Bachelor of Fine Arts, Interior Design Iowa State University
My favorite piece of furniture is Orla by Cappellini for Haworth. I love the curves and elegant design.
MY PATH IS MY OWN.
We were in the throngs of the Recession when I graduated from Iowa State University, so my intentions of working in the furniture world were cut short. I was fortunate to find a position in store planning at Walgreens’ corporate headquarters. I gained invaluable experience in a completely different, yet fascinating, part of the interiors industry. I learned about retail strategy, merchandising, store fixtures, and material application.
When the economy recovered I was able to find my way back to the furniture industry where I have enjoyed expanding my knowledge base in the many ancillary manufacturers that have taken the market by storm.
