“Growing up as a contractor’s daughter in the small town of Grand Rapids, Minnesota gave me opportunities to learn from a young age about design. Our family business, Nature’s Edge Construction, expanded into custom cabinetry in 2015 allowing me the opportunity to help design cabinets for clients my Freshman year of high school.

“A few years later, I came across Home Designer Software and it has been used in every kitchen project since. The user-friendly interface is remarkable, and I find myself designing dream homes for friends in my spare time. I plan on upgrading to Chief Architect Premier when I open my own Interior Architecture business in the future. For now, I am excited to continue my academic career in the fall, when I head off to college, majoring in Interior Architecture and Design.”
