Candidate Statement
My hope is to bring a new perspective to our Chapter. I have been a designer in a commercial furniture dealership, architectural firm and now as a commercial furniture representative, covering multiple manufacturers. Been in leadership positions since college and feel it is my responsibility to give back to my profession and help others find our value. In todays “instant” reward, I would like to bring our specialty of serving our community and providing education to clients that Interior Designers are so much more than pretty.
