Page developed her passion for sustainable or "green" design while in school and has become increasingly enthusiastic about this growing field, researching new materials and technologies and incorporating them into her designs whenever possible.
Creating 3 Fold Design Studio allowed Page to develop personal relationships with clients and design spaces that meet their functional needs with creative and innovative solutions.
