"Introducing....."

Lately, I've been feeling a little like this....




Working a full time job, going to school and launching a business, pretty much has me running in circles.  
So, I've decided that it's time for some help.   I was fortunate to receive a tip from someone in one of my social media circles, who suggested that I post a listing on the Queens University job list site.  While I would've killed for the opportunity when I was in undergrad, I was skeptical that anyone would be interested in an unpaid internship with a newly established, non-credentialed interior decorator.  Much to my surprise, I received an inquiry from an Junior Interior Design major who was very interested in the opportunity.  And, I'm pleased to report that she'll be starting with me next month!  

I thought I would formally introduce her to you.  So, please join me in welcoming.....

In her own words....

Hi Dwell by Cheryl followers! I am from a tiny town called Norwood in North Carolina (it only has two stop lights in the entire town!). It's about an hour east of Charlotte, in Stanly County. I currently attend Queen's University of Charlotte and plan to graduate with a BA in Interior Design in May 2013.
How I got interested in interior design and figured out that it was what I wanted to study, really boiled down to me scrambling around during my senior year of high school and the following summer. I was trying to answer the question; What will I major in? When I noticed one day that every time I had a chance to sit in front of the television, I found myself watching HGTV. Color Splash with David Bromstad was my favorite. It also dawned on me that every time my mother wanted to do something different to her bedroom, living room, etc. I was the one helping her pick out the wall color and accessories.  I was even doing the same thing for other family and  friends because I really enjoyed doing it.
So I went for it, and I've truly enjoyed it so far. Especially when we get to create mood boards for projects with those theoretical clients with endless pockets :  ).  Once I finish school and get on my feet, I'd like to begin the journey of creating my own business.   I want to work with "everyday" people. Cheryl and I discussed working with people who truly deserve something they would love to come home to; a home they are proud of and love. So needless to say, Cheryl has already inspired me and I'm looking forward to working with her.
Thanks Chelsea! 
I'm really looking forward to working with Chelsea.  I'm sure we'll learn lots from each other.  Needless to say, I'm also very much looking forward to the help.

Welcome aboard, Chelsea! As a colleague of Cheryl's (and fellow Norwoodian-how crazy!), I know this will be a wonderful experience. Remember you'll only get out what you put into the relationship, but its not hard to grow and learn with such a wonderful person! My best to you both.
