I encourage clients to engage me for how I design, rather than for what I've designed for others. For me, the joy of designing is in understanding and communicating the client's personality.
I followed my dream, returning to college and graduating summa cum laude. An internship with Jamie Drake and several years of employment with two of New Jersey's most talented designers gave me the experience I needed to launch my own firm. I was recently certified as a Living in Place Professional.
I am an Allied Member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and am currently the President of the New Jersey Chapter. I've held several positions within the organization including Student Chapter President, Student Affairs Chairperson and Programs Committee Chairperson. Prior to being selected as President, I served on the Board of Directors as At-Large Director and as President-Elect. I am a two-time recipient of my chapter's Presidential Citation Award, and was recently honored by my chapter with the Rene Baron Hennessy Award.
I hold two design competition awards. My work has been published in New York Spaces, Design NJ, i+D Magazine and the Star Ledger.
My favorite community contributions include designing & installing Katie's bedrooms for Katie's House, Inc. (bedroom image), completing the interiors of Richard's Place and donating tablescapes for Project Self-Sufficiency's annual Dining by Design auction.
