Meet Tiffany Parker. A few years ago, she decided to make a major career change. She wanted to escape her 9-5 job and pursue the growing home staging industry. She wanted to be creative every day, and so she enrolled in QC Design School’s Home Staging course. Shortly after, she opened her own business, Parker Interiors.
Company name: Parker Interiors Staging and Redesign

What motivated you to start your career as a design professional? After years in corporate office settings, I was motivated to start my staging business by a desire to be active, transform spaces, have an impact, and express creativity.
What are some highlights of your career so far? Besides several homes receiving multiple offers after one day on the market, the greatest highlights so far have been the constant growth and expansion of the possibilities of staging. Staging is so ubiquitous today; there are opportunities to use it in so many different environments. I was even asked to do a set design for Dr. Maya Angelou.
How did your course prepare you for working in the field? QC Design School’s Home Staging course provided a strong baseline as I entered the field by introducing me to what I would be expected to know. Certainly a lot of learning can only be acquired on the job, but the course helped me to feel prepared for whatever might come my way.
Do you have any advice for anyone starting out with their training or career? Just be ready for an adventure. Staging is serious physical and mental work. Be willing to be self critical. Take risks. Spend as much time on the business side as you do on the design side and grow smartly!
