How I can help you

I can help improve business performance in business planning, marketing, and operations.

As founder and sole proprietor of a successful, award-winning, local interior design firm for more than forty years,  I was able to work with clients to create beautiful and functional living spaces. I developed a skill set of creative thinking, an effective way of communicating, and problem solving.  My profession has given me the opportunity to partner with small businesses, corporations, and individuals in a broad range of projects and venues; including several of Washington’s most successful restaurants, offices, corporate headquarters, as well as private homes. I was a board member of the Metro chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). I hold a degree in fine arts from Boston University.

As a mentor for SCORE, I can provide practical advice to entrepreneurs. Let's get started!
