addition to crocheting, collecting rocks or crystals, and reading sociology research or fiction that promotes diversity.
