After marrying and relocating to Omaha, Debbie, a native of St. Paul, MN, she began her career in interior design.  Her higher education began at Creighton University and was completed at the University of Minnesota. Deb initially began volunteering with her daughters’ high school and most recently with Project Harmony. She is an active member of the Omaha Law League and a former member of the Junior League of Omaha.  Debbie has been a partner in the Interior Design Group for 12 years and was a previously a partner of Design Five, Inc.

  • What do you consider successful design?

To accomplish what the client has requested in a way that is as creative and cost effective as possible. Nothing is more pleasing than hearing the client say “you made the idea come to life and I love it!”

  • How does your design process begin?

I schedule an interview with the client in the setting we will be working on to see what they want to keep or change. This is an opportunity to see if this relationship is “a good fit” for both of us.  After that we dig in and get to work.

  • When I’m not working, I’m…

On the golf course in the warm months or on the tennis court when it is cold outside. (Additional lessons would improve both.)  Also, spending family time with my husband and two grown daughters and now a new puppy!

  • Guilty pleasure:

A box of Cheez-its and the Kardashians.
