Title: Decorating Supervisor

I was born in Denver, Colorado (Go Broncos!) and raised in Phoenix, Arizona (Go Suns!)  my love for design came naturally. Freshmen year of college was spent at Northern Arizona University (NAU) in Flagstaff, where I majored in journalism and communication. It was not until the summer following my freshmen year while helping a friend re-do her bedroom that I “painfully” discovered my love for interior design. It took me falling through a bookcase and breaking my foot to realize what my real passion was…. And the rest if history!!! I not only switched colleges but immediately switched majors. I spent the next 3 years fulfilling my love for design at Collins College, in Tempe Arizona. While attending college I started a staging company with my mom (a local real estate agent) where we helped homeowners sell their homes quickly and for top dollar! In May of 2008 I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design.


In September 2008, I decided to let my passion for design guide me to Houston, Texas. I spent my first four years working at Star Furniture, as a Display Designer where I was lucky enough to gain tons of hands-on experience as well as take part in the opening of multiple new locations for the company. In 2013 my love for design led me to new home design. I began working with high end production home builders and well as custom builders where I assisted their buyers with picking out all the interior selections for their new home. Backsplashes, flooring, and paint colors etc. soon became my new passion. In 2019 my love for visual design took over again, and I landed the Visual Design Manager position with American Furniture Warehouse, where I assisted in opening their first 2 Texas locations, Webster & Katy! I have been with Frontier since June 2021, where I was found a natural fit blending my love of beautiful new home construction and design, along with working with buyers’ hand in hand along the way while creating their dream home.
