How was your interest in interior design sparked? My childhood coloring books are what really got me interested in color and design at an early age. But, the television show “Trading Spaces” is probably what really defined that interest as a passion for interior design!

Experience/Qualifications: I earned a BFA in Interior Design from Iowa State University. I worked 4 years as a Design Assistant at Omaha Interiors and Design, 3 years as a Designer at Sheridan Decorating, and 5 years as the Showroom Specialist at Pella Windows and Doors before joining the team at Interiors Joan and Associates.

What is your favorite spot in your own home? My bed! I also love my “library” reading room.

Community Involvement: Having just moved back to Omaha from Chicago, I’m excited to get involved in the community and serve the organizations that I am passionate about!

Design Tip: Be true to yourself. Trends may come and go, but only you know what works in your home, fits your lifestyle, and gives you joy. If there is one place in this world that should make everyone happy – it’s their home.
