What advice would you offer for women just starting out?

Dream big, work hard and be disciplined, because it will all be worth it. Figure out what your strengths are and what excites you. With those in mind, create a big picture, setting targeted goals and then integrate those goals into a timeframe. That way, you’re always working toward goals you’re excited about. Be confident that your ideas and designs are just as good as anyone’s but know that you won’t always have the answers to everything—the learning process never ends. And always be ready to change directions when necessary—you never know what’s on the horizon.

How do you measure your success as a designer?

Happy clients. We strive to create designs that are not only beautiful, but high functioning. And there’s nothing better than a client beaming with pride over their new space. When clients are satisfied enough to refer or introduce us to family and friends, it’s rewarding and tells us we’re doing a good job. Collaboration is also a major component of our success. As a full-service, custom architecture, construction and interior design provider, our team consists of professionals from a variety of disciplines, who work together seamlessly to deliver each individual client’s wants and needs.

What do you look forward to when you go to work every day?

Meeting all of our different clients, each of whom have their unique styles and personalities. Improving on our craft every day, whether it’s implementing new design trends, sharing innovative products or cutting-edge technology. And the exhilaration of seeing a project completed, from the first sketch to the end of construction—you never get tired of that feeling.

“There’s nothing better than a client beaming with pride over their new space.”
