I have always had a passion for interior design and architecture. Got my first Architectural Digest at age 10.
I attended Colorado Design Institute in Denver and went on to work in furniture stores and an architect & design firm. Then I found Thurstons and the kitchen and bath industry. I then joined the National Kitchen and Bath Association and became a Certified Kitchen Designer.
