I'm a More than a Mom...
...and I have a strong suspicion you are too. If you're like me, you're a high-achieving professional, a kickass mom, you're successful in business, and you have a pretty full life.
Your home matters to you, and you want it to be a safe space to rest and recharge with your family. But in between board meetings, church commitments, travel with your partner, yoga classes, and cheering on your kids from the sidelines, there really isn't time left to decorate your home and keep your sanity.
You know how to prioritize your life and work, and your home is dropping lower and lower down your priority list. And avoiding it is stressing you out!
Here's what makes you different from others who are struggling, though: you're not afraid to ask for help. You understand the value of hiring professionals to get further in your work and life, and so do I. The right people in the right roles are worth every freakin' penny!
I'd love to help make your home a joy again! It's time to bust out of your boring home - without stress and overwhelm. Get started by booking a complimentary video consultation call.
Want the Full Story?
I’ve always wanted to be an interior designer. Even as a kid I knew there was something magical about spending time in a space that looked awesome, functioned perfectly, and was organized and uncluttered.
I used to ask my dad to rearrange my bedroom furniture because I was too small to move it myself. One summer, I spent every weekend trying out new furniture layouts. And I’ve lost track of how many times I re-painted my walls.
My path into the design world was pretty straightforward; I focused on art and design classes in high school, graduated from Sheridan College in Ontario, Canada with an honors diploma in interior design in 2005, and jumped headfirst into my design career in Toronto. I spent the next decade working for - and learning from - two of North America's leading interior designers, Kimberley Seldon (Toronto) and Betsy Burnham (Los Angeles).
I've also managed a high-end trim and fabric showroom, been a project manager at a couture drapery workroom, and was a set designer and stylist for a major west-coast home retailer. Oh, and I took a year off at age 25 to travel with a music ministry as a vocalist, too. I might look young - and I'll gladly take the compliment! - but I have 16 years of interior design experience behind me.
I have lived and worked in Toronto, Canada; Los Angeles, CA; Waco, TX; and now Macon, GA. My personal and professional travels have brought me to England, Scotland, France, and Taiwan. I'm a first-generation Canadian born to British parents, and I now live in the USA. As you can probably imagine, my love for adventure and travel has greatly influenced my interior design career and aesthetic sensibilities.
As an interior designer in Atlanta, I’m excited about designing spaces that push past the status quo. Women (especially moms, who are often trying to please everyone) frequently settle for safe when decorating. They're overwhelmed with design decision-making and find the process draining and defeating.
I’m committed to helping high-achieving moms bust out of boring because life is too damn short to waste it with beige walls! I'm a mom too - my kiddos are 3 and 7 - and I know how life-giving it is to thrive and recharge in a home you truly love.
Here's the #realtalk about why I want to help you bust out of boring. I lost my brother in a motorcycle accident at age 26 - and he missed out on so much possibility ahead of him. My father worked his whole life so that he could travel in his later years – and now he’s in an assisted living home and unable to do so. I’ve seen so many people I love not accomplish what they wanted to in life. And that sucks.
Listen up: you may not get more time in the future to create a home you love. You might not be healthy enough to enjoy your home for as long as you’d like. So screw beige. Screw safe! Let's play and have some fun with your home. You and your family deserve it.
Whether you're local and we get to meet face-to-face, or if you live elsewhere and we connect via email and video chat, the end result is still the same: a kickass home you're proud of without stress and overwhelm along the way.
I can't wait to be your creative, collaborative guide to help you bust out of boring and love where you live.
