Hi  there,


I love everything home! Studying trends in design and construction, touring available homes, scouring Pinterest for ideas, I am always thinking about how to improve a home's appearance and value. As a Realtor® and interior designer, I have the unique qualifications to assist buyers in finding that almost perfect house, helping them to visualize the possibilities and implementing changes to turn it into a place they can be proud to call HOME.

“Some people look for a beautiful place, others make a place beautiful.”- Hazrat Inayat Khan

As an Austin-based designer I have a passion for healthy and sustainable home design. I studied at The Art Institute of Houston, where I earned my degree in Interior Design. I launched Koral Design Studio in 2018. Prior to that, I worked as a lead buyer for the home improvement start-up, TreeHouse, where I expanded my knowledge of healthy, sustainable options for home interiors and construction. Continuing the mission of “The Healthy Home,” non-toxic furniture, zero-VOC finishes, and sustainable accessories are at the core of my work!


I am fortunate to be part of an industry that brings me happiness and allows me to use my creativity and experience to guide others in one of the biggest investments they will ever make. I have called Austin home since 2003 and know the intricacies of each community and neighborhood. Austin is where I met my wonderfully supportive husband and where my two beautiful daughters came into the world. We are now Buda residents and are loving every minute of it; the quick commute to Austin, the slower paced vibes and small town feel are perfect for our lifestyle now!
