I have always had a love of art and design.
I believe intuitive, customized interior design can transform your life.
My skills as an interior designer lie in figuring out how you need your space to function in a way that makes sense in your life. I excel in creating interior home design for you to live in the way you want to live.
Think of me as your personal design coach.
While still working in high tech at my corporate software product and project management position, I started taking courses in design. I left high tech and completed my Master of Arts Degree in Interior Design in 2006 in Boston, at the New England School of Art and Design/Suffolk University.
I am based in Pelham, Massachusetts, and consult throughout New England and New York and started KDZ Designs, LLC in 2009. Pelham is located in the Pioneer Valley, next to Amherst.
I love living in Western Massachusetts!
I’m a member of the International Furnishings and Design Association (IFDA), New England Chapter. In 2012, I became a New England-IFDA board member, focused on membership. In 2013, I became the president-elect of the New England Chapter, and will be president in 2014.
The IFDA is a dynamic organization that connects designers and design-related businesses through education and networking – we have terrific events that bring our members and prospective members together monthly in the greater Boston area.
I am also a member of the Amherst Area Chamber of Commerce; find my profile at

My Other Interests – Outside of Interior Design
Dogs are a big passion of mine; over the last 25 years, my husband, Bill and I have adopted a total of 8 retired racing greyhounds. We currently have two, Dinah, in her dotage at 12 years, plus, and Dashiell, a strapping 5 year old.
We support the greyhound adoption group in Salisbury, MA: Greyhound Adoption Service. I have a blast running the raffle and silent auction every year at our major fundraiser, our Annual Reunion (this year was the 19th).
Adopting a greyhound is a greyt idea!!
