At Roy's since: 2015

Education, experience and professional affiliations: 
I also taught at DePaul University for 8 years. I've always been interested in creative fields, working in Catering Management, Business Administration and Operations as well as other specialized retail and sales. Ever since I can remember, I've had a passion for design. I was able to dive into this field when I worked with a designer friend. A year later, I was hired at Roy's Furniture as a Design Associate.

What is your signature style?

My style is constantly changing and evolving, incorporating new ideas and concepts. I love to mix mediums such as mid-modern and contemporary with rustic and industrial. I recommend keeping one design as the main base and adding small touches to avoid a hodgepodge of styles. Keeping your look eclectic allows you to create an impact without having to constantly make changes in the future.

Where do you find inspiration?  

Inspiration is found in every day elements, whether it is created by people or nature.  Photographs are also a huge inspiration since they can capture ideas, textures and colors you wouldn't have thought of.
