Interior Designer / Selections Coordinator
How did you arrive at WCDB? What path brought you here?
I was working in estimating for multi-unit, new construction bids and was looking for something more creative with a larger variety of projects. Nothing is cookie-cutter about any of our jobs or designs at WCDB and that is exactly why I love it.
What are you known for professionally? What do you have a knack for?
Finding the balance between functionality and aesthetics as well as managing the purchasing aspects of a project to keep the job on budget and on schedule.
Who have you worked with in the past? And what have you done for them?
My first internship was for a residential interior designer in Pittsburgh. Shortly after college, she hired me on as her assistant. When I moved to the eastern side of PA, I started with a Kitchen and Bath supplier. My job was a mix of residential kitchen design and estimating for multi-unit apartments and retirement communities.
What are you most passionate about professionally? What most excites you about your work & the contribution you can make?
I love to design kitchens the most. It’s like a giant puzzle to fit in all the components the homeowner is looking for, but still be functional and beautiful. Aside from that, I pride myself in knowledge of materials and finishes and pulling the whole design together.
What are you passionate about personally? What do you really enjoy? What can’t you stop talking about
Camping, hiking, and exploring. I also have a portrait and wedding photography business.
Where can we find you when you’re not working? What’s your favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon?
If I’m not shooting a wedding or portrait session, I’m probably in a hammock somewhere in the woods.
