Growing up a local Georgia girl, I took my first Interior design class at McEachern High School. I really enjoyed it then, but upon graduating I decided on a business major. It wasn’t until I moved to Chattanooga that I fell in love with the arts and the interior design program at The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. I graduated with a double minor in Business Administration and Entrepreneurship with a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. Once done, I completed an internship at CWC Chattanooga, which led to my first job at CWC back home in Atlanta.

After three years in the furniture industry, Rule, Joy, Trammel + Rubio (RJTR) Architecture and Interior Design firm offered me a position as an Interior Designer where my focus was on corporate interiors, tenant improvement, senior living and multi-family housing projects. I’m happy to be with a firm now that allows me the opportunity to fulfill my passion on special projects like breweries and restaurants.

In my free time, I enjoy anything outdoors-hiking, rafting and trail running. I love to travel my home state of Georgia and explore all it has to offer. I’m active with my local church serving in the children’s ministries and volunteering to serve the community with different ministries the church provides. I also have a twin sister, along with 3 other siblings and 12 nieces and nephews.
