What steps do I need to take to reach my dream of becoming an Interior Designer?
First, you need drive. You have to want to work! Second, education. My team and I all put our education first by getting advanced degrees, internships, and work experience under our belt before landing our roles as designers.
What do you enjoy about your career?
I love that all of our clients are so excited about their projects and that every day is different.
Does interior design work allow you to have a social life, too?
Running a design firm is all-consuming, however, I make sure to set aside time for friends and family. Having a balance of incorporating things you love such as cooking, travel, exercise, writing, and photography is important.
What was a hurdle you had to overcome to get to where you are today?
The process of opening a design firm and a retail space requires juggling schedules and people. While we have had to divide and conquer to get the work done, the effort has been worth it.
