How do you work with people?
"I like to really connect with my customer. We work together on creating a budget, while we get an understanding of the project goals, and then I can dive in and give them what they want. I love full service projects."
You seem to have a bit of design background...
"My whole career has been design-oriented! I studied and worked in design in Soho/NYC, I was a corporate design coordinator at Nordstrom and I even attended an arts-oriented high school. Design is in my blood. I love pretty things. I love working on my home. I love color, design - I'm definitely in the right job."
You mean it when you say you connect to people
"Once, I was helping a customer with color, and found out she had cancer. I could tell by her space that she was a romantic person, so I made her a 'God box' gift to help her deal with her illness (a special little box where you write down your worries and then let them go).
She came back the other day, cancer free, to buy more paint and I am so happy to be going back out to help her again."
