As the plan alterations designer, Tricia is responsible for incorporating changes to plans in accordance with customer request and architectural specifications.
What do you like best about working at Design Basics?
We run a tight ship, yet know we also have a life outside of the office, so I really appreciate the flexibility offered when needed. I also really enjoy working with people – both my co-workers and our customers. Working with our customers to learn more about their wants, needs, and desires, then translating this into a house plan that meets the way they live is what keeps me excited about what we do at Design Basics!
What made you decide to be a designer?
I liked interior design in high school and took an exploring Scouts class at the University of Nebraska – Omaha. That got me on the path of wanting to be an interior designer. But, when I actually got partway through college I liked the more technical side of design, drafting, and designing the actual blue prints and changing blue prints to make designs more functional.
If you couldn’t be a designer, what would your second choice for a career have been?
Travel agent. Or, a professional pool player – 8-ball or 9-ball!
What do you like to do in your spare time?
I like to watch my son play sports; go to the movies and concerts. We also have a Miniature Australian Shepherd puppy named Diesel that keeps us busy, yet entertained.
Favorite place you’ve ever been and why?
Italy. The beautiful architecture and painting, fun clubs, and the people were really nice. Most of all, I got to go there with my mom.
Place you’d most like to visit and why?
Australia. It looks beautiful. I think going to a Rugby game and visiting the Outback would be really exciting.
Name an interesting thing someone might not know about you:
As I mentioned, I enjoy playing pool. I once had someone approach me about getting into the professional circuit and being my manager. And, one time I participated in a Karaoke contest and won $100!
