Interior Design is a captivating industry that I am so excited to be associated with. Not only do you need to have a passion for design, but also the creativity that will set you apart from the rest. When I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2001, I had my heart set on kitchens and bathrooms. Many would argue that these are the two most important areas of the home, and they need to be functional, comfortable, and stylish! I started my career as a Cabinet Designer at Kansas City Millwork. It was here where I learned the ins and outs of the business. Utilizing 20-20, a great cabinet based software, I provided our clients with 3-dimensional drawings to help them visualize their space. In February of 2005, I started working for McCray Lumber as a Cabinet Department Manager. I hired 2 designers to work with me to grow our business. We put together a 2000 square foot showroom to display our variety of products. I worked on remodel, new construction, and multi family projects providing my customer with cabinetry, countertops, and installation. In February of 2008, I continued my career as Cabinet Department Manager at Morgan Wightman Supply Company. It was here where I had the opportunity to work on the Whiteman Air Force Base. We provided cabinetry and countertops for over 300 new homes in Knob Knoster, MO. This project required me to be very detailed and organized as the builder worked on a very tight schedule. Over the years, it became apparent that I particularly favored residential remodeling. There is just something about walking into a space, and visualizing its greater potential. This led me to my next position as Design and Sales Consultant at House & Renner Construction. Here, I worked mainly with remodel projects, providing space planning, layouts, and helping the homeowner select cabinetry, countertops, plumbing, tile, wall color and many other aspects in their project. In October of 2013, I started the most important job one could have, I became a Mommy! It was then that my husband and I decided I would stay home to raise our son, but I would start my own design business so I could have the best of both worlds. I am so grateful for all of the experience I have had over the last 13 years. Because of my background, I feel I can capture the clients tasteful style and create a space that is beyond their expectations. I am also pleased to be an Associate Member of the Interior Design Society. You can click on their logo below to read more.
