Cary Magazine Movers & Shakers: Martha Brown

Position: Interior designer at Southern Studio Interior Design; chair of the Eastern North Carolina Design Community for American Society of Interior Designers; volunteer mentor to design students at Meredith College

Favorite accomplishments: “Following my passion. It is also very rewarding to know that with my participation within an organization, our membership numbers and involvement have increased.”

Motivation: “A strong desire to see as much of the world as I possibly can, from the Louvre in Paris to the ruins of the Mayans. Learning how people in other cultures live can bring a true appreciation and understanding to the way we live. (In business) it is a true pleasure when we transform someone’s home into something they have always dreamt.”

Biggest challenge: “Knowing when to let things go. This balance of work, life and health is a juggling act at times. Reminding myself that things seem to work out if I do my best has let my nerves and eagerness to ‘get it done’ relax.”

Fun fact: “I would love to design a dance studio for myself one day. However, I would never leave!”

Advice: “Follow all of the paths that you want to follow. When you know it’s right, do it and do the best that you can!”
