Why I choose this work…
…to restore harmony in the environments where people live & work.
I have a foundation of over 13 years of experience in Architectural and Interior Design, residential and commercial as well as kitchens/baths and furniture. Chronic stress of tight deadlines and ego in Architecture attributed to being admitted to the hospital in 2011. I needed balance in my life. Learning to say no to demands led me on a self-healing journey, with many big life changes, on the way to achieving dreams. 7 years later - I can bring all I’ve learned into designing environments.
In this time I renovated two of my own homes, each time learning that just because something is popular and ‘trendy’ doesn’t mean it will feel good for me. The same lesson can be applied to so many areas of life. Interior design can sometimes feel superficial, focused on appearances, but the real value is more than meets the eye. It’s the - energy - chi - 'ju ju' - that is the driving force. When clients explain their goals, I pick up on who they are through their vibe and use of words more than I could from a Pinterest post. I go deep, integrating the energy of the space with the people that live/work there, ensuring they feel supported and inspired.
There is no question of my credibility, having gained certification with the National Kitchen & Bath Association(NKBA), Building Code Identification Number (BCIN), Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED), and other industry related memberships such as The Decorators & Designers Association of Canada (DDA).
I'm a lover of nature, travel, creativity, yoga, coffee, ethical purchasing, volunteering and giving back. I have a young son who keeps me on my toes, has shown me true love and is my greatest teacher. Most of all, I'm a lover of honest people with big hearts.
Don’t just daydream about your goals, let’s have some fun with it!
