Tell us about yourself.
I grew up in Franklin, Tennessee. My mom’s side of the family has a long line of Mississippi State graduates, so I decided to follow suit. After graduating, I moved back to Nashville for my Interior Design internship and continued to work at a commercial Interior Design firm for several years. I moved to Jackson about a year and a half ago to be closer to my boyfriend, a Jackson native.
What made you pursue a career in Interiors?
Growing up I always had a passion for design. I loved going to the Parade of Homes with my mom every year and admiring the best designed homes. I also remember walking into hotels or restaurants and drooling over the different materials used, accent lighting, or furniture. I knew I wanted to be a part of creating special spaces for other people.
What’s the best thing about being on Team WBA?
Our office is full of so many different personalities and everyone has their own strengths. I enjoy being challenged by each of them, pushing me to be a better designer. I feel very fortunate that I can say I enjoy everyone I work with.
What’s the most challenging aspect of your job?
One challenge an interior designer always comes across is gaining enough trust from the client to let you execute any of the crazy ideas you may have for their project. Luckily, 3D rendering programs like sketch-up makes it a little easier for the client to envision the space how we see it, however, it can still be a challenge!
