Hi, I’m Annie. It’s so nice to meet you!

I am a serial entrepreneur with a multi-dimensional background that always comes back to one core mission: helping others. This website is dedicated to my interior design business, which opened in 2019. I have always loved interior decorating, and my earliest memory of that was when I was about 10 years old. I helped my little sister pick out her bedroom’s new paint color and then proceeded to hang her artwork in collages on her walls, rearrange her furniture, and create a fun space for her and her beloved toys. Fast forward to 2013 when I purchased my first home. I completely redesigned the cringe-worthy interior and my kitchen renovation was featured on Houzz.

In 2017, I decided to trade in cold, snowy days in New Hampshire for warm, sunny days in North Carolina and relocated to Raleigh. I built and designed a semi-custom home in Raleigh, NC and that is when I realized that I had a deep passion for interiors and beautiful home spaces.

In 2019, I launched my design business when I helped my best friend renovate an investment property in downtown Cary, and I guess you could say the rest is history!

more about my background

I have a BS in Mathematics Education, I’m a certified math teacher in the state of New Jersey. My passion for math helps me excel at breaking down complex problems into fundamental concepts. After relocating to New Hampshire in 2010, I stopped teaching and broke into the world of business, working as a corporate product developer and marketer for a $3 billion global CPG company. I went on to complete an MBA program while working full-time at my corporate job, and graduated with a 3.75 GPA in 2014.

After years of experience teaching, sharing my knowledge, and learning about the business world, I left my corporate job and founded Style Collective at the end of 2015. By leveraging digital marketing, email marketing, growth hacking, PR/media outreach, in-person events, and more, I grew Style Collective from an idea to a thriving six-figure business in under a year. I continue to run Style Collective today, more than five years since founding.

Being a multi-passionate entrepreneur, I decided to go for my dreams and open my interior design business in early 2019. I have been working with clients all over the triangle region and virtually across the country. Shortly after getting into interior design, I obtained my real estate license. Helping a client make their home beautiful, sell their home, or buy their dream home is such an incredibly rewarding and fulfilling experience for me. I am so grateful that I get to make a living doing so many things that I am passionate about!
