Hello and greetings!
From the newest member of the Board & Vellum team, I am beyond happy to be here!
So, a little about me – I was born and raised in Seattle (3rd gen) and love nothing more than being outdoors, which is kind of ironic since my profession is interior design. Or maybe it’s not, since we all need balance!
My love of the outdoors is not limited to nature and definitely includes the built environment; some of my best mileage has come from urban hikes! But my passion can surely be traced to my childhood having grown up camping, hiking, and sailing. There is nothing better than riding the earth via tides, waves, and wind. (If you are reading this, have a sailboat, and need a savvy deckhand, look no further!)
From backpacking all over the west coast to trekking across Nepal, from biking on the insane terrains that are Seattle roads to sea kayaking on the Sound and many, many, self-guided architectural walking tours in-between, I am most happy when I’m out in the world. It’s where I find inspiration and it’s how I recharge.
When I can’t get out and travel (I’m looking at you 2020/21) I’ll opt for tourist at home; there are a surprising number of things I haven’t done or seen. Like going to the tulip festival, which I finally did! I recommend going on a day when the clouds are cumulus.
With all of this outdoor recharge, I am so grateful for the opportunity to bring energy to the fantastically talented Interiors Studio. With most of my career being in the multifamily and commercial world, I am excited to extend my expertise in design, technical documentation, and project management.
I love this career because we all have different experiences and can always learn from each other. In this field of work, you never stop growing and I am excited to grow at Board & Vellum.
