Angela, on How She Got Here
Good things don’t always start with a laugh or a smile…sometimes they start with a long, hard cry.
Sight unseen, I signed a lease on the rental house that I was going to spend the best graduate school days of my life in. I was super pumped. It looked so cool from the street…a classic bungalow with a great courtyard…I had passed it every day for a year and imagined what amazing dinner parties I would have if I lived there.
Well…things aren’t always what they seem, right? When I finally got a peek inside, I cried my eyes out until I realized that all the tears I could squeeze out wasn’t going to make that nasty, lifeless house any cleaner or any cooler; but a trip to the $5 discarded paint can section at Home Depot might.
Within a week, a passion had reared itself; about a dozen $5 cans of paint, a couple jugs of Clorox, and a few hand tools later my imagination was now my new pad. Many amazing parties and good times ensued.
I haven’t stopped imagining, designing, building and renovating since.
That passion transformed into a career and over the past fifteen (15) years I completed nearly $500 Million in new construction and renovation contracts designing, building and renovating everything from houses…to hotels…to community centers in Haiti…to the Pentagon and multi-building campuses in DC…to shipping containers in Afghanistan.
I started District Restorations because I want to get back to helping people on the scale of person to person and helping the community by investing my creative energy and and time into it. I have had an amazing career in D.C. and have been a part of some of the most reputable teams and projects, but working for entities and agencies just doesn’t get me excited to get out of the bed in the morning. I want to get back to letting my passion drive my everyday…to be excited to get out of bed and work directly with the people in my local community to have the most positive impact that I can. It’s just that simple.
Favorite thing about DC: sitting on the corner of the Lincoln Memorial and Banneker pool.
Favorite thing about my neighborhood: my neighbors because they are awesome. And, the fact that I can ride my bike anywhere…to a Nats game, to Screen on the Green, to the National Mall, to see a movie, have dinner.
Favorite Place in my neighborhood: Oohh’s & Aahh’s because it’s just flat out good food and reminds me of home.

Stephanie, on How She Got Here
She said “I’m fine. Don’t worry about me. “ But that’s what single mothers say.
At age 9, I found my mother lying on the cold tile floor between the toilet and the bathtub, moaning quietly. She was unable to move without getting violently nauseated. At age 38, my mother was having a severe stroke. While my mom persevered after months of physical therapy, I was forced to discover my strength during this time and become the rock my mother needed me to be.
It was then that I first discovered my caregiver instinct.
That caregiver instinct developed into a problem-solving, solutions-driven career as a highly successful consultant at a top-ranked international architectural and engineering firm working on everything from major highways to wind energy facilities.
I started District Restorations to get back to focusing on one-on-one experiences. While my consulting career fit my personality, after 12 years of working on large-scale projects, I found myself disconnected from the results that I was so good at creating. I longed to get to back to seeing the tangible effect that my work could have, such as a smile or a laugh on a loved one’s face. Now I get to see those smiles again during strategy sessions with my clients on how to envision and create better lives for their futures and for our DC community.
Favorite thing about DC: going to the Maine Ave Fish Market to pick up oysters (and yes, the photo is not just for show…I do shuck them myself!)
Favorite thing about my neighborhood: being able to commute to everything I need via bike, and mostly along designated bike lanes (thanks DDOT!)
Favorite place in my neighborhood: The Royal—I love the all-day neighborhood cafe concept and it’s great people watching on a busy DC corner
