She has been called a force in the Chicago Interior Design Industry by Chicago Business Journal and recognized on multiple media platforms for her bold aesthetic and innnovative style.
Interior design has been in Alissa’s blood since she was a teenager. The interior drawings she made at the age of 14 still hangs in her childhood home. Today, Alissa is an accomplished designer who enjoys working with a diverse group of clients through all phases of a project’s process. From concept, to planning and design, to completion, she is passionate about seeing a vision come to life that reflects each client's style and personality.
Alissa’s process is mindful of a building’s history and architectural characteristics and incorporates them into each design regardless of the project’s scale or size. She brings a modern upscale aesthetic, yet her range in style and experience has allowed her to create beautiful bohemian designs, Victorian renovations and breathtaking industrial spaces.
Prior to joining RDID, Alissa worked at M. Swabb, an interior design firm in San Diego.
Alissa earned her degree from Concordia University in Austin, Texas.
