My staging journey began in 2008 when I was one of many homeowners across the country trying to sell real estate during the housing market crash. I had staged my condo and successfully sold it with minimal loss during a time when condos weren't selling at all.  I experienced firsthand the power and hope that home staging can provide and I really knew I was on to something!

Over the years, my career has led me into various roles in marketing and the interior design industry, and staging and design has proven to be the career I always wanted.
