Jamie Reeves

Senior Designer
Jamie's love for interior design started in middle school, when she would draft plans on her family's home computer. She followed her passion in college, earning a BFA in interior design from the University of Central Missouri.

After graduation, Jamie moved to Hawaii and joined a design firm that specializes in luxury kitchens and baths—her favorite aspect of design, along with selecting fabrics! In 2016, Jamie joined ASD, where she continues to build on her award-winning portfolio, all the while spreading her contagious laughter.

In her personal time, Jamie enjoys cooking; bike rides; her husband, Josh; and snuggles with her Puggle, Gonzo.

Lauren Berry

Senior Designer
You could almost say Lauren was destined for a career in interior design from birth. Growing up, her mother (interior designer) and father (architect), would often take Lauren to job sites, put her in charge of organizing fabrics, and she even became their invaluable test audience when either was tasked with designing a child’s space.

While still in high school, Lauren began her interior design career working at both a design showroom as well as custom workroom. In 2013, she transitioned into luxury residential interior design where she gained valuable experience working intimately with clients, contractors, and architects. Since joining ASD in 2022, Lauren has quickly become an invaluable asset due to her keen attention to detail, ability to lead projects, and applicable personal design aesthetic.

Away from the studio, you’ll find Lauren perusing estate sales/antique shops, walking her dog (Boone), or working on her personal home projects with her husband (Daniel).

Lauren Lassen

Senior Designer (E-Design & Interiors in a Box)
Lauren started out as ASD's first-ever intern in 2013. After graduating with a BA in interior design from Brigham Young University—Idaho, she immediately began working side-by-side with Amy, excited to get her feet wet in the world of design.

Amy quickly realized Lauren's great eye and easygoing personality, and she was soon offered a full-time position as Design Assistant. Since then, Lauren has been promoted to Senior Designer of ASD's E-Design and Interiors in a Box services. In this role, Lauren indulges her love of providing her clients with easy access to luxury design services.

In her free time, Lauren enjoys trying new restaurants with her husband, playing with her two children, and tending her flower garden.

Wendy Mahr

Firm Administrator
Wendy graduated from Stephens College in 2010 with a degree in fashion design and product development, and spent several years in the fashion industry, where she thrived in the demanding and fast-paced environment.

This experience transitioned beautifully to interior design, and she has been the backbone of ASD since joining the team as our administrator in 2016.

In her free time, Wendy enjoys being with her husband and three children, hanging out with family, reading, or renovating her new home (you can't beat the free tips from our designers!).

Mary Beth Leritz

Logistics Coordinator
Although Mary Beth is one of the newest members of ASD, her relationship with Amy began a decade prior, while working at Lulu Belles Fabrics. There, Mary Beth assisted Amy and the "Studebaker Girls" with estimating fabric yardage and pricing for various projects.

When Lulu Belles Fabrics closed in 2019, Amy knew she had needed Mary Beth on the ASD team. She currently serves as logistics coordinator, is ASD's biggest cheerleader, and is always ready and willing to assist with anything the team needs.

Mary Beth is married with three adult children, and enjoys cooking, baking, sewing, playing golf, and working out at Pure Barre.
