get to know me

My background includes an Associate of Arts Degree in Interior Design, plus over 33 years of kitchen and bath, interior design and home remodeling experience.

When I begin working with new clients - a relationship often prompted by a referral from a pleased former client – I quickly earn their trust. I make it clear that we are partners in pursuit of that ideal space that will be created and enjoyed for years.

Whether designing the ultimate kitchen, a luxurious bath or creating that ideal home-entertainment environment, I create personal elements that make each project unique. From the start, my primary focus is on helping my clients envision their dream and achieve it.

Having remodeled many areas in my Janesville home, I understand the need for a well thought out, well planned road map that will achieve the desired results. My first hand experience enables me to guide and support my clients through the necessary inconvenience and challenges inherent in any home remodeling project.

Testimony to my creativity and design abilities, my own home has been featured in a number of national magazines. I share my expertise through articles published in national publications, and I am quoted often in local newspaper and magazine articles.

February 2010 I was awarded the "Most Outstanding Contemporary Kitchen Design" by Sub-Zero/Wolf International Design Contest 08/09 as a Regional Winner and later that month I presented my project at "The Breakers" in Palm Beach, Florida at the National level.

14 industry awards in the 2006-2009 Wisconsin/UP chapters of the National Kitchen and Bath Association's "Dreams to Reality" design contests recognized my work. I won first place awards 6 of those times for Residential kitchens, baths and other rooms...

My leisure interests including cooking, golf and spending time with my husband Tim, especially our seasonal drives in our convertible. We are parents to adult children, twin sons, Ryan and Andrew and a daughter, Jennifer. As a seasoned traveler, I am especially drawn to the inviting warm waters of the Caribbean islands.

I am widely known for being forthright and honest and placing my client's best interests first. Watching a design come to life and seeing the joy it brings are my greatest rewards for a job well done.
