Holistic Home Interior Design Consultant
My love for design began at an early age -- both by nature and by nurture. I grew up in a 275-year-old Colonial farmhouse in coastal Connecticut where my parents gave me my first look into the world of home design that was to become my passion.
I now work with busy families to design an eco-friendly, serene and healthy home that allows for functionality, sense of place and peace of mind.
On a personal level, it took a chronic diagnosis for me to learn more about the benefits of a slower lifestyle and to incorporate wellness-focused interior design into my life. It was this need for happiness in my surroundings that became vital for my own health journey.
The support of my family and the serenity and comfort of my home has been so incredibly important to managing my well-being.
I hold a Bachelor of Art degree in Interior Design and a degree in Hospitality Management from the University of New Haven and a certification by the Wellness Within Your Walls educational program.
I believe strongly in the need for historic preservation. I was an Executive Co-Chair of a two-year fundraising effort to restore the 200- year-old Congregational Church in Killingworth, Connecticut. I also serve as Secretary on the Historic Review Committee which oversees the applications for demolition of historic properties. I also write for various decorating publications and for the Association of Lodging Professionals member newsletter.
I also enjoy scouring antique and vintage stores to find hidden gems. As an art lover and historic home and hotel fanatic, I love to explore and tour historic hotels, estates, gardens and museums.
I am blessed with a wonderfully supportive husband, son and daughter. I also derive much joy from my two dogs, Snuggles and Ginger. I’m grateful to do what I love, and I take pride in my ability to design with empathy, heart, with an ever-acute eye on wellness.
