Currently Pruiksma is a Design Assistant at May + Watkins Design, and the Curatorial Assistant at the Albany International Airport. Her work at May + Watkins Design allows her to assist in the creation of large-scale public art commissions, interpretative exhibits and fantastical play structures across the United States.
