Betsy Valadez Baldwin, Associate, Senior Interior Designer

Betsy is a long-term SIX5er, helping to build our San Antonio office and then becoming our first work-from-home test case, long before it was a thing. She is a talented and passionate designer, successfully creating multiple beautiful projects across the country and has several repeat clients by request. She encapsulates what it means to create and connect our communities.

She truly is a one-woman show, she runs every part of the design process from space planning, selecting finishes and furnishings, ordering samples, writing specs, and even scheduling and managing her own installations. Most importantly, Betsy always has a collaborative, can-do attitude. She has been an integral part of our firm’s growth and is an important part of our future. Congratulations, Betsy!

Shelly Sharp, Associate, Interior Designer, Furnishings Specialist

Shelly is highly innovative in both design and process, striving to improve firm-wide success.

Shelly is an outstanding team member and collaborator. Never letting ego get in the way, she accepts feedback with grace and strives to provide our clients with the highest quality designs. A thoughtful and engaging communicator, she easily wins over clients with her charm, talent, and design direction. She is an ambassador for the firm, building solid relationships with clients and vendors that create a sense of family. 

There are no “routine” projects for Shelly. She tackles each one with an eye toward improvement and gives her all. Her spirit is highly inventive in both design and collaboration, contributing to the firm’s overall success.

A joy to work with, Shelly has an infectious optimism and “can-do” attitude that buoys the spirits of those around her. She is a huge contributor to our culture. Congratulations, Shelly!
