A few fun facts about myself
I’ve lived on three continents, I am an avid bird watcher #birdnerd, soup is my least favorite food, I met my husband while studying abroad, my favorite job (outside of design) was as an environmental educator, and I nerd out to maps of all types.
My passions and personality
My path to opening NS Design was not straight forward but honestly I love the challenge of running my own business.
On the weekends I enjoy exploring the outdoors with my husband. Hiking in Washington’s many state and national parks is a favorite pastime. In the warmer months, we love to go camping and exploring sleepy pacific northwest towns.
We are avid cooks and love to spend time together in the kitchen. Sustainable farming is a topic dear to our hearts and we are supporters of CSA (community shared agriculture) and proudly belong to Oxbow Farms’s CSA.
Nerd life began at a young age. In sixth grade I attended my first summer camp, Computer Camp, and learned how to code my very first HTML website. I dedicated the site to 50’s music and Elvis, ha! Since that fateful summer, I’ve been exploring design and development.
Throughout the years I’ve worked at organizations that do not consider the user experience when designing products. That never sat well with me and I knew there were better approaches to design. Hard work has led me to where I am now, but am just as passionate about where my career is leading me.
