All of the experience that I've had over the years has helped prepare me for my career in interior design:
I've managed fast food restaurants, convenience stores, and high end retail stores. This experience allows me to adapt very quickly to fast paced environments and various personality types.
My husband and I owned an operated a computer company specializing in business automation, networking and workflow. One of the projects became an internationally used software application. as VP of Operations, I was responsible for implementing the solution to thousands of end users at fortune 100 companies. I also developed and trained the sales and support teams to maintain it. This experience allows me to grasp very large scaled projects and break them into easily executed steps. as a bonus, I'm able to embrace technology and create efficiencies to work smarter, not harder. Automated systems allow for more time with the fun stuff!
We built the business to a nationally recognized brand and finally sold it in 2000. This much needed break allowed me to finally pursue my own dreams and go to design school. In 2002, I graduated from the American Institute of Interior Design and since 2003, I have been operating private design firms- first with a partner and now on my own. I am proud to say that 90% of my business comes from referrals, which is always such an honor.
My vision for the future of ModaScapes is to continue to build my team with people that have are committed to providing an amazing client experience, delivering products that have high quality and great value, in a fun and collaborative environment.
