“Cultivate an optimistic mind, use your imagination, always consider alternatives, and dare to believe that you can make possible what others think is impossible.”

— Rodolfo Costa

Project Designer

I believe each design should be as unique as the individuals who inspire it. Developing a comfortable working relationship through which the client’s needs and desires are discovered and exceeded is my goal. I believe actively listening to what a person has to say, along with hearing what they are not saying, is one of the most valued traits a designer can have, and I strive to do this every day. No matter the scope or budget of a project, every detail is important.

Education/Professional: I graduated with honors from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Interior Design and a minor in Business Real Estate. After I graduated, I moved to Kansas City where I first worked for an architecture firm, then a full scale design firm. At that firm, I managed design and remodeling projects, which helped me realize how much I enjoy designing remodeled spaces. With education in interior design and real estate, as well as a construction background, I’m able to combine my passions for design and construction.

Fun Stuff: I grew up in Cedar Falls. My construction background began as I worked alongside my Dad on every type of project imaginable, including spending a couple of summers shingling houses. I’ve been married for four years, and we have two dogs, Taylor and Bela. I’m a Green Bay Packers fan and have run the Green Bay Marathon. I enjoy the outdoors, learning new things and reading great books. And, of course, I always have a design project going on at home!
