Tell me about a project or accomplishment that you consider significant in your career

I came to a decision to walk away from my full time job to pursue my dreams of doing interior design professionally. This continues to be the most significant reward to date.  As far as accomplishments go, I recently completed a full house renovation and design project. For the first African American and second female vice chancellor to reside on the bench, in the history of the Chancery Court of Delaware (which is just one level below the Supreme Court).  The project was fantastic and the client and her family are amazing! Love them! The nicest people ever!!
 
What are the rewards from your work
 
Sharing my design vision with my clients and realizing their dream.  A bonus is their glowing referral. But one of my favorite moments is their reaction and happiness at the unveiling of their space.
