I'm an Oregon native who went to Oregon State but graduated from University of Oregon then later left for Monterey, CA area to pursue my Masters in teaching English. I lived in Croatia for a year, lived in Carmel, LA, Key West and studied abroad in Siena, Italy. I traveled to the Maldives, Africa (Tunisia, Morocco & Rwanda) as well as all throughout Europe. I could not wait to see what was around the next corner, embracing every culture to the fullest. While a Pacific Northwest girl at heart, my love for travel has undeniably shaped my love for design.
I'm a lover of health, organic and purposeful living. I find happiness in nature, most likely, at the beach with a good cup of coffee. I love a hard workout, with my latest obsession being barre 3, yoga, running, or a good cycle class! I adore shopping for treasures, finding that perfect piece for a client (and myself, let's be honest!), spending time with my husband and four incredible girls who keep me busy with everything from sports to theatre. I love to entertain and plan parties. I believe that where we dwell can bring peace if it's created to fit the need of the family. This is a big reason I love to design.
There is something special about seeing a vision come to life with concepts that are both accessible and liveable. I'm passionate about translating that creative vision into remarkable spaces. I desire our experience to be comfortable and collaborative while bringing your vision to life.
If you're ready to reclaim your space and fall in love with your home again, I'm here to help you.
