Hello

Here's who I am & what I do

Through all the projects that she works on, she focuses on both the physical environments (interior/exterior design), as well as the social ones (training/workshops design). She uses environmental design to help individuals and companies create better learning and working environments with a focus to maximize individual potential, while enhancing cooperation, productivity, levels of wellbeing.
