Bio

I always dreamed of being a designer since I was a young girl. My grandfather was a high end upholsterer and together I would design furniture and he would build it. One of those creations being a child size pink velvet love seat and matching ottoman. That’s where my love of furniture and design began. I studied Interior Design at Berkeley College and graduated in 2007. Since I have been working throughout New Jersey. After over a decade in the business, I have gained a large amount of product knowledge on so many wonderful manufactures in the industry. That helps me greatly when selecting furniture and accessories in different styles, fabrics, and budgets for my clients. Traveling to the High Point furniture market and Brimfield antique show has kept me in tune with all that is out there in this unique and diverse field. Being able to pass that knowledge onto my clients in order to select the perfect pieces for their home is something that I pride myself on. I love getting to know my clients, their personal style, and helping them create a beautiful and inviting space that tells their guests a lot about who they are and what they love just by walking through their door.
When I am not designing, I am a wife to a handsome Chef named Austin. Together we have a son, also named Austin, but we call him Austie for short and our three dogs, Chester chip, Darla belle, and Winnie. I am a huge animal lover and also foster when I can. We live in a wonderful lake community that we are fortunate enough to call home. I write a monthly design column for Lake Living Magazine titled ” Designing with Whimsy “. My other “home” is on the ice. Which is where you can find me in the early hours of the morning. I have been a figure skater since the age of 2, and continue to keep it with me as long as I am able to! I love old movies, antiques, anything sweet, and anything that sparkles, and of course being a homebody.
Thank you for getting to know me. I look forward to getting to know you too!
