I have a great passion for working with furnishings, textures, placement, and balance within rooms. I love solving problems as to why a room doesn't work and tackling projects for which there don't seem to be any good solutions. I think outside of the box and delight in new challenges.
Although this is my passion, the early years of my career were spent in sales and marketing, and then as founder, President and CEO of two specialized temporary staffing firms. Even as my companies thrived, I found myself practicing home design and redesign techniques on friends and relatives--just for fun. I sold my businesses, and then my husband and I decided to sell our home during this market downturn. I hired an experienced stager to stage our home and was totally enamored of the process. This was an entirely new concept of design--combining marketing with interior design. To our delight, our home sold in five weeks and for more money than the realtor had originally wanted as a listing price.
In addition to being a graduate of the Sheffield School of Interior Design in New York, I am an HSR Certified Professional Home Stager and Redesigner, having completed the only accredited staging training course recognized by the Real Estate Staging Association (RESA). I am also a proud member of ASHR (American Society of Home Stagers and Redesigners) and RESA.
Today I bring the same passion and sense of fun I share with my friends, relatives, and clients. I truly love what I do and it never seems like work to me at all. I believe that everyone is entitled to live in an environment they love and are comfortable in. I sincerely believe in the power of staging a home to sell it quickly. Whether it is redesign, interior decorating, or home staging, I put my passion to work to accomplish great things for my clients.
