McCart - Home Redesign - Boston, MA, USA

Karen McCart

Boston, MA, USA


Have been in health care for over 30 years. Even though I am not formally trained in interior design, it is my passion, something that I am extremely talented at, and something that I would like to pursue in the near future. I have excellent administrative skills and would like to combine those skills working for a company involved with interior design, real estate -- home staging for sales, etc.
