Liz is a southerner at heart, but has the Southwest in her soul! Having spent the last 30 years in Tucson via a 10 year stint in the Colorado mountains, she and her husband, Dave choose the Tucson foothills as their home. It has become the perfect fit for their lifestyle and professional paths. As a graduate of the University of Denver, a career in Interior Design was a logical choice that allows her to help people achieve their goals while using her creative talents for space planning and design. After a 10 year partnership in a large local design firm, Liz opened Liz Ryan Design in 1999 locating her office in a convenient central foothills location off Skyline Drive. With a full service design studio and an Arizona Interior Design Contracting License, Liz is able to oversee complete remodels or new construction projects from start to finish. As lead designer, Liz gives her clients a hands on approach, which allows them to be involved during each phase of their project. Liz is an Allied Member of the American Society of Interior Design and has been recognized both locally and nationally for her award winning designs. Traveling is a passion for Liz and her husband, so there is always an adventure to look forward to allowing her to expand her cultural design awareness as well as refresh her creative energies.
Dave joined Liz’s design team after over twenty years working with local and national builders in new home construction sales and marketing. His background in construction gives him unique insight and a depth of knowledge for the challenges involved with both new construction and remodeling. An eye for detail and follow up allow him to assist in facilitating the execution, streamlining, and expediting all stages of the design project process. When not in the office or in the field, Dave enjoys all the amenities offered by our exceptional Southern Arizona Environment, including; road biking, running, hiking, and skiing.
Jen became a part of our design team in May 2007 upon completing a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design from Northern Arizona University and an Associate’s Degree in Computer Aided Drafting from Pima CC. In her 10+ years here, Jen has her hands in everything from producing award winning designs, to marketing & public relations, meeting with reps and clients, training new employees, accounting and AutoCAD. She’s a perfectionist who does what needs to be done…whatever that may be on any particular day. Her attention to detail has made her an invaluable asset to our design firm and the local ASID chapter where she volunteers regularly and maintains her Allied Membership. In her free time she enjoys spending time with friends and family (she is a fifth generation Tucsonan!). She also enjoys being outdoors as much as possible as well as hiking, traveling, reading and spending time with her
boyfriend fiance! She’s a HUGE sports enthusiast (Go Steelers and Wildcats!) and many of our clients, vendor reps and even delivery people enjoy chatting with her about the latest happenings in the sports world.
Maintaining accurate financial records are an essential part of any successful interior design firm. Laurie has worked with Liz since 1999, bringing the knowledge and experience gained from the many different businesses she sees through her independent bookkeeping service. Laurie visits our office monthly to review each transaction and process necessary tax forms. This allows us to keep focused on what we do best; interior design and client satisfaction. When not working, Laurie enjoys reading and spending as much time as possible with her grandkids.
Lauren joined the team in early 2017 bringing her exceptional customer service skills and bubbly personality. She handles all the day to day procedures and is a huge asset! As a new homeowner, Lauren is greatly inspired by all the designs and finishes she sees daily working here. Her greatest accomplishment is being married to the man of her dreams. They have a beautiful home together where they raise two spoiled puppies and spend their weekends remodeling and upgrading.
Joining our team in 2017, Jazmine has quickly and effectively been able to handle our computer aided drafting and rendering. As a senior studying architecture at the University of Arizona, she doesn’t have a whole lot of free time (yet!) Jazmine is prompt, patient and detail oriented. As busy as she is, she always seems to still have a smile on her face!
