Growing up, I was immersed in design. My dad owned a kitchen and bath showroom, and I would always visit and see the new projects. When I went to college, I was interested in residential design, but gradually, my interests shifted to commercial spaces. We spend a lot of time in these spaces, and I get a lot of satisfaction from creating something that impacts everyday lives. Working with clients and learning how the space will function is one of the best parts of the design process.
What other designer do you admire and why?
Jillissa Moorman, one of my college professors. She pushes the boundaries of education and encourages students to think outside the box, inspiring the future of design.
What makes us fun to be around?
The people. It’s a great mix of kind, funny, and sarcastic personalities. I also appreciate that we take the time to celebrate our achievements.
What do you do in your spare time?
My husband and I own five acres, so we spend a lot of time outside. We have lots of flowers that I enjoy gardening in the summer. Peonies and hydrangeas are my favorite. We are also a short drive from the golf course and spend many summer weekends there.
