Why are you a member of IIDA?
I love meeting and collaborating with people who are passionate about advancing and supporting the interior design industry.  

What is your favorite IIDA event?
I just had such a blast at the March Happy Hour event! We spent a morning planting trees in the local community. It was a really fun way to give back, take action on our carbon impact, and make new friends from IIDA! I highly recommend attending a happy hour event!

What are you currently working on?
As a commercial tile rep, I work on projects in every market segment which I really enjoy! I’ve recently been working on several custom color, pattern, and mosaic developments. We have an incredible innovation lab at our factory in California and an in-house design team that nails it every time! 

What is your personal mantra?
“Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That’s why we call it ‘The Present’” – Eleanor Roosevelt

On a typical Saturday where can we find you?
I recently bought my first home and am deep in renovations so you will likely find me working on a variety of DIY projects, or outside enjoying the beautiful PNW!
