Favorite Place on Earth:

Design Background & Goals:
My first design job was in-house for a fondue restaurant chain, where I was paid more in cheese than money (not an altogether bad deal). I transitioned into residential design before landing in the world of Contract FF&E, where I spent nearly a decade. I worked my way from Designer to Project Manager to Director of Design, specifying FF&E for corporate, education, healthcare and government projects. In 2015, I made the decision to leave the corporate world and branch out on my own. I’ve always had the goal of creating the workplace I wish I had when I was in corporate America. I’m proud to have a team of brilliant and talented designers and I’m blessed to get to work with my family. I love that we have a fun and flexible work style.  Our freedom from the traditional workspace allows us to see outside the box and create spaces unique to the amazing clients we work for.

In 2020 I began interning with TSD as what was supposed to be a short summer internship then soon grew into a part-time role as I finished college to eventually becoming a full-time designer upon graduation. My goal is to continue learning and growing at TSD and to hopefully one day grow into a role where I can lead and help new designers.
