Email is what I do!  Usually in the morning with a big 'ole coffee...

And social media is fun, but DM's via Instagram or Pinterest are not the best way to get in touch, okay?

As a client, you'll hear from me regularly during your consultation. 

And even though I'm living that WFH life, I keep 'formal' office hours 6 days a week.  You'll get a prompt response during those times.  

After hours?  I disconnect from my devices to re-charge my brain and body.  I'll be back with your response as soon as I am 'in office'!

be back with you soon!

I want you to stop feeling overwhelmed with that big home project, and instead feel confident, empowered, and ready to make it happen.  

I'm going to listen to what you want, make sure you have everything you need, and then? I'll show you how to get it done, too.
