For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
— Jeremiah 29:11
 

These are my favorite words to live by because when times get tough or things don't work out exactly how I envision, I recite these words and remember that GOD has a great plan for me - no matter what happens, at all times, through the good, the bad and the ugly - GOD wants the very best for me and that is ALL that matters.

Get to know me

I am a Rockstar Interior Designer! I work super duper hard so my clients can have a better life just by building their very own custom stunning, comfortable and invigorating interior. Whatever fantasy you dream, I can create. I do this for both residential and commercial spaces. But enough about what I do, here's a little bit about me!

I am a CREATIVE being. I LOVE LOVE LOVE ART, FASHION, DESIGN, VINTAGE and all things BEAUTY. At the age of 9, I designed and constructed my own multilevel Barbie house. At 11, I hand-sewed my first bra from remnants of fabrics that my mother used for her various dressmaking projects. From 12 to 17, I spawned several patchwork pillows and blankets ranging in various sizes and materials; sewing each singular patch by hand. Throughout my teenage years into early adult life, I dismantled computers or any other electronic devices just to study their mechanical characteristics more closely; and when I was done studying their parts, I put them back together.

So, my obsession for the creative channels has led me to my current hustle of interior design. I am a solopreneur at the moment. However, my dream for the future is have my own design studio with at least 5 more interior designers working with me, transforming interiors both domestically and internationally.

I am unapologetically a daughter and follower of Jesus Christ! I am the proud momma of Nyah and Mila, my 4-legged girlies. I have 2 sisters - I am the middle child. We, along with my momma, migrated to Houston from Panama, Panama several years ago. I enjoy reading, watching Grey's Anatomy and taking long walks in parks.

Who is your biggest Girl Crush and why?

Erykah Badu because her mind is super beyond brilliant. Her music is exemplary. Her creativity is unparalleled. She is amazing. I am always enthralled with her words and her works. She is unpredictable. Each show that I have attended and seen her, all have been different. She performs spontaneously - so no 2 shows are alike. She is my absolute fave entertainer at all times. Erykah is no-doubt a rare talent of my lifetime.

What is your Spirit Animal and why?

My spirit animal is a dog. When I look at my babies, they act just like people but without the capability of talking. They comfort me when I am sad. They make me laugh with their quirky personalities. They are kind, generous, lovable and loyal. Those qualities are a reflection of some of my best qualities of my personality.

What is your favorite leisure spot, restaurant or gathering space in Houston?

Retrospect Coffee

Why do you want to be a part of the Sesh Community?

To form a bond and friendship with other girl bosses in the Houston area. To learn from other women. To encourage other women as they walk the entrepreneurship journey. To love and support other women in their personal and professional lives. To experience a true sisterhood in the world of business. I am thrilled to be part of this special network of beautiful ladies.

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the Sesh Community?

Creativity. Writing. Design and enhancing interior of the permanent Sesh space.

  • Collaboration
