What do you do? I’m a designer/decorator and store owner. Mother of two human children and 50 or so other animals on my farm.
Why did you choose this field? I love to make spaces prettier than they were before I found them.
What inspires you about your customers and clients? That I get to help people love their space they live in (or work in)
What inspires you about being downtown? The feel of the district and rich history is amazing.
What advice do you have for those planning to open a business downtown? Just DO IT!!! Make it happen however you need to. Whatever makes it possible just do it.
What would you like to see more of downtown? Family events to get more people downtown. Diversity. Not just a bar scene but family time downtown.
What ideas do you have that would benefit others downtown? I think if the homeless population was a little better managed it would help more people feel comfortable in coming downtown again.
