Hi, I’m Mina Fies.
I’m a passionate award-winning designer, zen remodeler and trailblazing entrepreneur who helps people love their homes again. I know how important it is to feel at home in your home and how the right space can be a source of renewal and restoration for your entire family. Your home is truly your sanctuary.
As Founder and CEO of Synergy Design & Construction and author of the Renovation Roadmap™ my approach to home remodeling and the client experience fueled our company’s success despite starting in 2008 against formidable economic circumstances.
I use my training in Interior Alignment® (Instinctive Feng Shui), and my lessons learned from a life on the road with my long-haul truck driving mom, to help others embrace the spaces around them to live the healthy, happy lives they’ve always wanted. This includes our office environments – I regularly consult with organizations committed to ensuring employees are empowered and enlivened by their environments both at work and at home.
As past-president of the Greater DC Chapter of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO), my passion lies in fostering leadership and innovation in others. I am proud to be a sought-after international speaker who covers topics from the neuroscience of the space around us to how to avoid a remodeling nightmare. I’ve been featured in national and local publications, including NPR’s All Things Considered, House Beautiful, and more, and love contributing what I can to help people feel and be their best.
