I have been passionate about art & design since childhood, with vivid memories of studying my mother’s Southern Living magazines as a child to “design” my own bedroom. I spent the previous 15 years teaching art & 2D design while my four children were young. During that time, I became an artist & nationally recognized teacher, earning a Master of Arts degree with an emphasis in painting and interior design. As a design consultant for Tyson Furniture, I enjoy getting to know my customers and building relationships. I’m often told by my clients that I listen well to their specific needs & translate them into beautiful personalized interiors. I’m ready to work together toward your new project goals!
I have been in the Furniture Industry for 35 years. I feel fortunate to have been with Tyson Furniture for 27 of those years. We are a family here, as many people have been with Tyson's for 20 plus years. With over 70,000 sq. feet of showroom, we can offer a variety of styles for our customers. Tyson's best advertisement is word of mouth as we have repeat customers. In my spare time I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family. I am glad to help you make your home beautiful as this is "Where beautiful homes begin".
I grew up in rural upstate NY and moved on to earn my BFA in Illustration at the Rhode Island School of Design. In 2015 I relocated to WNC where I began my career in Furniture and Design.
Traveling and residing in different environments has shaped me into an individual that has a true appreciation for style, art and design. My affection for color, texture, pattern, and spacial planning is applied to create a personalized vibe in a room or home. From old homes filled with antiques, to a modern space with clean lines, I love working with all of my client’s individual tastes, lifestyles and visions.
I started in the design field in 2002. Working in both commercial and residential interiors.
I take the time to listen to each client and develop a plan combining design and function to make their home a place they want to share with their friends and family. To entertain and to live in.
Using a mixture of colors, textures and lighting to reflect the clients personalities and suit their design needs.
I really believe that you should love every piece that you bring into your space. Your home should feel comfortable and inviting and really reflect your own unique personality.
In 2009 I was chosen to design the interiors for the DIY Blog Cabin. Featured on the DIY Channel, HGTV and in Coastal Living magazine.
Whether classic or contemporary I will strive to exceed your expectations.
I currently live in Burke County with my husband, my daughter and my dog. In my spare time, I like to hike, cook, craft, and spend time with my family. Growing up in Lenoir, I was born into a big family of furniture craftsmen. Furniture is in my blood. I’m a NC native and I graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Communications. I really enjoy getting to know my clients and designing spaces that make them happy. I have been with Tyson Furniture for 8+ years. This is the most family-oriented company that I’ve ever worked for and I love helping the wonderful customers we have here.
As a Black Mountain native, Tyson's holds a special place in my heart as well as the heart of this town. It’s an honor to work in such a family oriented place while creating family spaces for you and your family Since 2016. I reside in Black Mountain with my two lovely daughters, who bring me incredible joy. We enjoy cooking, hiking, camping, music and art together.
As a service minded creative type, I love working in a family environment. Originally from Virginia, I began as a retail furniture buyer and transitioned into kitchen and bath design after moving to the coast of NC. In 2007, my husband and I moved to WNC to be closer to family and I eventually found my way back to Home Decor. I've been with Tyson Furniture since 2011 and the wealth of knowledge here is invaluable. When I'm not working, I enjoy cooking and spending time with family, especially near the salty air of the sea, or hiking in these beautiful mountains.
I have lived my adult life in Hickory NC, the original Furniture Capital of the World. I have been in the furniture business for 17 years, 8 of those years with Tyson Furniture.
I enjoy building a rapport with customers by asking probing questions and utilizing effective listening skills. I specialize in custom designs, from a single piece of furniture to an entire house. My career has been built on making lifelong friends with my customers. The most heartwarming experience of being a design consultant is the smiles in the after pictures.
