After completing a Master's degree in Forensic Science in 2012, Cheyla moved
to Denver, CO, to continue her military career and train in public safety.
Her life took a turn when she had to change careers due to a personal situation and ventured to follow one of her other passions, design. Cheyla completed a degree in Interior Design, and the same year she graduated, she was awarded the "Rising Star" award by the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). The award opened doors for her to start working at Working Spaces, a company that designs commercial interiors for banks, hospitals, and schools.
During her first year designing for Working Spaces, ASID awarded her the Emerging Professional of the Year award, which recognizes the
work and growth of new designers.
In 2021 Cheyla decided to return to Puerto Rico and
begin to work on small renovations in family and friends' houses. That's where InNova Haus came from because she was concerned about helping people create more functional spaces adjusting to the cost of each person.
Cheyla lives between Puerto Rico and Saint Thomas, USVI, where she also provides interior design services. She is working on a Master's degree in Interior Architecture and Design and is also part of the National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA).
