Transforming Spaces. Transforming Lives.

I’m a mother, wife, sister, daughter, friend and interior designer/decorator. Since a young age, design and art have always been a passion of mine. My mother has always had an eye for design and our home was forever ‘show-home’ ready for any impromptu visitors. I guess you can say that design is in my blood. My signature design style and personal style is classic with a modern edge. Inspiration comes to me by sketching and pulling ideas, pictures and products together. This is my favorite part of the design process. I continue to challenge my design aesthetic by testing new ideas and throwing the unexpected into the design mix. I feel this keeps my designs interesting and fresh.

I received a full athletic scholarship to Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, LA. I studied and have my degree in Business Management and received my Masters of Science in Business. After a few years of working in the business arena I knew I wasn’t being creatively satisfied and took a sales management position with California Closets. There I got to explore my creative juices while helping the company with their overall sales, marketing and design. From there I went on to work with a local closet company called, Calgary Custom Closets. Here I was able to make a large impact on overall growth, product innovation and design. But being the person I am I knew I wanted more of a challenge and that’s when I joined a local renovation and design firm. For the past 5 years I have been designing and renovating kitchens, bathrooms, basements, additions and whole homes.
