What is your favorite part about working at Pulse Design Group?

What I enjoy most is client engagement. I work with the client during design to understand their needs, and then design a space that is aesthetically pleasing and functional, in turn establishing positive patient outcomes. When the client shares how much they love their finished project, that’s the cherry on top!



You are one of 10 people in Missouri and Kansas who hold the CHID (Certified Healthcare Interior Designers), what does this mean to you?

Initially, my primary goal was to pursue and achieve the NCIDQ certification. After immersing myself in healthcare design, I saw the significance of also becoming CHID certified in order to be a better resource for our clients. Becoming a certified healthcare interior designer allows me to bring a unique perspective and level of confidence to my projects. The healthcare industry is constantly evolving. Through continuous education and advancement, we are able to further position our associates and firm at the forefront of healthcare design.


What would you tell an inspiring interior designer?

There are many different areas of interior design, and the industry is vast and full of opportunities. Don’t be afraid to venture down your own unique design path!


What are your favorite hobbies outside of the office?  

I have a true passion for design and am always working on organizing and sprucing things up at home. Generating organization strategies helps our family run efficiently, especially with a toddler running around! Baking is another one of my favorite hobbies. I had a strong reputation for bringing in treats to the office (pre-COVID). Maybe it’s time to start that up again!



What professional skill would you like to master?

During my time at Pulse, I have become a mentor for new employees. My goal is to be a resource and cultivate a protected space for my peers to ask questions and develop their design projects. I enjoy working with our team and sharing my knowledge to help drive continuous improvement. I am also an active member of our Quality Control Committee because I truly care about delivering the best results and end-project for our clients.


What is your favorite quote?

A verse that I learned as a child that has always resonated with me is “Now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.” I have a love for interior design and people. Things do not always go as planned, and how you react to the unexpected makes a difference. Love and empathy are important to me, and I incorporate these ideas into my personal and professional life. I do my best to let love shine through in my work and relationships.


Thank you, Jordan!
