What’s your favorite Room & Board piece?

Our Parsons table/desk collection is my favorite for sheer versatility. It is used in university dining halls, libraries, offices, kitchens, bathrooms, sports clubs—you name a location and you’ll find it there. Plus 99% recycled steel and made in Minnesota—an all-around winner.

What types of projects are your favorite to work on?

I enjoy projects with strong collaborative elements where clients have a vision and need help in translating it into reality.


What was your first inkling that you were destined to design?

When I was a kid, I spent more time rearranging the furniture in my Barbies’ home than playing with the dolls themselves. My dad was also always rearranging our home in unconventional ways; that really lit a spark in my brain and taught me that a room can be whatever you want it to be.

What types of projects are your favorite to work on?

I love to work on design projects for small-to-medium-size workspaces, where I am working with my client to select both the functional work surfaces and spaces where the team can relax, plus the spaces that define the company’s brand.


What experience, piece of advice or lesson learned the hard way has been the most formative in the way you think about designing?

Understanding the client’s vision of the space’s functionality and who is using the space.

What’s your favorite Room & Board piece? 

The Astaire sofa in Vance velvet.


What was your first inkling that you were destined to design?

When I was in my early teens, my parents were one of the original house flippers. During the 70s we lived in seven different houses within eight years, and I would do layouts of how I wanted my bedroom to look.

What drew you to the Project Coordinator role?

I started my career at Room & Board on the residential side, and I always felt that there should be a way to work with designers and business customers, separately from the residential customers. So when we started Business Interiors, it was a great fit for me. I enjoy working with designers and a wide array of business customers to get the right product for their spaces.


What’s your favorite Room & Board piece? 

Our Lira armchair is my favorite piece because of its simple, yet solid, construction and versatility. It can be used in public spaces like restaurants, waiting rooms and lounges.

Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?

Cuddling up on the sofa with my animals every night.


What drew you to the Project Coordinator role?

The beauty and quality of the Room & Board collection.

What experience, piece of advice or lesson learned the hard way has been the most formative in the way you think about designing?

Always keep in mind the flow and function of a space when you begin a design project.


What’s your favorite room or space to design? 

Hospitality and office spaces.

What experience, piece of advice or lesson learned the hard way has been the most formative in the way you think about designing?

Educate the customer to the extent you can and explain why you make the decisions you do for the project. It’s also important to find out what is driving the project; quality, budget or deadline.


What’s your favorite Room & Board piece? 

The Kenwood collection. It is such a beautiful collection and we have the option to add a ceramic top which is great for heavy use applications.

What drew you to Room & Board? 

As a kid, I was always moving the furniture around in my bedroom and looking at the Sears catalog to “pick out” my next set of bedding (which I was never getting).  Also, we would rearrange the furniture in our living room every spring and every fall.  The funny thing is, I never do that anymore!  I find the best spot and that is where it stays.


Aside from necessities, what one thing could you not go a day without?

Since the pandemic started, I have been setting aside at least 20 minutes a day for some type of yoga practice. I immediately noticed a positive effect on my ability to cope with all the new challenges I have been facing. I am a much better person for taking this time each day to re-center myself. Yoga is definitely one thing I could not go a day without.

What types of projects are your favorite to work on?

I love working in all commercial spaces, but I think my favorite is multi-use office spaces. I love intermixing workspace furnishings and soft seating.


What experience, piece of advice or lesson learned the hard way has been the most formative in the way you think about designing?

Listening and asking the right questions in the initial design discussion is paramount.

What types of projects are your favorite to work on?

I really like the initial design process. Getting to know the customer’s vision and gathering information then seeing how their vision translates into something tangible.


What’s your favorite Room & Board piece? 

Cade sofa and Paris chair.

What drew you to the Project Coordinator role?

The desire to help people fall in love with their space.
