    I chose Budget Blinds because I believe in working hard and having fun while doing it. Our industry allows us to work hard to meet our customer’s needs and wishes, while simultaneously having a great time discussing their project, their home, and their lives. I have always been someone who loves to take on a new challenge that others were scared to approach, and being an owner in this company presents me with this unique opportunity. Whether it’s odd shapes, large sizes, and difficult to reach windows, I want to figure it out and I don’t give up easily.

    This business allows me to meet so many amazing people. When you work in someone’s home you learn their stories; not just who they are, but where they’ve been and what brought them here. Often times, these customers become more like friends. Along with my passion for design, I bring twenty years of experience in window coverings with me. I’m well versed in coming up with solutions for unique windows and I love bringing my creativity and ingenuity into our customer’s homes.
