Amy has been in the industry since graduating from the University of Oklahoma’s College of Architecture in 2001, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in interior design. After working a brief stint at an architecture firm, she realized that wasn’t the place for her, as her true passion is interacting with people. She soon found herself at home working as a designer at Heenan’s and has been here ever since.
After a decade of working as a designer, the opportunity arose to purchase Heenan’s. Despite the fact that on her third day of ownership the roof fell in during a rainstorm, and the entire store flooded; she has loved every minute. “I love that my job is creative and that I get to interact with the design community and the public to help solve their design puzzles.”
She borrows her professional motto from the great Frank Lloyd Wright, “if you invest wisely in beauty it will remain with you all the days of your life”. This principle can be seen throughout the showroom, as every piece has a classic, timeless elegance. After all, it is Amy’s goal to offer Oklahoma City with the most unique, outstanding and treasured high-end pieces. “Good design is timeless, if you stick with the classic lines, you’ll be happy with it longer.”
