I am passionate about helping homeowners transform their life by transforming their space. As a degreed Interior Designer for 20+ years, I have worked with clients on various project types and sizes, providing my services at the stage and amount of support my clients need it. Whether offering ideas for a design REFRESH, rolling up my sleeves to RECLAIM a room that is overwhelmed with clutter, or RESTYLING a home to attract buyers; I act as a motivator, guide and advocate for my clients.
Why did I start Another Opinion?
Another Opinion is my opportunity to pursue the elements that have brought me the most joy over the years:
Help People ~ Empower Others ~ Directly Impact Someone’s Life ~ Learn Continuously ~ Give Back
Specifically, working with homeowners in a meaningful way is my intent. I practice a holistic and non-judgmental approach to supporting my clients with their projects. Together we establish goals and take a journey to achieve them.
The way our home make us feel is critical to our overall wellbeing. Another Opinion helps to seek positive change through Interior Design, Purge & Organizing and Home Staging.
My Guiding Principles:
- Do the right thing
- Believe in people
- Find joy in the journey
- I engage my client on their journey and I support them with my services.
- I guide my client as they define what they want and I help them achieve it.
- I prefer not to prescribe; but to inspire and empower.
Background and Experience:

With broad experience in both residential and commercial environments, I have assisted many clients with planning and implementing projects from single rooms to full buildings; with services including interior design, strategic planning, furniture and furnishings solutions, project management and contractor coordination.
