Staged to Peferfection - Staged to Sell

My mission is to help homeowners and home sellers to create beautiful spaces that they would be proud to own or to sell. I will help you prepare your home for the market for sale. However, perhaps you just want to create an organized, efficient and peaceful space for your family. I can help you achieve that as well. Are you confused about where to place furniture, what colors you want in your rooms, where to hang art or what accessories to use? Maybe, you are struggling with the piles of stuff around. Your home should be a reflection of who you are. I am ready to help and to advise so that your reflection comes through.

I was born and raised in St. John’s, NL. In 1980 I moved to Clarenville, NL where I was an educator, school psychologist and school counsellor for 30 years. I have since returned to St. John’s where I am now living.
Thirty years of working with youth and with the public has helped me to develop a strong work ethic. My work as a counsellor and a psychologist has given me very good interpersonal and communication skills. I know how to listen to what you are saying and to what you want. I have a deep understanding of the importance of trust in a relationship between a stager and a client. I also have the ability to understand the personal attachment you have formed with your home and the emotions that are involved in selling and leaving a home you have spent many years living in.
I have been involved with Crime Prevention in the province for the past 20 years. I,therefore, am someone whom you can trust in your home and with your belongings.
My training as a stager and designer with QC Design School has given me the knowledge and expertise that I will need to stage or design your home so that it is shown in the best possible manner. As a professional, I will make sure that you receive quality service from me at all times. I am a dedicated and hard-working individual who is willing to whatever is needed to get the job done.


Staging your home for sale is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. You want someone with the knowledge and professional attitude to guide you through that process with as little stress as possible. I am that someone.
In today’s market it is important to create the best possible impact on buyers or potential buyers.
Potential buyers have their minds made up within minutes of entering the front door, so creating a positive first impression is key when selling a home. Home staging can help you create this impression. Home staging is an important step when you are getting your home ready for sale. It is essential that buyers are in a space that allows them to more freely through the home. More importantly is that they are able to imagine themselves and their furnishing in this home. This is what can be accomplished through home staging.

I will help you design your home (whether vacant or lived in) from the inside out so that potential buyers will send more time viewing your home and more time imaging themselves living there.

As a staging professional, I have the trained ability to examine properties through a buyer’s eye. This will allow me to highlight a home’s assets while at the same time downplaying any challenges that may exist. I can make your “staged” home look move-in ready so that you are able to sell it quickly and get the best possible price for it. This staging process includes showcasing your home’s feature’s room by room. Your existing furniture, artwork and accessories will be coordinated to highlight each rooms function, focal points and proper traffic flow.
