Coming from a military family, Ariel grew up in several states; two of which were California and Rhode Island. Having had to pick up and start over in so many homes, she found her passion for design. She recognized that design can have a huge impact on ones emotional and physical health; so, she chose to go to school to learn how she could create spaces that people could find joy and peace in. Ariel took two years of business school prior to pursuing her bachelor's degree in Interiors Design from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design; since graduating, she has worked for design firms and furniture stores in Rhode Island and in Texas. Ariel moved to San Antonio about 3-years ago with her husband Daniel, and they have found San Antonio to be such a wonderful place; it is full of life and full of wonderful people. On their days off, they love to explore the city and the surrounding towns with their puppy, Kairi. You may even find them at a local sporting event, cheering on the teens that they mentor in their church youth ministry.
