Joli Sanders, Founder

Joli Sanders, a native of Houston, made Oklahoma City her home in 1995 after graduating from University of Texas in Austin, with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology.  She began post-graduate work in Interior Design at The University of Central Oklahoma and became a certified interior designer.  Joli was drawn to the interconnectedness of design & the psychology behind how environments impact people.   Joli practiced commercial interior design in Oklahoma City for 11 years, primarily for VanStavern Design Group.   She currently works in the design field as a sales consultant.  Joli’s desire to work with the local community in a meaningful way, and help people who are at a critical point in life, combined with the training & skills of a designer have led her to establish Focus on Home.
