Then and Now:
I started designing clothes for myself and others throughout high school and college. I studied fashion design, home design, and art in college … but on the advice of my parents and school guidance counselors, I pursued the corporate world.
I spent many years in the corporate world in a business role interacting with major corporations. Despite my success, I always found the need to utilize my “creative juices,” and this creativity centered on remodeling my personal home during those years.
In 2006, I decided to leave the corporate world and join my husband Don in his home remodeling business. We started the business as handyman and home repairs, dispatching handymen to client homes. When one of my clients asked me to remodel her home, I was uncertain where to begin. I didn’t think I had the knowledge of working with specialty trades, updated design trends, or the ability to pull all the timelines and sub-contractors together. At this time, I realized all the overwhelm and uncertainty that homeowners must feel when they want to remodel their home. My friend insisted that I remodel her home and I found that all my design and business background flowed easily for me. I had found my niche.
It was this experience that caused me to make educating my clients on remodeling a mission for me. I started teaching classes, writing articles for my newsletter, and finally writing my book: Renovate, Remodel, Relax. Today, I teach at Home Shows, community centers, showrooms, and universities. In addition to designing for our clients, my husband and I manage the projects. In other words, we guide homeowners from the “how” to the “wow.”
I’m certified in Universal Design and bring a perspective to the project that many contractors don’t want to deal with. I’m a huge proponent of educating my clients about their options and helping them make their dream project a reality. I take the time to listen to your needs and desires and then design your project. I take the uncertainty and stress of deciding on the details for your remodeling project by providing specific recommendations on products and materials.
My goal is to help you create your dream project in a stress-free way. This happens through coordinated design, product selection, scope development, building services and an open line of communication with my clients. From the first meeting to the final walkthrough, my main concern is that you’re positively thrilled with the results.
