Conversations with the Inspiring Sofia Galinski

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sofia Galinski.

Sofia, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’m the owner of Nxt Lvl Interior Design and we are a full-service interior design firm located in Scottsdale, AZ.
I started off by helping friends and family restyling their homes and eventually I got myself a degree in interior design. I truly love the process of creating an idea followed by a final concept. I’m grateful that I can do what I love for a living, and at the same time raise my 3-year-old daughter and mini design assistant Kennedy.

Has it been a smooth road?
I’m originally from Sweden and it was a challenge to study abroad in my second language. I still remember my first day at a fabric design company, when my manager at the time asked me to pick up the phone. Thinking of the anxiety that went through my body at that point and reflecting on where I am today, running my own company – I feel proud. It’s been a long journey but if you set your mind to it, whatever struggles you might have in life, your dreams can come true. It’s important to challenge yourself!

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into NXT LVL INTERIOR DESIGN story. Tell us more about it.
I have my own interior design firm in Scottsdale, AZ. I transform my clients’ ideas and visions into reality by helping them to design their dream home. With my design experience working with the best materials, trades & visions sets my design work apart. Once a project is finished, I love watching my client’s reaction. Their big smile from loving their new home is what makes me proud to be an interior designer.

What do you feel are the biggest barriers today to female leadership, in your industry or generally?
Breaking through the stereotypes is the only way to break through the barriers! Women supporting women is what makes us strong. I’m a role model for my 3-year-old daughter and showing her female leadership is very inspiring! My philosophy is to try to stay positive and not focus on any barriers.
