Growing up a local Georgia girl, I took my first Interior design class at McEachern High School. I really enjoyed it, 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, I transitioned to focus 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 for 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 three other siblings and 12 nieces and nephews.

Growing up in a military family, I moved a lot—Hawaii, Boston, San Francisco, Augusta, Melbourne (Florida, that is). I often felt like an outsider, but that was okay. It afforded me the luxury to watch life and process the world with a unique lens. This experience is part of what makes me the designer I am today. I graduated with a liberal studies degree with three minors—Studio Art, Criminal Justice, and Humanities. Go figure. I attended the University of Central Florida, one of the largest schools in the nation, but they lacked a design school. I was not dissuaded. I took classes simultaneously at a local design school studying AutoCAD and hand drafting and cut my teeth post-graduation as a Design Assistant. Next up, the Pratt Institute for a master’s degree in interior architecture and design, where I then worked for Viserius Studio, focusing on hospitality, restaurants, and international work.

Heading south, I landed at C+TC Design Studio. Now, I’m rooting for the Vickers Design team. Inspiration comes from life, nature, and travel. I seek the details with a vigilant eye, questioning how or why something works, taking note of patterns and movement. With clients, we start with their vision, distill a concept, and birth design from that concept. Collaboration reigns, and that’s how I like it. I love pushing myself toward the discovery of unexpected growth. That’s why I travel, scuba dive, sail, and cook (when time permits). And you’ll rarely find me without Molly, my furry partner-in-crime.
