Experience: I started my career in the design field by selling tile. After nearly a decade and relocating to the Bay Area, I decided to go back to school for Interior Design / Architecture at UC Berkeley Extension Program. After years of working my way up in the field, I am now a Project Designer at Alden Miller Interiors.

Operations + Expediting
Experience: After 25 years as a writer and environmental consultant, I found my way to ordering and tracking the whereabouts of AMI’s interior design related goods. I ensure textiles, furnishings, tile, lighting, and all the interior design related goods get ordered and delivered on time. I also produce the AMI newsletter and write blog content.

Experience: With 20 years of experience in marketing and operations, much of it in the finance industry, I thrive on brainstorming creative and strategic solutions for campaigns and processes that help companies succeed.

Experience: I’ve been in the Interior Design industry for nearly two decades spearheading backend interior design operations and accounting processes. I have a degree in Interior Design and Business; from my first day working for a design firm, I felt a natural pull towards the business of Interior Design. I help Interior Designers with operations and accounting efforts. At AMI, I handle all accounting functions and help clients with project financials.
Design Inspiration: Casual and coastal look with blue tones, wood elements and just a touch of elegance

Experience: I have 15 years of experience working on residential interiors spaces with Bay Area architecture, development, and interior design firms. Interior design encompasses many things I care about: art, architecture, history, color theory and natural materials. I love uncovering a client’s vision, and listening and understanding how someone lives in order to create a beautiful and functional, personalized space. I have been learning from and collaborating with Alden since the beginning of my design career.
Design Inspiration: Spaces that reflect a well travelled life, mix antique with contemporary, and take risks to showcase personality and culture
