WELCOME to WHEELHOUSE DESIGN
It is our mission to make a difference through Interior Design. In our experience and that of our clients, these aspects of design unite to shape spaces. By intentionally crafting the spaces in which we work, we facilitate creativity and support the relationships that occur within them, regardless of the scope of work.
We believe collaboration is a key factor in successful design, whether reconfiguring spaces or outfitting existing ones with new furnishings. In any and all cases, we encourage our clients to be integrated in the process. The outcome awards a unified translation from conception to reality.
Our intuition is pervasive, our communications positive and direct. We aim to streamline our iterative design process such that the experience for our clients occurs as open and straightforward, as they are key players in the game.
Our hands-on approach starts at the first meeting and remains constant through the design and installation process, down to the last detail. Whether new construction or a kitchen remodel, full furnishings or a light refresh, cohesion runs deep and is unique for every client, in every project. We aim to translate our clients’ wishes into a comfortable reality that expresses their unique priorities and individuality.
We love design. We are passionate about reshaping spaces. What drives us is the opportunity to make a difference… one space at a time.
WHY WHEELHOUSE DESIGN?
We strive to be memorable, creating something unique and special, always. We discover inspiration, by and for our clients, in a perpetual state of innovation. We collaborate at all levels, practicing collective creativity and problem solving. We promote positivity, espousing the ideal that anything is possible. We are present, putting clients first in an approachable, reliable, available manner.

And we communicate openly, with full transparency, sharing ideas, knowledge and expertise in an open, honest and realistic fashion to set clear expectations.
Welcome to Wheelhouse Design. Let’s get started.
MEET the TEAM
Principal, Registered Interior Designer
Born and raised in Austin, educated in Architecture at the University of Texas, and professionally trained in both Architecture and Interior Design in central Virginia and across my vast home State, I am experienced with honoring pristine natural surroundings and adapting to an ever-shifting built environment. International travel over the last 20 years has shaped my influences and design acumen as well. My ability to be malleable runs deep, as does my practiced sense to seek the potential for beauty in all spaces.
For me, the process of design is one of listening, interpretation, putting into practice years of experience to foster the right solution, time and again, never discovering the same answer twice. That’s the beauty of it… finding synergy between structure, functionality, aesthetic, and crafted detail, for each individual client.
I am a mama, a creator, a space shifter. I also love a good karaoke night with friends… and camping. All of these attributes bring me joy and are the gifts I get to offer back to the world, full circle.
Lead Interior Designer
I am happy to be a part of the Wheelhouse Design team! With a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design and a Minor in Art History from Texas State University, I have collaborated on a handful of iconic Austin venues including Uchi, Loro, Google, Whole Foods, WeWork, and more. I hold over a decade of experience in graphic and hospitality design. I have a lifelong passion for design, art, and nature. In my personal time, I love to be outdoors, primitive camping, hiking, and traveling to national/state parks with my boyfriend. I also enjoy cooking, gardening, yoga and meditation, as well as making soap for my family and friends.
I joined the team at Wheelhouse Design in February of 2020 to help oversee internal processes with clients and vendors. My professional experience started on the showroom side in Houston, and later into outside sales, representing multiple vendors across Texas. I am driven by creative thinking and finding new ways to make the internal side of the design business run smoothly. Outside of the office, I enjoy creating music, trying new food, and taking my dog on journeys around town.
I was thrilled to join the Wheelhouse Design team in October of 2022. I brought with me a decade in management experience in various industries with much of my career spent in property management, and as Operations Coordinator I’m excited to put my skillset to work. I have always been interested in design and I am thrilled to support and learn from the team at Wheelhouse Design. I was raised in Austin, Texas and I love spending my spare time finding new places to explore with my husband, laughing with family, playing with my rescue dogs, or reading a good book.
