Owner, Four Over One Design
Originally from Chapel Hill, I completed an undergraduate degree in Studio Art from Smith College. While I knew nothing about the field of preservation then, I loved the old buildings on campus and the sense of place they conveyed. A few years out of college, I attended graduate school at UNC-Greensboro and received a MS in Interior Architecture with a concentration in Historic Preservation – setting myself at the intersection of preservation and design.
I founded 4/1 after completing three years as the Director of Design and Preservation with Trinity Design/Build, where I worked directly with the contractors to complete 17 renovations, additions, and remodels. Now, I particularly appreciate being able to customize my services to what a client really needs for a given project. After all, no two houses (and no two families!) are the same.
My two sons, one skinny dog, and I live in a midcentury ranch just north of town. We love our old neighborhoods, local food and drink, and Durham in all ways.
