What did you study in school?

I took the Interior Decorating program at Algonquin College.

What is your favourite room in a home and why?

My favorite room in a home would have to be the family room. Whether it’s curling up with a hot cup of tea in front of the fireplace on a cold day and enjoying some time to myself, watching a movie, competing during Jeopardy with my husband, or gathering with the family and enjoying conversation and laughter, the family room is a place that always brings everyone together.

If you could only have one appliance in your kitchen, what would it be and why?

I think if I could only have one appliance, I would choose a fridge. You can get pretty creative with ways to cook without appliances in the kitchen, but without a fridge it would be challenging to keep food fresh and available whenever you need it (and keep your drinks cold!)

What is your most memorable CHI project to date?

I haven’t been with CHI for very long so I’ve just started seeing a few things come together here and there so far. My very first week, Diana Delaney was working on the model homes for Claridge Homes’ Westpointe Village, and I was able to tag along with her for a couple of days as the homes were being finished.


It was really neat to experience the process of shopping and staging for these two beautiful homes and getting to lend a hand wherever I was needed to help pull everything together. It was a lot of fun to get to see the creative thought process that Diana has and see her designs come to life in the final stages. Although my position with CHI is administrative, my background is Interior Decorating, so it’s always fun to get to use my creative side once in a while! It was an unexpected and exciting way to start my first week with CHI and I loved every minute of it!
