DIDAA Board Members 2018



President: Jackie Shuya

This is my first year as president and I equate it to taking a plane ride. A bit of anxiety as you board but once in the air excitement takes over to reach the destination. And the anxiety has definitely been replaced with excitement and pleasure of forging new friendships with the people on the executive both professionally and personally; as well as expanding my network with people in the industry and being part of the decision making process of the organization. ~ Jackie


Vice President/Secretary/Special Events: Patti Holmstrom

Being involved in an ever changing industry, I find being part of this Executive allows me to be in touch with current trends and technologies. The field of Interior Decorating and Design is filled with so many opportunities to become engaged with the design community.

Past President: Amanda

For the last 10 years I've enjoyed being a part of the DIDAA Executive as trade partner director and then as president. One of my favorite things about being on the Board of directors was that I got to know peers in the industry. I love the diversity of our backgrounds and opinions and how we collaborate to make the DIDAA successful.
~ Amanda


Treasurer: Lina O'Donnell

As this is my second year on the executive and I am excited about working with a new group of ladies with varied backgrounds. I look forward to getting to know everyone better and enjoying a positive experience on this executive!  ~ Lina
