About 

After graduating from LSU in 2012, I jetted off to New York City to begin my hopeful interior design career. While I will always consider it to be the most exciting year of my life, I knew it wasn’t a permanent fit for me. I returned back to Louisiana before deciding to make the big move to Los Angeles, completing the east coast, gulf coast, west coast trifecta. Along the way, I have been able to gain experience working in many different typologies of design including: retail, institutional, healthcare, education, and theatrical design. I am currently seeking a new career opportunity in the retail and hospitality realm and am excited to start a new journey towards bigger and better things!
