Nickname: Shashie ("Sha-She"- from Mom)

Fave staging style: Contemporary coastal to coastal cottage.
Why I have a GGD client crush:  I love it when they rush in as we’re finishing up and the ooo’s and aaah’s ensue.
Best stager hack: Has to be my custom-made art “hanging stick”.
Fave color palette: Any palette that includes Blues! (And they pair nicely with Pantones 2019 Color of the Year: Living Coral.)
Best staging piece: ART – it can create & define purpose for a room, draw the eye to discover different areas of the home, accent the volume of a high ceiling…
Creativity sparks: Pinterest. But, I also love a good staging challenge, figuring out how to make tricky spaces work is my mojo.
My ringtone song: The Fixer by Pearl Jam; highly Stager appropriate.
Pet peeves: Poor/distracted drivers. We’re all just trying to arrive alive, people!
