Where did you go to school?

San Jose State University

What do you do at RMW?

I’m the San Jose Studio Director and a Senior Project Manager for interiors.

Why did you decide to go into interior design?

My interest in architecture and interior design began when I was a little girl. I would sit with my mother looking over the plans in design magazines and help her “fix” things that she found to be poorly designed.

What do you like about the firm?

What I like about RMW is also the reason I have been with the firm for so long: the people I work with are amazing.  There’s a great camaraderie among us and an incredible commitment to doing what we do well.

What do you do outside the firm?

At RMW, my days are about the built environment. Outside of the firm, I enjoy places where I can experience nature with my family through camping, hiking, and fishing. If there is water, a lake or a creek, I’m even happier.
