Having grown up the globetrotting daughter of two Air Force officers, 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.  

When the pull of New York City and television design couldn't be ignored Tenecia 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, Tenecia came across a posting, while browsing job ads, from a production company looking 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. The years since have given her experience, influences and great excitement. 

With a successful career primarily designing for television both on and off camera, Tenecia finally started her own private client studio, {sweet t design studio}. Using her unique 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.  

She now combines her design background with her real estate expertise to provide a personalized and all-inclusive experience that best meet her client's needs.
