Why I choose this work
I believe in internal beauty vs externally constructed 'rules' for beauty. An image-based design industry has just never aligned with my purpose. It's not a design company that follows 'trends' or styles coined on TV or social media. That’s not to say I don’t appreciate a harmonious space, but an image-based design industry has just never aligned with my purpose.
Trusting this has led me to expanding on Four Walls. There is much more available through design than meets the eye. Our world is hyper aware of the superficial, but the energy, the chi, the 'ju ju' is always the driver. When clients explain their goals, I pick up on information through their vibe and use of words more than I could from a Pinterest post. My mission is to go deep into spaces, integrating the energy of our homes with the energy of our selves.
I have a foundation of over 13 years of experience in Architectural and Interior Design, both residential and commercial. 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).
Working in architecture was laden with tight deadlines and endless opportunities as a woman to prove your worth. I took work home with me, had problems sleeping, felt I was never enough and made little room for fun. This chronic stress attributed to being admitted to the hospital in 2011. I needed more balance in my life, leading me on a self-healing journey. During this, I was attuned to Usui Reiki, level 2 and have since been certified in Generational Trauma & DNA Healing.
As a ‘seeker’ I live and thrive through experience. Having gone to depths of my experiences spiritually, emotionally, physically and mentally, I’ve healed enough that I’m stronger and ready to serve others through the wisdom I’ve gained. A personal loss in 2017 led to my greatest breakthrough. I made the decision to live lighter, focus on healing, drop many limiting belief systems (with the help of friends and mentors) and go after what is best for my heart. Now I can bring all I’ve learned into people’s homes.
I'm a lover of nature, travel, creativity, yoga, coffee, ethical purchasing, volunteering and giving back. Most of all, I'm a lover of honest people with big hearts. I have a young son who keeps me on my toes, has shown me true love and is my greatest teacher. It's been a ride.
Thank you to all I have created with and will co-create with in the future!
