I feel very fortunate to be a part of the design world, and privy to the ever-changing design trends and innovations happening around the world. I have always wanted to be a designer. Since I was young, I had an interest in architecture and the concept of space around me. I began my journey with ISI in April of 2014 as a designer apart of the retail design team. I enjoy working on company branding elements and various stages of concept development for our wonderful clients. It is amazing to work with a client and assist them in making
their brand identity stronger. By using a company's core values, goals for distinctiveness and vision, I get to be a part of the amazing transformation that creates a cohesive design that can solidify their brand. I earned by BFA in Interior Architecture + Design from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design in 2012. I was privileged enough to study abroad for a few weeks in Paris, France. The historical significance, iconic architecture, and breathtaking art inspired me and gave me new appreciation for the fine craftsmanship and intricate

details of design and architecture. Having a keen eye for details carries into my career and enables me to look at things differently as a designer. Previously working as a residential designer, I worked with clients on a very individualized basis, often times in their homes. I enjoy the interpersonal aspect of working with a client and enjoy the opportunity to listen and interpret their goals and visions. Making this world a better and aesthetically pleasing place is something I strive for in my career and as a person.
Born and raised a Wisconsin girl, I grew up in the small, historic town of Cedarburg about 20 minutes North of Milwaukee. Holding true to good old-fashioned Midwestern style, I love the outdoors, beer, and of course, the Green Bay Packers. I am drawn to the water and enjoy swimming, boating, and relaxing by my family's lake--or any body of water for that matter. Living in a state where winter takes up almost 3 seasons, I find it very important to enjoy the great outdoors while I can! I am very close with my family and enjoy spending time with them. As an only child, my mom and I have a very close bond. Sometimes we talk in our own language it seems!
Even though I like living close to home, the travel bug has also recently bitten me. Visiting out-of-state friends and family is usually a bi-yearly occurrence, but I hope to start planning bigger trips soon. Europe, Australia, and Alaska are all on my bucket list. I am a hard worker, and love working as an interior designer. As a child, I used to re-arrange my bedroom before I was barely able to move the furniture. I am a firm believer in the phrase "work hard, play harder" and strive for the balance to do both, because isn't that what life is all about?
