What do you love most about working at Coastal Cottage of Amelia:

Bringing the love and inspiration from my late husband into my work. We shared a passion for making over homes and turning them into sanctuaries for the residents of Nassau County, and now I get to continue to do that full-time. We have a strong team of dedicated employees and have rebranded the store's name together. We plan to continue to grow the store and expand the offerings of our services. I love being involved with our wonderful community and supporting local charities and events.

What do you love about working with customers, design, and home furnishings:

I enjoy taking what is hard for our customers and making it easy for them. Being invited into someone’s home is special and turning into their vision and making the journey effortless and watching them light up with happiness is the best part of working with our customers.
