I have been in the Kitchen & Bath industry since 2003 and I have been a Certified Kitchen Designer (CKD) since 2010. My extensive education includes an Associate’s Degree in Architectural Technology with an Interior Design focus, and I am also a certified ALA Lighting Specialist through the American Lighting Association. With in-depth experience that includes drafting and rough/finish carpentry, I have a thorough understanding of the complete design and remodeling processes from concept to reality. This allows me to work closely with contractors and provide detailed floorplans, working drawings, and instructions. Outside of work, I love outdoor adventures! I love hiking and fly-fishing. I completed a personal goal to summit Longs Peak in Colorado in August 2018. This Level 3 technical climb is one of the most dangerous hikes in the world. It required years of self-motivation, preparation, physical and mental training, patience, research, extreme survival and safety training, as well as experience. The view from the top was incredible and well worth the wait. I am already planning my next adventure! I also enjoy spending time with my family and volunteering with youth programs and Girl Scouts.
