My Story: 
I began designing kitchens in 1997 at a box store and was self taught with the assistance of the cabinet reps. From there, I worked for a design firm in St. Charles IL until circumstances brought me to Dubuque. Due to the housing recession, I found that designing kitchens would not be able to provide for me and family so I found work in a different field. During this time, I also decided to take online classes towards a degree in kitchen and bath design for which I am one internship away from completing. My design experience includes both small and large spaces and I have designed many a kitchen that I have pride in.

My Favorite Part of My Job: 
I love working with the homeowner to help them imagine their dream spaces.

What Set's Me Apart: 
I actively listen to my customers with the ultimate goal of giving them exactly what they imagine. If my customer does not have an idea in mind, I get to know them and their style preference and design accordingly. My designs center around the customer's wants and needs and not my own, I only offer suggestions based on conversations that occur between us. I feel that I am easily able to build a repertoire with the homeowner so that the design process goes smoothly and is enjoyable.

My Passions/Hobbies:
My family, friends and especially my children are my passion. My hobbies include crafts such as crochet and diamond painting.
