1)     Why did you choose Interior Design?

I knew at a young age that I was meant to create beautiful spaces. The reason I love interior design so much, is the way it influences people, both physically & psychologically. There’s something so rewarding about hearing someone tell you how their new space makes them feel. We always strive for positive feedback, but the negative is even more valuable. It helps us grow and improve as designers. There’s never a perfect answer but we can always keep moving forward and experiment with new ideas and concepts. Design is always an evolution.

2)     Why did you join IIDA?

Living and working in a small town like Coeur d’Alene, there’s not very many opportunities to meet fellow designers. IIDA has helped introduce me to so many talented individuals. The networking is great, but more importantly I cherish the friendships I’ve made through IIDA.

3)     What is your favorite event that the IIDA hosts?

REVEAL & happy hour!

4)     Please tell us a couple interesting facts about you?

I’m first and foremost an interior designer, but I’m currently taking my architecture licensing exams and hope to finish them this fall. I’m also a dog mom of two fur-babies and I love to swim, bike, and run!
