"I’ve heard it said that life is a series of choices. In my choice to practice interior design, I would take that philosophy one step further: I think life is also a series of experiences. This profession is more than a job to me – it is a way of life. It is my hope that if I can help improve someone’s experience through a thoughtfully and artfully designed interior, then life is made that much more joyful, and my clients can concentrate on the big stuff like raising their families, excelling in their careers, staying healthy, and treating themselves when daily life calls for a time out.
This is why I don’t limit my practice to a single project type. I enjoy residential design as much as commercial design and believe one’s experiences at home, in a place of business or at a favorite hotel or restaurant all combine to make up a balanced and gratifying life.
I am a good listener, a stickler for details, and am used to working under tight deadlines. I understand a budget is a budget, but like to think my design solutions are never a compromise on function or style."

"After job shadowing Leslie a few years ago, I gained an even greater appreciation and interest for residential interior design and building client relationships. Fast forward to the Spring of 2020. I completed my Interior Architecture degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with an added passion for graphic design.
Part of my love for interior design is due to an aesthetic improvement of a given project space, however, the ability to improve how someone functions in their environment, is equally as rewarding.
As a Whitefish Bay native, I enjoy all of the outdoor running paths, local restaurants, and having the ability to work on projects in my own backyard."
