NKBA: Designer Showcase

For as long as I can remember I was looking to make spaces more functional and remarkable. With an Interior Design degree from the University of Nebraska Kearney (an NKBA certified program) and a few design awards under my belt, I got my professional start at a firm in Boston, Massachusetts. I absolutely loved my time on the East coast and the wealth of knowledge that I received. I also had the opportunity to teach at the Boston Architectural College and the New England School of Art and Design. I also achieved my CKD from the NKBA.  


With a desire to be closer to family as well as wanting to expand my professional practice, I made the move to Kansas City and joined a residential design-build firm. In 2009 I decided to make one more leap and started Orion Design.  I wanted to offer comprehensive design services without having to be tethered to certain products or materials. I also wanted to work with Kansas City’s best remodelers! I got all that and more! With the growth of Orion Design, it has become the absolute joy of my career to assemble a team of incredibly talented and bright women. We thrive on creating client focused designs that are a reflection of the family and home that they serve.
