My Story

My design experience started at a young age with parents that loved to build their home from the ground up and infuse them with their own style. All through out my school years, I studied art and fashion which led me to event decorating and visual merchandising. I loved styling the stores and wanted to apply those skills to commercial spaces and homes.

I started working as an Interior Designer in January of 2020. While this was a challenging time to transition rolls, I got a lot of practice creating a great customer service experience for my new clients, virtually. In January of 2023, I was able to book my first client as an Independent Designer outside of the company I worked for. After that, Embarking On Design became an LLC in April 2023 and has been accepting new in-person and virtual interior design clients since!

For now, my in-person services are limited to Indiana but, I am available for virtual decoration consultations with any one in the United States.

How It Works

Embarking On Design is based in Carmel, IN.  I consistently work on projects locally and across the United States. My design process is flexible and responsive. I have worked with clients that have a strong vision and help them achieve it while other clients are less sure and I guide them through the design process by helping them create their own aesthetic as we go.
