Edmondson is a member of the ISU chapter of the Industrial Designers Society of America and served on the ISU College of Design's student Design Council for two years, including one as treasurer. She participated in the ISU Student Innovation Center Design Challenge Summit in 2012 and has competed in Brunnier in Bloom at the Brunnier Art Museum since its inception in 2009.
