What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I’m an interior designer and project manager in the commercial design field. I specialize in senior living and have really found my niche in this profession. My future plans include growing with my profession and always keeping up with the latest trends to better serve our vast and diverse client list. 

How do you unwind from a busy day in real estate? Spend time with my husband, Chad and play with my two young sons, Cole and Reed. I also volunteer at the Crisis Nursery and that puts things into perspective for me.  

Favorite book or author: “To Kill a Mockingbird”

One word to describe your work environment: Exciting 

Rules to live by in business: Always be honest, treat people with respect, and always admit when you are wrong; you will be more valued in the long run.  

If you could invite one person to dinner (living or dead) who would it be and where would you go? I would invite my Aunt Debbie to my house to meet my children. She passed away unexpectedly three months before my first son was born. She was so excited to be a great Aunt.  

What is your dream job? Owning a cute little gift shop somewhere with warm weather!
