Senior Designer

Drawing parallels to Dwayne’s own unconventional path to the world of design, Andrea Folcik spent the first 10 years of her professional life pursuing a career in her chosen field of study, Astronomy. She applied her highly technical mind to earn a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Florida, going on to work in science research, teaching, and education. A return to school where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in interior design from Harrington College of Design in Chicago, IL would mark the first chapter of the next 10 years as a licensed interior designer.

Fast forward to 2017 when Andrea joined the DBI team with a dually technical and creative expertise in AutoCAD, corporate commercial projects, luxury residential, high-end multi-family properties, and model homes. Her signature aesthetic is informed by her Northeast roots and Floridian soul, a blend of cool metropolitan function and earthly grounding form. Equal parts meticulous and artistic, Andrea approaches each project as an opportunity to educate and inspire.

She began her higher education studies as a Pre-Pharmacy major but her passion for historic art led her to obtain a BA in Art History from the University of Central Florida. An internship at the Menello Museum of American Art led to an opportunity as a Key Account Manager at an art gallery in Santa Monica, CA where she handled such prestigious clients as 20th Century Fox, Sony Pictures, The Recording Academy, LACMA and the Getty Museum among others. It was there that she discovered her passion and penchant for design, returning to school to pursue an Associates Degree in Interior Design in 2009.

Junior Designer

GABRIELA SELEGATTO

Gabriela Selegatto attributes her Brazilian heritage and exposure to different cultures to her innate passion and gifted talent for drawing, art, and design. From a young age she participated in exhibitions and competitions where she explored her skills with pen and paper, in turn leading her to develop an interest in architecture and design. In 2011 she began her studies in Architecture and Urbanism at the Pontifical Catholic University of Campinas in São Paulo, Brazil where she earned her bachelor´s degree in 2016. It was during this time that she honed her craft working on residential and commercial projects for a Brazilian architecture and design firm. A lifechanging academic exchange program to the University of Seville in Spain would come to shape her aesthetic and continue to serve as an influential source of design inspiration. As she traveled through 16 countries over the course of a year, Gabby absorbed the history, architecture, and cultural nuances to supplement the comprehensive academia of her program.

In 2016, Gabriela moved to the US with her husband where she became a fur-mom to a little wiener dog named Flora. Gabby flexes her artistic muscles with her expertise in drawings, 3D renderings, and software for the DBI team.

Director of Business Development

SHERRI ROZZI

Sherri Rozzi has a passion for design in her DNA. Her parents’ retail furniture stores served as her playground as a child, which would later inspire her to pursue a career in the design industry. Both parents instilled an appreciation for creating a sense of home as her father moved the family of 12 frequently to “bigger and better” houses, each of which her mother would fully redecorate. They eventually migrated from the Midwest to Florida’s warm climate, sandy beaches, and endless opportunities where Sherri still resides today, 26 years later, with her husband and two children in Fort Myers.

Before joining the DBI team, her most recent position for seven years as Director of Business Development for __ yielded a tremendous volume of relationships within the luxury home industry of Lee and Collier Counties.

An active member of her community, Sherri serves on the Lee Building Industry Association (BIA) Board of Directors. She also is involved in several committees within the Lee BIA and Collier CBIA, including the CBIA Sand Dollar Committee where she served as Co-Chair and Sand Chair in 20__ and 2016, respectively.
