Welcome to the 2019 Design/Build Interns!

We're thrilled to introduce you to our 2019 Design/Build Interns!

Regan Bosnyak

D/B Intern and Tiny House Design/Build Certificate Teaching Assistant

Regan Bosnyak was born and raised in the state of Connecticut. She attended Stony Brook University as a student-athlete and earned a B.A. in Environmental Design, Policy and Planning. On graduation day, Billy Joel spoke to the sea of students and instilled his words of wisdom, “If you don’t love what you're doing, you're wastin' your time!” Regan ran with Billy’s advice all the way to Colorado and four years later back to Vermont to attend Yestermorrow. She surely won’t let Billy down!

Regan is looking forward to taking the Intro to SketchUp and LayoutSustainable Treehouse Design and Construction and Timber Framing courses as part of her internship!

Ray McMahon

D/B Intern and Certificate in Residential Design and Construction Teaching Assistant

Ray grew up in South Texas as the daughter of two architects. Flipping houses in her formative years set her up for a life of building. More interested in off the grid practices, natural processes, and community living principles she has spent the past few years learning different building and living opportunities in the Southwest. Looking for more of a holistic approach to sustainability she has found her way into the woodshop attempting to make creative, functional objects that challenge people to question their own relationships. She completed the Yestermorrow Woodworking Certificate in the Fall of 2018. 

To round out her internship, Ray will be taking Intro to SketchUp and LayoutIntro to Revit, Concrete CountertopsSustainable Treehouse Design and Construction, and Architectural Stained Glass!

Rachel Wylie

Kitchen and D/B Intern

Rachel was born and raised in coastal California. From a young age, she filled her days barefoot, making mud pies, catching tadpoles in the river, and swooping the best snap peas from the garden. Not much has changed. Through her degree in Community & Regional Development, Rachel became increasingly interested in the ways that food production, the built environment, and use of outdoor space can revitalize communities & heal the planet. She is excited to feast on the smorgasbord of inspiring people, progressive knowledge, and hands-on-skills that Yestermorrow is cooking up.

Rachel is excited for the Intro to SketchUp and Layout, Art of Stone, Beginning Furniture Making and Edible Garden Design and Installation courses!

Daniel Jackson

D/B Intern  and Natural Building Certificate Teaching Assistant

For as long as he can remember, Daniel has loved building things, whether with blocks, Legos, or wood. After spending most of his childhood overseas, Daniel returned to New England for college where he studied engineering and studio art. He then worked as a carpenter for a variety of companies before ending up at Yestermorrow as an intern. During his time at the school, he is excited to expand his fine woodworking skills and learn as much as he can from the vibrant Yestermorrow community.

Daniel will be honing some of his skills in the Intro to SketchUp and Layout and Chair Making Design/Build courses!
