"Here We Grow Again"


Toward the end of 2017, it became pretty apparent that if I was going to be able to operate a sustainable design business, I was going to need some help.  Honestly, the thought was daunting and I put off searching for months.  I knew however, that beginning 2018 on the right foot meant finding a new intern that had the potential to become my first employee.

I put out an all-call on social media and the applications began to come in.  As they had in previous years, great candidates surfaced but I wanted to ensure that I found someone with staying power. 

Enters Jenn...

After a formal phone interview in late December, we met for a follow-up, in-person meeting shortly thereafter.  We hadn't finished our chips and queso before I realized she was THE ONE.  😃  Maybe it was her interest in my business processes or her astute assessment of what was missing, either way, it was easy to see she was a keeper. 


We met for an orientation in early January and it's been full steam ahead ever since.

Jenn is a native of Winston Salem, North Carolina and studied Interdisciplinary Studio Art and Art Management at Appalachian State University.  She comes to us with a keen ability to thrive in fast-paced, high-pressure environments, a skill she honed during a stint in hospitality management.  


She's the perfect combination of artsy and uber organize.  (I know, she's kind of a unicorn.) 😂 Jenn is extremely process-oriented and keeps me on my toes and in line.  She even gives me a day off here and there!  Best of all though, is the fact that she genuinely cares about my business and our clients.  I'm happy to have the pleasure to show her the ropes and to grow my business with her help. 


Last month, Jenn was promoted from Intern to Design Assistant, becoming my very first team member and I couldn't be more thrilled about it.  

We both love good deals and antique malls, value professionalism and integrity and have an affinity for color (pink in particular) and well...the bangs are optional.
