How did you get into interior design?
“Studied and majored in Art History, history of architecture classes were my favorites. I went back to school in Interior Design 5 years after graduating, simultaneously working for a commercial designer, but it was my love for homes that led me to work primarily as a residential designer.”
When you are not working with clients, how do you like to spend your time?
“Walking & hiking, tennis, eating, newest hobby is paddleboarding.”
What is your office style like?
`2021 brought a major overhaul to my office with new paint and carpet, which required me to completely empty the space and did a major purge before any item went back in, feels very uncluttered and organized, now granted it is an active working office, so yes there a ‘piles’ here and there!”
3 things on your desk you cannot live without?
Red ink pens! #1 item not only on my desk but in my purse, on the kitchen counter, everywhere!!
Do you have any pets?
“Golden retriever girl dog 5 years old named Ryder, 4th golden in 32 years, my husband adores this dog breed!”
Do you listen to music while working? If so, what is your go-to playlist?
“Honestly, no, I like to stay quiet… I have learned I can focus best this way.”
What inspires you?
“Travel, art & nature.”
What is your favorite thing to help clients with?
“Master bedrooms – clients are very reluctant to prioritize their own personal spaces over other common spaces that the entire family will use. I have learned through my years of work there is actually nothing more important than creating a sanctuary in that very personal space. Each time we have finally completed Master Bedroom projects, the client almost always expresses, “I can’t believe I waited so long to do this.” In my current work with clients, I always try and steer them to prioritize that space.”
What is one tip you think everyone needs to hear?
“Hiring and working with a designer will add more cost to an interiors project, but that will more than be made up for with the end result because of the expertise and resources that Interior Designers are able to bring to a project.”
Favorite lunch while working?
“Ham sandwich with tomatoes, chips on the side, and mint lemongrass tea!”
