Your Space Refined – Rochester Hills, MI

Looking back, I was lucky my parents encouraged my childhood “habit” of rearranging the family furniture. Later, I went on to study interior design, and worked as a traditional designer for a few years. But what I really wanted was a way to help people enjoy their lives through great design — without breaking their budget.

I learned about the Interior Redecorators Network™ through a friend, enrolled in the training, and knew instantly that this was the right way to practice our craft. So I became a Certified Interior Redecorator® in 2007 and never looked back.

A client once told me her family life markedly improved after I redecorated her house, and I thought, what a wonderful thing we do: create; pursue our passions; and help others at the same time!

Re-Feather Your Nest Decorating – Chester, NJ

After being certified by Lauri Ward in Use What You Have® redecorating, I knew I had discovered my life’s passion and immediately joined the Interior Redecorators Network™. Now, I have the pleasure of helping educate clients every day, transforming their homes into places they love.

Since 2004 I have been fortunate enough to serve numerous roles on the IRN Board of Directors. I must also say, it has been gratifying to be part of an organization that continues setting such high standards, and which so enthusiastically supports its members, both professionally and personally.

I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead, and fully embrace Lauri Ward’s vision for success.
