Hi! I'm so glad you're here. I am an award winning licensed interior designer with almost 20 years of experience.
After graduating from the University of Maryland, I moved to New York where a career in retail and home furnishings ultimately led me to a role as a corporate buyer for a major fashion designer's eponymous home collection product.
Twice a year, I would spend an intensive week with the company's in-house team of architects and interior designers, where I would work with them to strategically replicate the seasons' new product lifestyles in each of the company's 18 retail locations, with mindfulness towards using the right balance of new product to existing product which was already proven successful for each region's client base. Having grown up with a passion for musical theater performance, I realized that a career in interior design had the potential to provide the creative outlet I was most missing in my early professional life, while still making use of the skills I'd honed in the corporate environment. I returned to school where I earned a degree in Interior Design at New York School of Interior Design, and have since experienced a rich career balancing my love of design with my passion for working with people, creating enriching experiences through the built environment.
