I look forward to meeting you! I am Virginia, and yes, I am from the south.
Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, I was interested in design and architecture from a very young age.
My early influence was a family friend Albert Hadley, who extended an invitation to me to intern at
Parish-Hadley in New York City-google it! After earning my Bachelor of Science in Interiors from Auburn
University, I moved to Colorado as soon as I could.
My first job in the Colorado design field was at Kneedler- Fauchere showroom as the receptionist, back
when the design center was at the Ice House. I went to the groundbreaking ceremony for Coors Field on
my lunch hour! I moved up to Vail to work for Slifer Designs, and then to Aspen to help open their new
office. I assisted two talented interior designers in Aspen before opening my own business. Most of my
projects were ground up construction or remodels, and I quickly learned to love helping my clients
through the process of following a project through from concrete and studs to beautiful countertops,
tile, and lighting fixtures!
When I wasn’t designing my clients’ dream home in the mountains, I was skinning up to huts, cross
country skiing, or was on my bike. I met my husband Brian during my road bike racing days when he
raced crits and I raced up hills. We moved to Boulder together in 2009 where he started a solar business
and I continued my interior design business. I joined Melton Design Build as a project developer in
2014, and really enjoyed developing our clients’ projects, while gaining valuable experience in the design
When I am not meeting with you about your inspiring Factor Design Build project, you can find me
hiking with our dogs, attending a yoga class, teaching English to immigrants, or supporting my husband
at his gravel bike races. I can’t wait to share the Factor Design Build values and talented team with you!
