I didn't take the traditional route to interior design, but am so glad to have finally arrived! With a bachelors degree in English and a masters degree in Education from Wake Forest, I have collected my share of interesting jobs over the years. A year spent waitressing in Los Angeles netted me plenty of star sightings (prized possession, an "autographed" table doodle by Anthony Hopkins), six months as an office assistant for a Congressman gave me a glimpse into the inner workings of our nation's capitol, and four years as a high school English teacher made me realize that a love of literature doesn't necessarily translate into skill at the blackboard! I finally realized my real love was design and earned a bachelor's degree in interior design from Western Carolina University.
Various projects of mine have led to features in magazines such as The Wacoan, WNC Magazine, Design*Sponge and an upcoming feature in Better Homes and Gardens. Our mission at Roost is to help synthesize our clients' tastes into a harmonious space. It's not about our personal taste, but helping our clients to discover the elements of an environment that bring them comfort and happiness.
I'm thrilled to call Asheville, NC home where I live with my two faithful office assistants, Deacon the German Shepherd and Daisy the hound dog. They actually aren't very helpful, but they asked for a job title, so I obliged.
