How was your interest in design sparked?
I have always had an interest in architecture and design. The ability to create environments that bring people together and generate energy is key.

I earned my bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from UNL and established myself in 1993 as a designer in Omaha. I have received The Bala Award (Best in American Living, 2010) and several ASID awards, including Best in Show (2014).

What is your favorite spot in your own home?
Our great room. Sun floods this space drawing me to it all year round. I also like the ambiance that a fireplace offers on a cold and snowy winter day.

Design Tip:
Less is more! I like rooms to be serene and harmoniously balanced as too many strong elements demand your attention.
