Proprietor, Principal Designer
I’ve been an Interior Designer since I was 11 years old. No, really! While my peers were asking for the lastest fashion trends for Christmas, I asked for the freedom to redecorate my bedroom. Fast forward to present day, my husband hears the same request at Christmas (and like most of my male clients, he doesn’t like it!). Despite all of the early artistic signs, I didn’t recognize my gift until after I completed my formal degree. I spent many years in Corporate America after finishing college at Hampton University. Although the traditional business world was not my calling, my experience working in Marketing, Communications, Real Estate and Customer Service gave me the foundation on which I later built my career. Style de Vie was created in 2002, and I can truly say that I have been pursuing my passion since then. As the Proprietor and Principal Designer of the firm – I am honored to be able to collaborate with our designers, design assistants, and clients to create beautiful spaces. It’s important to me that I connect with my clients, since Interior Design is such an intimate service. In order to deliver a home that speaks to my client’s personality, I must first understand it. My work has been featured in national and local publications, and I was even able to showcase my work on an HGTV program “Kidspace”. I have recently launched a design and lifestyle blog (Epiclifebydesign.com) and my goal is work as a spokesperson for lifestyle brands. I’d like to eventually launch a line of design accessories.
