- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
We arrange for a first call or visit (free of charge), and they tell me their story: what their goals are for the project, what they like and dislike. We talk. I go over how I work: I have a step-by-step process, and you can hire me for all or any part of the process. After the meeting, I put together a custom quote based on our conversation, and send it off. I don't quote a fixed rate because everyone's needs are different! I pride myself on creating something just for that client from the beginning.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a BS in interior design/architecture, and an MS in management. I am an NCIDQ licensed interior designer.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?
I earned my bachelor's in interior design at a school with a great interiors program. From there I went to work at in Philadelphia, at a large, international architecture firm doing commercial interiors in corporate, higher education, and retail design. I was lucky to get great experience on some pretty cool projects. I did my first residential project there and loved it. After moving to Connecticut and having my kids, I struck out on my own, and am so glad I did! I've been designing for over 20 years, and I still get such satisfaction from what I do.
