What are the three most important lessons you have learned building your business?
The benefit of working as part of team. The value of being very thorough and well organized. The importance of treating people with respect.

What is a day like in your heels?
In a word, varied. Many days are spent meeting with clients in the design studio or at their home, and doing design work. On other days, I trade in my heels for work boots and head to the project job site to confirm measurements or check on general progress. I enjoy being hands-on.

On those impossible days, what motivates you to keep going?
My optimistic outlook and my passion for helping translate a client’s design ideas and functional needs into something that looks beautiful and performs perfectly.

What advice would you give your children about running a successful business?
Always treat others the way you want to be treated and never stop learning.

What is your guilty pleasure?
Travel. I love to explore new places and be newly inspired.
