My first decorating experience happened when I was in the third grade. My grandmother thought that I would enjoy redecorating my room as a good distraction from the arrival of a new baby brother. As we carefully coordinated bedding, window treatments, and wallcovering, my grandmother suggested that I study Interior Design. That treasured moment turned into a passion, and a bad habit of rearranging my mother's furniture!
In 2002 I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Interior Design from Harding University. I have worked for Architectural Firms in Texas and Oklahoma, practicing commercial Interiors, and as a Design Industry Representative, selling wallcoverings and fabrics.
My desire is to help my clients create a living space that is not just a showpiece, but an environment of comfort, beauty, and purpose. A home to gather in and bring joy to those who live there. A place to come back to, yearn for, and gain rest. A space that has beauty and purpose.
Besides practicing design, I am a wife and mother to four boys and a dog! Our family loves to play games, go camping, cook together, eat ice cream, and travel. We are a military family, and have had the pleasure of living in Oklahoma, Germany, and currently Alaska. The diversity that comes from moving and experiencing life in new places has benefited my design skills and style. I strive to be understanding of all lifestyles, budgets, and design challenges.
