About the Designer

It was my father's keen eye that initiated the sentence which signed my professional career. After watching me decorate and redecorate my bedroom for years, he looked at me and confidently stated, "you should be an interior designer." It was a personal epiphany that fueled my future.

The light bulb that went off that day led me to my BA degree in Interior Design. I had found my calling!

Shortly after college I was designing my first Show House, which sold immediately after the show with all furnishings and accessories inside. I worked with the builder and his wife to design the interiors of their own home, as well as many of his clients. We collaborated on homes for many years, which led him to publish our work in his own business marketing magazine, as well as features in other local Builder/ Architect magazines.

Business blossomed, my passions ignited. Being adventurous, I discovered new paths for developing my talents. Starting with new home construction and renovations, I moved to commercial interiors and furniture specification for large corporate clients, and added multi-family housing and senior living facilities to my repetoire as well. These experiences brought with them skills in designing custom millwork, furniture procurement, and project management.

What this brings to your project is over 25 years experience in working with clients and projects of all sizes. I have collaborated with home owners, business owners, architects, artisans and construction crews. My passion is to find the soul of the project, and manage the details to create value for all who will dwell there.

I love that I get to do this every day. Creating environments that “feel like home” is what drives me to live, breathe, and dream about your space until it is truly “you.”

Design is integrated into who I am. My goal is to share that with you; to bring some fresh perspective and inspiration to your life as well. Allow me to help you to reimagine the possibilities!
