My passion for helping people improve their lives began through my work as a nurse. I went on to earn a Master’s degree in psychology which deepened my understanding of how people approach problem-solving. Then I studied interior design at Boston Architectural College and architectural psychology at Tufts University.

In 1992 I launched Nurturing Spaces to help people create homes for personal relaxation and renewal, while supporting their connections with family and friends. I found that many of my clients felt overwhelmed setting up comfortable, functional home offices. After witnessing the “aha” moments my clients had in their now beautiful and functional home offices, I wrote The Smarter Home Office: 8 Simple Steps to Increase Your Income, Inspiration and Comfort. My goal is to help people be more comfortable, in body and mind, by creating better work spaces.


While proud of my Midwestern roots (Go Blue!) I now delight in the natural and architectural beauty of Boston and New England. In my spare time I enjoy entertaining my brave friends with “I’ve never made this before, but the recipe looked interesting” dinners, traveling, and curling up with a good novel, mystery or history.
