What do you love most about working at Coastal Cottage of Amelia:
Having worked at Coastal Cottage of Amelia for 8 years, I’ve developed wonderful friendships with our community.  I am thrilled to have a fantastic team to work alongside especially Yvonne who has a beautiful vision for the store!
What do you love about working with customers, design, and home furnishings:
When a customer comes to us and asks for our help, I am touched that they trust us to invite us into their homes.  I enjoy bringing a sense of peace in the process of either completing a room or a whole new design that leaves them happy with a home they always wanted.  Interior Design is very personal to the individual.  When I get to know the client and bring that personality into the design - it’s magic!  I truly love what I do!
