About Bobbi and nest designs
Designer Bobbi Buxbaum was born in Valentine, Nebraska and grew up on the Nebraska/South Dakota border. A true ranching girl, she graduated from Western Dakota Tech in Rapid City and trained as a veterinary assistant. Bobbi later became an elected official, serving the community for sixteen years. During that time she held board positions with the North Dakota Treasurer’s Association, the ND Clerk of Court and ND Recorders Associations. She also served as the chair person for the Legislative Committee and worked as a lobbyist for 2 years.
During those years, Bobbi won several awards and achievements including a commendation for Excellence in County Government. She also went back to school, graduating with a Bachelor in Business at Dickinson State University, all while raising a family. After graduation, she worked as a consultant in the Oil & Gas industry and built a virtual courthouse database system for eight counties in North Dakota and Montana. Along the way, she also began to create an impressive portfolio of design projects.
Her love for design started in childhood. While her parents were playing cards with friends, Bobbi would remake the rooms of the homes she visited! As an adult, she discovered a natural talent and gift at re-purposing living spaces for herself, friends and family. Over the years, friends grew to rely upon her instincts and abilities and, by 2012, she had developed a following of loyal fans. That year, she was contacted by a client who hired Bobbi to design their new multi-million dollar home. Turning the reigns over to Bobbi, she helped her clients build the home of their dreams.
Bobbi has now expanded NEST Designs into the Black Hills region, where she is bringing her talents, her attention to detail and her pioneering spirit to the art of Design.
From million dollar homes to startup office spaces, Bobbi Buxbaum and NEST Designs are incorporating the region’s most beautiful natural elements into our living, work and commercial spaces.
