Hey there! While I love what I do as an interior designer and small business owner, I love my job outside of work.  I am a military wife and mother of 4. Before "my grown up life" my passion was soccer, I played soccer from the age of 5 through college, a great learning experience on teamwork and how to get through the highs and the lows of competitive athletics.  I still play soccer, even in my "old age". So now on the weekends, you'll find me on the soccer field playing or cheering on my kids, baking, at an estate sale or flea market, and spending time with my family. Family above all is what makes me the happiest, and by designing interiors, I have found that I can make a difference in people's lives by making their homes functional without comprising aesthetics. I hope to help you with your home too!
