What’s your interior design process?
A consultation / site visit is always first. I speak to the client about their wish list and scope of the project. I put the list to numbers and if necessary do a feasibility study to determine if their wants falls within their budget. We sign a contract for the work and then the schematic design, design development, and construction documents / permit drawings are made. Finish and furniture approvals are always brought to the client to ensure that it is the style the client wants. At the end of each phase I meet with the client for approval of the work and to ensure that everything is as they want. After the permit set is complete we enter the bid administration phase where we look at contractors , have them provide us bids and then choose a construction team and then we sign a contract. The construction begins and my team oversees that the contractor is following the drawings to the letter and is on schedule. Finally the project is complete!

What do you love most about your job?
I love meeting new clients, making them happy, and the freedom to take the projects that interest me! I also am grateful that every project is different, there is so much variety in what I do that I am never bored and there are always new challenges.
What inspired you to start your own business?
It has always been my goal to have my own business. I appreciate those that have the freedom to work how and when they want. I also had the burning desire to create something that was purely mine and to watch it grow. Creativity is a big part of who I am and I couldn't be happier about where life has taken me!
Why should our clients choose you?
I will work tirelessly hard for my clients until they are happy with the end result. My job is to be a consultant for my client and protect their vision and their property. This is why people hire architects! We draw up legal drawings with all necessary specifications that the contractor is legally and ethically bound to follow. The contract between the owner and contractor that the architect draws up is also a legal document that the contractor must follow or else. We protect our clients!
