I started an in-home consultation for kitchen and bath remodels and became involved in the installation and production process. Using the knowledge gained in that field, I was soon able to manage my own projects and work one-on-one with clients and installers on-site from start to finish. Since then, I have been able to expand my reach and work with clients all over the country as a designer for Cabinets.com. Our online presence gives me the opportunity to design with regional trends based on a client’s location and taste, which allows me to be creative with every design project.
I have received multiple industry awards for my design and rendering talents; most recently I won the “2022 Global Design Award - Panorama” and have become a professional member of the Design Advisory Council by 2020 Spaces.
Since graduating from Virginia Tech’s Residential Design Program in 2020, I’ve been working with a locally-owned, custom cabinet company out of Chesapeake, Virginia.
With 40+ years of business under their belt, Dave’s Cabinets [now Indigo Kitchen & Bath] brought me on as a Designer to tackle the rapidly increasing volume of projects during the pandemic.
Now 24 years old, I’ve had the privilege of receiving 1st Place in the NKBA’s Student Design Competition, working under two past NKBA presidents, and traveling to the national KBIS shows to work our partner’s booth.
I grew up in an awesome military family who gave me my love of watching baseball, going to the movies, and traveling to find unique places.
I’m a Disney junkie and an old soul, but good food always wins my heart.
My career path has quite a mix of different roles that helped me build my company's processes and succeed in guiding my clients through the design and remodel process. I've always been curious and interested in learning more. Even my vacation trips are a combination of relaxation and learning something new. Getting to learn client's lifestyle is my step 1 to achieve a project that will improve their quality of life.
