Project Manager

I’m originally from Oklahoma but have called Arkansas home for 20 years. I have spent the last few years with companies in various aspects of the remodeling and design industry. I have been lucky to become well versed in many specifics with this industry and thoroughly enjoy it. I love helping clients, through every step of the process, bringing their ideas and visions to reality. 

My husband and I were married in 2004 and have an amazing son and daughter that keep us busy! He is an Arkansan with deep family roots in the flooring industry. He had been an installer himself his entire life. We enjoy chasing our kids through their many activities and spending as much time as possible on our boat on Lake Ouachita.
