I was born…

In Maumee, Ohio about 45 minutes from Detroit, Mich.

My favorite thing about Arizona…

Is the fall and winter. Sunshine all day with crisp cool air is so enjoyable!

I’m listening to…

“Royals” by Lorde.

My family…

Is still very young, with a 4 year-old daughter and 1 year-old son. Needless to say they keep us pretty busy.

If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be…

Jonathan Adler. I love his cheeky sense of Design and would love to pick his brain.

One thing I cannot live without…

Is Diet Coke. I know it isn’t good for me, but I just love it!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

An artist of some sort. Painter, potter, sculptor.. I didn’t care, as long as I could be creative.

I’m inspired by…

People who obtain success doing something that they love.

The one person who motivates me is…

My mom. She always looks at the bright side no matter what is thrown her way. She is such a positive role model that always taught me there isn’t anything a woman can’t do.

If I could change anything in the world, I would be…

To eliminate discrimination. If everyone was as open to new things and people as a 3 year-old, the world would be a much happier place.

The perfect day would be…

A day at the beach with my husband and two kids, with a Diet Coke in hand of course.

My first job…

Was a cashier at a local hardware store in Maumee, Ohio.

My favorite escape is…

The beach. I prefer Hawaii or the Caribbean.

My life…

Is blessed with a wonderful husband, two beautiful children and a job that I love. I couldn’t be luckier.

I’m currently working on…

A few Interior Design projects for various clients.

Always…

Cherish the moments with your little ones. They grow way too fast.

Never…

Be afraid to say “I love you,” people need to know how much you care.

Favorite Quote:

“I like pretty things and clever words”

Biggest Dream…

Is to be discovered by Oprah! This way I can share my designs with the world.

My Pet Peeve(s)…

Toilet seat covers (bacteria traps), burnt food, morning people, running, know it alls.
