A product of a transient military family, Ann Theriot’s sensitivity to the impact of the built environment on the health of individuals and families was shaped from an early age. During the course of a 15-year career as a practicing hospitality and residential interior designer, she led numerous successful design projects around the world, from Kensington Palace in London, England to luxury hotels in Mekkah, Saudi Arabia. Some of her research interests are the history of 18th century British and French furnishing, and intersections of sociology and interior environments. Her work as a senior designer leading countless interns and junior designers has made her passionate about mentoring emerging professional designers. During the summers, Ms. Theriot oversees the Baylor internship program and directs the biennial Interior Design European study abroad trip.

Clinical Involvement:

As an opportunity to amplify course objectives and preparedness for internships, Ms. Theriot regularly integrates her students with the community-oriented professional design work in which she engages.

What Teaching at Baylor Means to Me:

Ms. Theriot’s calling from full-time professional practice to teaching Interior Design on the collegiate level was always and only for the intention of returning to her Alma Mater to prepare students for the demands and skills required to succeed in architecture and design. The privilege and responsibility of teaching within a Christian worldview at Baylor has been personally meaningful and professionally fruitful.
