What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
A lot of reading and inquiring. Some things online, also. Always looking for new and fresh ideas.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I had been doing this for years in another field and decided to do what I kept saying, "I should start my own business doing this!"
What types of customers have you worked with?
Staging condos and vacant businesses and homes.
Decorating for events and projects, many surrounding holidays.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
A condo that had nothing in it and had a few problem areas. I was able to go in and start with nothing and create an atmosphere from the artsy, modern and professional environment that fit the surroundings and location. I followed this job through and updated
with seasonal changes and
an occasional change up in decor or
furnishings. I kept in contact with the
owners and received updated
information through long distance
communication via phone, text and email.
I am very pleased that this property
recently sold and happy to have been
involved in the process.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Be open to new ideas and to this new concept. Look at the options you have and spend time speaking with providers to get an idea and feel for their work.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
How conscientious I am and how serious I am about my work. How much I love creating and seeing the end results! How much fun I'm having! I believe you should love what you do!
