I believe the job of a designer is not just to make things look nice. Instead, one should strive to create a space that not only looks great, but also makes sense for the people that live in it. A well designed space will be functional, possess proper flow and organization, and most importantly, reflect the personalities of the people that occupy it.
I hold an Associates of Applied Science Degree in Interior Design and have been working as a designer since 2012. Additionally I have a Certificate in Green Design and am a Certified Occupied Staging Specialist. I am a member of the Tidewater Community College Interior Design Advisory Committee and a former officer of the Oceanview Business Association. In the spring of 2019 I joined the faculty of Tidewater Community College as an adjunct professor in their Interior Design program. Additionally, I have been a design mentor for the Tidewater Builders Association Dreaming of Design Contest and worked on hand renderings for Homearama.
