hauna Ward, a former pharmaceutical rep, realized her knack for design—and a shining opportunity fueled by Covid.
She and her husband moved into a house at Weatherby Lake in November 2019, making mostly cosmetic changes to a solid floor plan that featured gorgeous, high arches and windows overlooking the water.
Shauna took on the task of general contracting, lifting the house out of the 1990s through updates in paint, tile, lighting and plumbing fixtures.
Her enjoyment of the process prompted her to make the leap to become a professional home renovation consultant.
“I enjoyed the blessing in disguise,” Shauna says. “It was an opportunity to learn, and it became a passion of mine after hearing horror stories from others. I want to help people get connected with the right people.”
She embraces all walls—including the floor and ceiling—and her talent for finishes is evident throughout the home.
“There are just so many things I like!” she says.
