Reason for starting
For seven years, I travelled the country and the world as a national transportation policy expert with the Federal Government. Searching to uncover my artistic talent, I returned to school to study interior design and expanded my personal awareness through Feng Shui studies and certification.

Biggest Success
I was listed as one of the Top 100 Designers in the Washington, D.C., region by Home & Design Magazine, with five of my designs featured in their Portfolio for 2011. I consider my involvement with the reading project at Unity Health Care as my biggest success.

What is your top challenge and how have you addressed it?
My biggest challenge has been writing my first book, Feel Good Spaces A Guide for Decorating Your Home for Body and Spirit, a resource for those who want to create a living space that is inviting, peaceful and full of positive energy. I took time out of my schedule to really concentrate and discipline myself to finish the book.

Who is your most important role model?
My most important role model is Oprah Winfrey.
