Making the world a better place is important to me, and of all my volunteer work over the years,

I have a special place in my heart for


an organization that finds families for homeless children

around the world.

Please visit their website

to see how you can

make a difference

in the life of a child.

Shoot me an email if you're interested

and I'll make sure I let you know when I schedule my next field trip!

Get in touch with me  soon so you can

come home to beautiful every day!

If you're dreaming of "beautiful," but feel design-challenged, too busy, or overwhelmed by the number of decisions you need to make, call or email me.


Instead of living in a space that frustrates you, let me help you create your own gourmet kitchen, master bedroom retreat, "spa-licious" bathroom, or whatever else you're dreaming of.


I'll save you time, money, headaches and the uncertainty of trying to figure it out on your own.


And I make it all easy so you can relax and enjoy the process, confident that you’re going to love your new space when it's finished.
