“Making the connection” is exactly what Tami Noel does when designing homes. Tami Noel is a “Design Consultant” for model home centers.
Her expertise is discovering and inventing extraordinary designs to win over potential customers who are purchasing new homes. It is so important that home buyers feel that they have found “Home Sweet Home” and they feel like this is the perfect home for them.
Tami knows firsthand that these homes have to make customers feel as if they are walking into their new home” First foot in the door”. Her team excels at that , their company’s mindset is “We can do this, we are professionals”, we know what we are doing, and this is our expertise”.
Staying focused and organized is a key to success in this business because you can never under estimate how long it actually takes to do a task.
Tami enjoys working with her team and producing fabulous results for her clients.
Tami, attended VTI Career Institute and received her A.A. in Fashion Merchandising. This was her beginning to her new career.
She stays busy in her local community by giving back time and volunteering for the United Way.
We here at Biltmore Who’s Who, think it is great that Tami is very active in giving back to her local community.
It is everyone’s responsibility to give back to your own community when you have received the benefits and rewards that your community has given you.
When Tami is not helping others she enjoys running, skiing, and hiking outdoors.
We would like to congratulate Tami Noel for her success and contributing to her local community.
*If you would like to give back to your local community and be a volunteer please locate your local charities in your state or county.

Another pride and joy of Trisha’s is her own book called “We Dream Chinese”. She is a licensed acupuncturist and has a very busy clinic in Milwaukee. As a practitioner one of her theory’s used by acupuncturists is called the “5 Element” Theory. Each of the 5 basic elements houses the organs in our body. The book explains how to find out what your dreams are telling you. A 3500 year old medicine from half way around the globe has been the key all along.
Trisha has her M.S. Degree in, Oriental Medicine, and she is a graduate of Southwest Acupuncture College; in 2003.
