Graduate Spotlight

Ontario native Sandra (Hodgins 07) Hussin ’21 fondly remembers having a creative mind and a love for design from a very early age. Throughout high school and during her undergraduate time at Houghton, she cultivated that passion for design with a doublemajor in Art and Business. After a traumatic life event caused her to realize a new view of work, Sandra left the position she had been in for almost a decade and launched her own design business, Sandra Hussin Interiors. Houghton’s MBA program inspired her as she built a foundational business plan that remains successful in her business launch.
