I love what I do! Working in the ever-changing field of interior design allows me to fulfill my God-given passion.
I was only a teenager when I started rearranging our house.
I would move all the accessories around, and I even rearranged the furniture pieces. And when I was finished, I moved on to my grandmother’s house! I just had this vision—I could see how the space would be less cluttered and more balanced if I got rid of this table and moved this sofa over and switched those two photographs on the wall. I didn’t know I was creative or artistic until I started actually changing the way things looked.
Then, I decided to take interior design classes at night school while I was working a sales job in Toronto. After moving to Ohio, my first job was working in a furniture store called Sylvia Potter. I did everything from painting the plastered walls of the store to helping clients choose fabrics for their slipcovered furniture. I sold beds, tables, lamps, and accessories, and I learned what looks great together (and what doesn’t). Eventually, I developed personal relationships with my clients and started making house calls to help fulfill their design and decorating needs.
2011, I added my designation as a professional home stager to my repertoire.
Over the years, I have been blessed to work with realtors, national builders, professional designers, and home stagers, all while constantly learning and gaining more market expertise.
I love hearing my clients describe their personal design dreams and then making them become a reality. There’s nothing more fulfilling!
I recently finished a redesign project for a client that I have been working on for a year. He was a dream client and loved what I was doing every step of the way, encouraging me to keep going. When it was completed and I sent him the professional photos, he said, “Is that really my house?” I felt so accomplished and rewarded for my work because he was so happy.
Are you ready to say, “Is that really my house?” I would be grateful and honored to help you get excited about the space you live in!
