Her vast work experience also include, sales, marketing and business development consulting, for both large and small companies. She founded her own company, Design Therapy LLC in 2010, when she realized her true passion was helping people with their “design issues,” working closely with clients to ensure that the final result is an environment they truly enjoy living and working in. Functionality, comfort and beauty are all integrated into her design work and she believes that an unlimited budget isn’t necessary to create a beautiful space.
