Interior Designer & Project Manager
What do you do for your company?
In my role as an interior design project manager, I am essential in coordinating many aspects of the project from start to finish. Some of the core skills I utilize daily include project planning, client communication, team coordination, budget management, resource allocation, quality control, risk management, and documentation and reporting.
Do you hold any NARI certifications?
How do you use your previous experience and/or education to do your job?
As interior designers, we’re accustomed to a wide array of project types, and remodeling only expands that horizon further. Each project presents unique challenges, allowing me to continually learn and grow. I find great fulfillment in learning and growing within the interior design industry, always aiming to exceed my own standards. With seven years of hands-on experience in both residential and commercial interiors, coupled with my formal education from the Texas State Interior Design Program, most days represent the culmination of my combined design journey. From space planning, budgeting, selections, specifications, presentations, drawings, and researching new methods or products, every aspect seamlessly converges into the work I do. In addition to my formal education, I’ve actively participated in student panels at Texas State and have been deeply involved in various professional interior design organizations. Interior Design is an immersive career, and I’ve found great value in staying engaged and connected within the central Texas design community.
What do you love about remodeling?
At my core, I am a problem solver, finding fulfillment in untangling complex challenges. Among the many gratifying aspects of my career, remodeling stands out as a chance to reimagine spaces, utilizing existing elements to exceed clients’ expectations. I believe that meticulous attention to interior architecture is pivotal in creating exceptional environments. When floor plans and designs are thoughtfully optimized, selections and finishes naturally fall into place with greater harmony. Witnessing the transformation from “before” to “after” is the most rewarding aspect of our part of the industry. Above all, my primary objective is to enhance our clients’ lives and establish enduring, safe environments for the future.
