Lake Forest, CA, US



As for myself, I am a single mom currently trying to get back into my career of Interior Designer, demonstrate my creativity with commercial, hospital/medical office, and space planning for club rooms design.

My reasons for leaving such a fantastic career is to raise my two children 10 years ago. Since now they are in school and Scout activities, I am able to focus back onto my career as a designer that I miss dearly. I have recently taken Revit 2013 and 2010 AutoCAD course at Saddleback College to enhance my skills. I have a creative and detailed mind to all my assignments that I have done in my past, present, and future with professional work ethics that include being a team player, honest, organized, and multi-tasking.

I have 3+ years of AutoCAD space planning, construction drawings for commercial TI's.
