Dixie Willard Design • Greenback, TN
I got my design degree at Chaminade University of Honolulu. (Yep, Hawaii. And the campus is stunningly beautiful!) I have worked for an architecture firm where I could see the ocean from my window, worked as a designer and bookkeeper (weird, right?) for a high-end furniture store, and done e-design for Pottery Barn Kids, PBTeen, and West Elm. In the middle of all of that, I studied my ever-loving butt off to earn my NCIDQ certification. After travelling around the world (Air Force) my husband and I have finally settled down in our forever home here in East Tennessee (where we’re close to our extended family, but not too close). I'm such a design geek that when I’m not preventing design disasters for my clients I'm taking continuing education classes for fun. I also love reading design magazines and reading design blogs so I can keep up with the latest trends. Other than that, I'm a fairly nerdy chick with a snarky sense of humor, I adore my two Chief Morale Officers (my pups!).
