I have always been passionate about organization and design, earning an advanced degree in Interior Design. I have had the privilege of designing custom storage solutions for California Closets since 2001. Throughout my career with California Closets, I have sold and designed over 2,000 custom storage systems for every room of the home.
I have been with California Closets since 2002, and have served customers in Lombard, IL and San Diego, CA. With a Bachelors degree in Graphic Design, I have also managed my own small business and applied my creative expertise in logo and invitation design. I have designed cabinets for kitchens as well. I enjoy the service industry because it gives me the opportunity to be versatile in designing amazing spaces for all kinds of unique individuals.
I strive to provide each client with storage solutions that best compliment their home, needs and lifestyle while providing exceptional products and customer service. My goal is to exceed client’s expectations at every level of the process from the initial design consultation to the completion of an installation.
Every home has it’s own story and personality while each design is as unique as the space where it resides. I strive to create designs that are centered on functionality and lifestyle while matching the personalities of the homeowner and the home.
After many years in the Advertising and Marketing field, I decided to embark on a career change. A friend of mine who was a designer for California Closets, (and knew of my passion for the design industry), suggested that I pursue a design consultant career with California Closets. The combination of my past career experience, my love for design, and the innate need that a Virgo has to organize, I soon realized that I loved the challenge of creating customized storage solutions for my clients.
I started my career with California Closets in 1996. California Closets has been in my family for many years as my aunt and uncle are the current owners of the Denver, Colorado franchise. I started my career with California Closets as an installer and moved into a position as a design consultant in 2000.
When I first meet with a California Closets customer, I ask them what goals they have and what they would like to achieve with their space. Once I have heard their ideas, I work with them to create a proper storage solution for their items.The most gratifying part of my job with California Closets is when I can find the best solution for my client and provide a design that they absolutely love!

We strive to keep our design talents current to trends in the industry to create functional and stylish systems to help you organize and simplify your life.I have been with California Closets for about 5 years. I spent 3 ½ years as a Design Consultant and have had the pleasure of managing a fine team of Design Consultants for the last couple of years.
Establishing a positive and friendly connection with the client is my top priority; this creates a great experience for both parties and allows me to understand customers needs and preferences. Designing is my passion and interacting with each client is a challenge that excites me daily; it inspires me to create innovative and unique designs.
Possessing exceptional listening skills and building high levels of trust and long term relationships, are paramount in the design industry. Equally as important is feeling pure excitement for working with your clientele each and every day!
With a professional background spanning three decades in the lifestyle design and fashion industries, becoming fluent in the home storage design industry was a progression in my own lifestyle development. I strongly believe in looking at the past, present and future when it comes to designing for a more beautiful and efficient life scape. When working with any client, I focus on the answer to three key
