Art and design become forms of expression we can cultivate from culture, experiences, and passions. I believe effective design begins with a unique purpose. Redesigning interiors can be life changing — from health and wellness to functionality. Remodeling a home can allow a client to stay in the space where they built a lifetime of family memories, while also providing a fresh start toward a new way of life. As a designer, I focus my attention on prioritizing the client and their lifestyle. This is your home and your overall quality of life.
My story begins in Central California, where I left my remote hometown to start a design career in Southern California. I have an educational background in architecture, graphic design, and interior design from California Polytechnic State University and Chaffey College. During my studies at Cal Poly, I began working with two interior designers, gaining great on-site experience in home renovations. Once graduated, my husband and I made the courageous decision to leave our home state for an exciting new adventure in Middle Tennessee. There, I began working as a Design Consultant at RH Nashville where I learned the art of curating luxury furnishings, leading presentations, designing furniture layouts, and helping clients evaluate their investment. However, I began to miss working on new construction homes and renovations. The opportunity to work as Senior Design Associate for ONYX + ALABASTER opened up where I evaluated design challenges and curated both aesthetic and functional solutions with luxury furnishings, renovation plans, and new construction concepts from start to finish.
Having grown up in a rural area, I tend to gravitate toward organic elements and combine them with a modern flare. I have an appreciation for reclaimed materials, where imperfections tell a story and preserve history. My favorite part of the design process is getting to know each client and allowing their personality to shine through the project. It’s fulfilling being able to share my passion and help people create a home unique to them, without sacrificing treasured memories and functionality.
