We had the good fortune of connecting with Alejandra G. Brady and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alejandra, why did you pursue a creative career?
I am a creative. I have always been a creative. As a child, I used to arrange and rearrange the furniture in my Barbie townhouse daily. I did the same with my bedroom and my dorm room in college.
I have always loved creating beautiful spaces for myself, my family and my clients. Creating a business where I can do this daily brings me authentic joy. My goal is to design spaces which invite balance and harmony into their life.
When I decided to pivot from a strictly design business and study Feng Shui under a Master, I did so to take my work to the next level. My goal is to not only produce a space that looks beautiful, but to have a space that my client’s say FEELS as beautiful or more, than it looks!
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I am most proud of incorporating Feng Shui into my life and my business. I am always my own guinea pig first! I do not tell people to do something if I have not first experienced it.
After applying Feng Shui principles to my own home, and experiencing the profound changes in my own families life because of it, I decided to study and become a certified Feng Shui consultant. At this point, I had been designing the interiors of beautiful homes and offices for almost fifteen years, but I felt something was missing.
Incorporating Feng Shui helped me unlock a new and wonderful set of principles to combine with my years of high end design success. With these combined experiences, I now deliver beautifully designed spaces that also improve the lives of my clients, their families or their employees.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We live in Sedona and have lots and lots of company, so this is an easy question! When friends and family visit, we always hike. Some of our favorite hikes include Doe Mountain and the trail at the base of Doe, which is called Upper Aire. We also love taking my husband’s Jeep up Schnebly Road until we reach the small parking lot about 3 miles in. Then we jump out and hike Cow Pies and Hangover. The views are incredible! Then we head over to the Pump House for brunch. I feel no trip to Sedona is complete without a hike on Bell Rock, which to me, is magical!
We never miss a chance to eat at Mariposa, Elote, The Vault, 89 Agave Cantina. There is also a great little Mexican food place called Tortas del Fuego which makes amazing Flautas! Sedona Beer Company in Uptown has become a recent favorite – the French fries are heavenly! The food scene is incredible in Sedona, so thank goodness for all the hiking!
If shopping is on the agenda, and it usually is, then some of my favorite spots are Bohemain Dreamer, Dream Magic Art Studio, Touchstone Gallery, Exposures Gallery and Mystical Baazar. We will usually hit up the shops after hiking and brunch.
So many people come to Sedona to have a spiritual experience. I encourage them to get sessions booked with some of my favorite healers, Anahata at Shamangelic Healing and Amanda Romania at Atlantis.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My Shoutout goes to first and foremost, my husband Art, who has always encouraged me to spread my wings and fly. When I told him I wanted to take time off, study Feng Shui and completely change the way I looked at everything around me, he handed me the tuition money I needed to complete my studies.
My second Shoutout goes to my Feng Shui teacher, Karen Rauch Carter. She opened my eyes to the incredible world of energy and Feng Shui. I studied and became certified under her tutelage and guidance.
