Pushing boundaries and exploring options is part of CarrieBeth’s interior design approach to help clients get the best value for their investment. Her knack for merging the client’s needs with the latest research on space planning, products, and materials to deliver impactful design improves student engagement and instructor satisfaction.

CarrieBeth has been with the firm since 2019 and has led many multi-million-dollar PK-12 projects in the Education studio. She loves the process of creative exploration and how interior design impacts people on a personal and physical level, especially critical in education.

While interiors are her passion, CarrieBeth also enjoys jumping into conversations about exterior brick patterns, landscaping details, acoustics, and mechanical duct sizing, all part of creating spaces that serve users well. She loves how the firm’s approach to interior design is entrenched in a holistic design process and is not treated as an afterthought.

CarrieBeth, her husband, Alex, and her son love living in Colorado and enjoy hiking and outdoor adventures, game nights, and traveling, especially when paired with a local brewery or winery.
