My professional career is design-focused with more than five years of apparel design experience. I received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fashion Design from Kent State University in 2016. From there, I was fortunate enough to work as a corporate apparel designer for five years at Abercrombie & Fitch. While fashion will always hold a special place in my heart, my love for design is far-reaching and the skills I developed along the way led me to interiors. I joined Grand Design Group in 2021 as their Studio Manager.
While my strengths are naturally more creative, I really enjoy managing the business operations as well. Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working at a couple of smaller design companies. Each of these opportunities opened my eyes to other aspects of running a design business that I found to be enjoyable such as sales, bookkeeping, marketing and social media. I especially love getting to know and work alongside our clients and help them in their design journey.
I believe art is synonymous with design, so when I’m not at work I like to spend my time painting (oils and acrylics) and sketching. Some of my other loves include baking, going on walks with my dog and being with family.
