My passion explodes when I get the opportunity to help professional women create an interior space that fits them and their lifestyle, whether it's her home or office. After enjoying a successful 20-year career in the investment business, I decided it was time to honor my God-given gift of design. I returned to UW River Falls to get a four-year degree in broad area arts and design.
I reside in Woodbury with my husband of 33 years, Arlyn. We have one adult son and a fantastic daughter-in-law.
