Elizabeth truly is a Renaissance woman, combining her creative flare with unparallel business acumen. An actor by degree and trade, she doesn’t so much “manage” your move as direct, produce, orchestrate, and beautifully stage it. Elizabeth has overseen projects for and had a managerial role in a myriad of companies including two of Washington’s top interior designers, a modern dance company, one of DC’s finest restaurants, and a decorative painting company. As one of  Beyond the Box’s  project manager, we know you’ll appreciate her penchant for meticulous detail and warm, relaxed management style.

Zabella Ghazarian

Soon to graduate from GW’s Interior Architecture and Design Program, has long designed and created culinary delights. An experienced cook, she naturally excels at organizing kitchens from a chef’s point of view, thinking about how each prep and storage space can best be used by clients with differing priorities.  Of Armenian decent, Zabelle is keenly aware of every family’s cultural identity. She brings inspirational historical, artistic and culinary elements to each living space she helps to design, making each one unique and “just what the client ordered.”  We can’t wait to see (and eat in!) the restaurants Zabelle hopes to design in the coming years.


Eliza Lavine

Eliza Lavine is one of the most organized people you’ll ever meet. She came to Beyond the Box as a Junior in GW’s interior architecture and design program. Now a senior, she’s practicing her goal of running her own residential design firm in her role of project manager, working directly with clients as they downsize, creating inventories of items going to a myriad of locations including auction, consignment, donation and extended family members. Eliza, also a tech wiz, turns around CAD designs in short order so you can visualize what your new living space, complete with your own furniture and art, will look like post move.
