I began my career at CTW Flooring as the Warehouse Maintenance and Carpet Cleaning Specialist in 2012. Through this experience, I gained valuable knowledge regarding many aspects of the flooring process, including customer service, products, supplying, and installation. As a Carpet Cleaning Specialist, I worked with property managers and maintenance workers, which enhanced my understanding of property management job-related conditions and concerns.

After attending University of Wisconsin - Stevens Point, I completed my bachelors of arts degree in Interior Architecture in 2013. Strong interests of mine lied within the environment, universal design in the home, and the strong sense of functionality in the home. I love to travel and discuss vacations with clients. Through my travels, I have been able to widen my knowledge of design and motif's used in the design world and can help bring some of those values into a flooring, or tile project! I first help with preliminary designs, taking customers from their ideas, to pulling options together to represent their own style and design. My favorite projects are shower and backsplash designs, as well as luxury vinyl plank and tile, when I can really explore customized designs that the homeowner and I pull together.
