After 20 years working in education, health care and as a real estate investor, Kristen has blended her expertise in those fields with her passion for a personalized design experience. Kristen believes that all life experiences shape our need for home, whether it is a place to retreat, relax or recharge. Her authenticity and ability to “meet people where they are” allows for clients to be active contributors in their own design and achieve an outcome that exceeds their expectations.
Kristen grew up splitting time between the coast of La Jolla and the mountains of Lake Tahoe, California and carried this tradition on with her own family. Lake Life, as she calls it, is the greatest influence on her style and approach to design. No matter where your home sits or how grand or cozy it may be, you deserve spaces that allow for life to slow down and memories to be made.
Kristen holds a B.A. in Education from Whitworth University and a specialized credential in Childbirth Education and a certification as a Labor Support Specialist from University of California San Diego. When not designing, Kristen enjoys time with her partner, Shane, and is a busy mom of teenagers. At home, the kitchen is her place to be...cooking for a crowd of kids after sports or hosting friends and family on a holiday because creating experiences for loved ones is what matters most!
