AJI Client Liaison
I have always loved building relationships with people and have never met a stranger. Getting to know customers and learning their personal style is one of my favorite parts of my Allen and James role. I am constantly learning so much about the design world and seeing my style evolve while working here. I look forward to helping customers and clients do the same.
I love the collaborative process between creativity and function when it comes to design - thinking about how to make a client's home work seamlessly for them while imagining different ways to do so. With a background in product design, I always want to think outside of the box, push the limits, try new things, and strive to make every design original, thoughtful, and personal.
I find design inspiration in the beautifully styled showrooms of High Point Market, in poring over samples of fabrics and wallpapers, and especially in our clients’ homes. That’s where I get a sense of how the client lives, and it’s where I encounter those architectural elements that set this home apart and spark the ideas for the design of the space.
I find inspiration in the colors and patterns of nature, the waves on the beach after high tide, the colors of seashells, patterns of leaves. I also find inspiration in the work of great designers and artists who stretch my imagination with new perspectives, let me see my own work in a new light, and convince me to try something new.
I am always honored to assist with someone’s private and personal space, their home. To hear from our clients that they love their new space and that it makes them feel good and comforted makes all the work worthwhile. I enjoy collaborating with this great team – they make every project exciting.
I love being part of a team that knows how to work hard and have fun. My role is to make sure all of our orders are accurate and on time – and keep clients informed of their progress – to ensure seamless delivery and a happy outcome for all!
Store Manager and Buyer
I love helping people find something for their home that brings them joy or helping them find just the perfect gift for that special person. Our shop, The Sherrod, is a fun, one of a kind place filled with art, accessories, furniture, plants, and treats that give me almost endless opportunities to delight our guests and brighten their days.
I have always had a passion for all things design, merchandising, selling, and fashion. I love creating beautiful displays and making personal connections with people to better assist them with their vision for their home or a gift they are giving. I’m extremely proud to be part of the Allen and James team, and to welcome people to our warm, inviting boutique.
