When I walk into a room, I can’t help but envision ways to improve it. It’s nothing against the current room’s design — I just like to imagine other possibilities. I particularly love to learn a client’s style, in order to figure out the best way to marry that style with a room’s best features.
Childhood visits to art museums in and around New York City with my mom introduced me to an array of art styles, color palettes, materials and ways of thinking. After graduating from Smith College with a B.A. in Art History, I became an Assistant Vice President at Sotheby’s Auction House in Manhattan, where I headed the Investor Relations department and then became an art-market statistician. Those years offered daily opportunities to see art and fine furnishings ranging from masterpieces to fun collectibles.
In 2004, I took a position as a personal assistant/household manager for a NYC-based family. In this role I often worked closely with my employer’s interior decorator, and I fell in love with residential interior design.
In 2020 I earned a certificate in Interior Design from Parsons School of Design. My classes included Interior Lighting, Basic Interior Space Planning, Color Theory, the History of the Interior Room, Interior Rendering and Shading, Basic Drafting, and Residential Interior Design. I’m also proficient in the computer-aided design programs SketchUp and Revit.
I live in New Jersey with my husband and our three daughters, and volunteer with the local PTO and the Girl Scouts of America.
