Ever since I was a little girl crafting Christmas light bulb earrings to sell and a teenager rearranging my furniture, I’ve been all about arranging, brainstorming beauty and creating connection. In the adult world, those talents translated (maybe not exactly) to a degree in Architectural and Industrial Design and working with drawings in the design fields for over 20 years.
Fast forward to the internet age and I added self taught manager of creative content for various blogs and ministry websites to my resume. But the call to create never really died so quietly in the cracks and crevices of time, I honed my creative entrepreneur skills by setting up shop at craft fairs around Virginia. After a while, I gave up the nomad show life and settled in as a booth keeper at the Vintage Antique Shack in Powhatan, VA. Recollected Design started and will remain (for now…) a handpicked, one of a kind shopping experience with unique vintage finds from yesterday and recreated items of today.
But it’s taken on a whole new dimension since I most recently became a certified Life Mentoring School Coach. Through coaching, my passion for design has come full circle as I get to encourage, accompany and help you brainstorm beauty and goodness and all that could be in your heart and home. It’s my joy to help you make room in your mind and space and remember what matters most.
