To say I am passionate about design is an understatement – I am a self-proclaimed furniture nerd! Charles Eames once said, “The details are not the details. They make the design.” This quote has been the expression of my passion throughout my career. I received a BA in Interior Design from Central Washington University in 1997. After graduating I spent one year as a in house designer with a HON Industries Co, before I found my home at a Herman Miller dealership in Washington where I spent that last 19+ years working as a designer before moving into sales. In the fall of 2016 I relocated to Arizona for the sun and a new adventure!
