I am a ’88 graduate from Russell Sage College, Albany, NY with an Interior Design degree. Prior to Sage, in ’85, I graduated with a Fashion Merchandising degree from Cazenovia College in Cazenovia, NY. For 23 years, I have worked in the contract furniture industry with a high concentration in systems furniture.
I began my career in the design position role, "graduated" to the Design Department Manager role and as recently as 9 years ago decided to pursue furniture sales to allow for greater flexibility. I currently work in the contract furniture division at WB Mason in the Albany branch.
I have served on the Design Advisory Board at Sage College in previous years and look forward to working with our next generation of design talent. I will continue to work with the faculty at Sage in order to bring design students as interns into our branch. Job shadowing opportunities for both high school and college students is also encouraged. I feel it is important to support and guide our design students so they can make educated decisions for their future design careers.
I reside in North Greenbush, NY with my husband, son and 2 step-children.
