She believes great design signifies dealing with a challenge and solving a problem with aesthetic, functionality, technology, and innovation. Nazgol graduated as the valedictorian of her class with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interior Design from Interior Designers Institute, in Newport Beach, California, and has "chaired" several ASID events including the Programs, and ASID OC Annual Installation Gala & Design Awards.
