NKBA Member“I’m able to use my unique perspective to create dynamic kitchen and bath designs that have lots of movement and energy. Each client has their own style and identity; my goal is to incorporate their wish list, their style, and their imagination into my creative design ideas. Together, we create a very special relationship as we develop the project. Communication is essential, as is the ability to really listen to your client’s wants and needs. "
