Walk into the studio on any given afternoon, and a bright voice from the back will shout. Maureen will step out of her office to greet you and insist she pour you a drink of your choice. Working behind the scenes, first as the firm’s bookkeeper, and also the Studio Manager, Maureen flows between keeping operations tight and encouraging the team to dive deeper into their creativity. Though expertly skilled in business, she has the same respect for beauty that all of Rae Design Group boasts. If you ever catch the team in hot pink slippers, you’ll know who bought them.
It is evident how the team recognizes Maureen as a voice of reason, mixing words of wisdom with their light hearted laughter, and yet her words echo through the studio “Brittany, the day you stop dreaming, is the day I quit”.
Studio Manager/ Bookkeeper
She is a storyteller, and an intent listener; and while her design work thrives from this, Brittany’s warmth in making others feel known emanates through her whole life. This welcoming nature is unmistakable once you step into the atmosphere she has established; most likely with Prince tunes playing in the background and chocolate within reach.
Brittany continues to educate herself in the precise science of artistic expression. The ones who get to work everyday with "B.Rae" note her brilliance and the gentle way she displays it; focused on excellence without intimidation.
Building Rae Design Group from the ground up, Brittany has never departed from what comes naturally to her; an eye for beauty with an ear for the backstory.
Combining her joy for creating personalized spaces with years of studying multiple aspects of design, led Brittany to establish RDG. Graduating with a degree in design from NYSID in Manhattan and then following opportunities she believes she was blessed with, gave her the invaluable experience of business, architecture, and cabinetry.
A champion of people, a devoted wife and mother, every part of Brittany reaches out to people first. She is inseparable from her commitment to seeing people, homes, furniture, and art for all that they are, where they’ve come from, and what they could be.
After accumulating years of accounting work in rigorous NYC firms and abroad, Maureen received a bittersweet chance to use both sides of her brain, as she likes to say. With ease she can tell you how she has endured difficulties with both grit and grace and how it brought her to where she is today.
