When she is not working or at Husker games, she enjoys traveling, golfing, and spending time with her family.

What do you like most about your job?
I love the fact that every day and every project is different. My clients are some of the
nicest, most interesting people, and they all deserve to have their own unique look. There are so many, awesome products on the market now, and it’s exciting to see more new things every day! I strive to create the space that fits your needs. If you don’t walk
into your home and love the way it looks and feels, I haven’t done my job!

What inspires you to design?
I am very enthusiastic about design! I love the fact that everyone’s needs and likes are different. I love to be challenged to figure out a new design that I haven’t seen, yet. Design is always changing and growing. After all these years, there is no better feeling than walking into a home or office and seeing a happy client!
