In 2014 I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Interior Design from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh where I focused my studies on the relationship between our natural and built environment, and their impacts on our overall well-being. I believe that we are all products of our environment, and just as nature can be restorative, so can interior spaces - even more so when we bridge the divide between the two. Through a thoughtful, tailored approach to each project, I develop a comprehensive design based on the unique lifestyle needs, style and budget of my clients. My main objective is to provide more than a surface-level aesthetic - it's to guide the way my clients will thrive within their space while being mindful of how design elements are sustainably sourced. I enjoy sharing with others the benefits of space planning and organization so they may focus on their priorities and the pleasures of living simply.
Working primarily in Pittsburgh and Boston, and remotely with clients nationwide, I've completed over 200 residential, commercial and retail design projects in collaboration with The New England Aquarium, Kelly Custom Furniture & Cabinetry, Thomas & Williamson, Laurel & Wolf, and ZEN Associates, Inc.
As a New England native, I have a deep appreciation for conservation and preservation, and enjoy salvaging/repurposing found objects and discarded furniture for reuse. In April of 2020 I launched Chalks∞Landing on Etsy where my art and handmade décor are available for purchase. I'm currently based in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
