About this pro
I believe my work stands out because I know how to bring the colors and style into alignment with who you are, what your story is, and create a room you will be proud to share with your friends, family, and co-workers, or simply a room to enjoy for yourself. I absolutely LOVE getting to know people! I like finding out what they like or don't like, what they love or don't love, and what desires they have for their lives and homes! I truly love the entire process from consult-brainstorming-creating-the final reveal! And the most affirming is the elated face on the individual when they've seen the final result! I enjoy making others happy!

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge $25/hr for my time spent on research and development, drafting, space planning, and designing. All communications are free of charge. The first home visit is free. Any further home visits per project are at an hourly rate of $25/hr. and can usually be completed within an hour. If you require painting services, I work alone, so my charge is $15/hr.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?No formal continued education. However, I follow design and architectural magazines, shows, and follow forums online.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?When I was in high school, one of my teachers moved into a house a few blocks from mine. She was renovating the house and asked me to mow her lawn. I started out mowing, and ended up peeling wallpaper, consulting on paint colors, and painting to help with the renovations. All that summer I had a BLAST! I had no idea what that line of work was called, but I knew that's what I wanted to do! So I looked into it, went to college for it, and now I'm working to make my passion my life long career!
