A bit about my history:

My love of art and all things beautiful started as a young girl. The daughter of an Interior Designer and entrepreneur/retailer, my mother gave me my own private education taking me to art museums, garden tours, plays and theater. I danced ballet for 14 years and studied at The California Ballet Company and School. My father instilled in me a strong work ethic and to pursue my dreams above all else. 

Upon graduation from SDSU (home town girl) with a degree in Interior Design and minor in Marketing, I started my profession in the Commercial Office Furniture Industry. I worked for prestigious companies such as Haworth, Knoll, BKM/Steelcase. Passionate about sales and marketing and building super performing sales teams, I enjoyed the 20 years I spent on this side of the business. I left this industry to pursue the birth of my own design and consulting firm and worked with wonderful clients on dream projects. With a yearning to get back to sales and marketing, I had the opportunity to join the exclusive and worldwide company, JAB/Stroheim. In 2009, I became an independent agent and launched the Representative side of A&D Studios. Today, I am very proud to say I represent the finest companies, offering the most exclusive products in Residential and Hospitality.  Luxury with a purpose; to make each environment unique to the space it’s installed in.

What I am passionate about:

Well-designed products that not only function well, yet are also the finest quality of their kind.

I love it when new collections arrive and I am able to touch, feel and envision those who I can’t wait to show it to! I am passionate about serving my customer and my industry with product knowledge and customer service that surpasses all expectations. I am elated when a designer specifies one of my products and lets me know that what they chose was perfect for their client and project.

Every day you’ve got to get yourself fired up!
