Meet Kayla

I am an award winning, Certified Interior Designer located in Prince William County, Virginia. With over 13 years of experience in the industry, I have had projects spanning the DC Metro area and across the US, have a BA in Interior Design from Marymount University,  and professional certification from NCIDQ.

Giving back to the design community has always been a passion of mine and was encouraged early on in my career. I love meeting, working with, and mentoring student and emerging professionals as they begin their journey into a design career. I have been heavily involved in the Washington Metro Chapter of ASID in a variety of leadership positions, and in Fall 2017/Spring2018, I began a new level of leadership within the design community by teaching two interior design courses at Northern Virginia Community College as an adjunct professor.
