What do you do in your spare time? Do you have any interesting hobbies?
I love gardening, rock painting, cycling, running, and spending time with my friends and family. Fridays are our family movie nights!
Why did you choose this career?
I am passionate about drawing. I especially like drawing residential homes because it brings me joy knowing a family will enjoy a beautiful new home.
I also enjoy assisting clients with their personalized home renovation projects.
What’s the best gift you’ve ever received?
A tailored dress from my father. My father was a single parent of five kids and money was not in abundance. However, he managed to take us to a tailor and made us dresses of our chosen design to wear for Christmas!
Where is your favorite place in the world?
Home is the best place because I get to be comfortable with my family and pets.
