As a project manager of interior design, I am highly motivated, extremely organized, and dedicated with extensive, thorough and skillful support to team members and clients. I am a detail oriented, ambitious, and resourceful collaborator with the exceptional ability to prioritize, multitask, and work independently.

My strength lies in helping the clients to understand the design and construction process necessary by being a bridge between the clients and designers/ contractors, so they can trust us throughout the entire process.

I bring exceptional cultural sensitivity and am a champion of diversity, equity and inclusion.

I have lived in many different countries-- including the USA, China, Korea, Thailand and Europe--and different cultures. I love interacting and building rapport with people from different backgrounds and helping them feel at ease and heard. I am fluent in English and Korean and have studied Chinese, Spanish and French.

I have strong experience in interior design project management and proven success in executing all tasks and project coordination on time and within budget by creating efficient systems of operation.

I’m known for my effective and visually appealing presentations--and for winning so many RFPs. I am calm and comfortable in front of an audience. I first got my start in public presentations as a violinist at age 5. I enjoy connecting with the audience and am skillful at reading the room, anticipating and improvising with unexpected questions.

Key Strengths:
-Flexible in devising proactive responses to unforeseen complications
-Strategic planning
-Problem solving
-Critical thinking

Core Competencies:
Project Management: Strategic Thinking. Team Motivation. Managing Expectations. Inventory Management.
Software: AutoCad. 3D Max. Sketchup. Revit, Photoshop. InDesign. Illustrator. Microsoft Office

I am always interested in connecting with others in my field to exchange ideas, and old acquaintances, please feel free to reach out if you would like to connect.
