Having grown up a globetrotting Air Force brat, Tenecia’s love of design began early as she was exposed to a variety of cultures and was constantly redesigning her own bedroom. After receiving her Master of Fine Arts in Interior Design, Tenecia honed her technical skills working on high-end luxury residential and commercial spaces in Washington D.C.  

However, she wanted to pursue her love for television design and Tenecia felt she needed to move to where TV is made, New York City. With no job prospects there, but knowing she needed the freedom to travel for interviews, she resigned from her full-time position and began the hunt for a new job. She spent two months traveling almost daily between New York and Washington DC, changing into her suit in the bathroom at the Grand Hyatt and pounding the pavement for interviews and cold-calls.  

During a night of insomnia, while browsing the job ads, Tenecia came across a posting from a production company for a design consultant for a hit show on HGTV. Tenecia was offered the position and in true "quicker than a New York minute" style, was also asked to start the next day.

Though she didn’t yet live in New York, she immediately accepted, knowing she could, and would, figure it out. The years since that life changing event have given Tenecia experience, influences and great excitement. 

After a successful career primarily designing for television, Tenecia finally started her own private client studio, {sweet t design studio}. Using her unique faster than lightning makeover experiences from production and her strong project management skills, Tenecia built up a clientele base of residential, office, and restaurant projects and, gratefully, continues to be successful.  

These days, Tenecia and her design skills can be found gracing your television screens, most recently as a featured designer for Travel Channel's Hotel Impossible. She also proud to be a real estate salesperson, affilliated with Citi Habitats, helping her clients find their new home.
