About Janel Campbell, CMKBD

Janel likens her life as a designer to that of a chameleon. “We need to adapt to our clients’ tastes”, she says. “I ask thorough questions in sensitive ways to learn what my clients want and then use creativity and organizational skills to put it all together.” Her numerous design awards and mentions in publications are a testimony to her skill, and commitment to her clients. Janel fully embraces the design/build approach to remodeling, and likes to keep the process free-flowing. “There’s a certain structure to it, but I don’t like to be too formal,” Janel says. “Our clients welcome us into their home so we can tear it apart. Obviously there is a huge trust component that we establish together. I like to make the process fun, and not overwhelming.” The end result is a home customized to their wants and needs, one that they can feel good about. Janel's education includes graduating from Oregon State University with a degree in Interior Design; and further accreditations as a Certified Master Kitchen and Bath Designer, and a Certified Aging in Place Specialist for Universal Access Design. Janel joined Neil Kelly Company in 2003 where her work has been recognized and awarded by NARI, Subzero/Wolf, Oregon Remodelers Association and the local HBA. She was selected as a member of Professional Remodeler's '40 under 40' in 2016; and her work has been featured in The Oregonian, the Lake Oswego Review, Oregon Home, 1859 Magazine, and Portrait of Portland. When she’s not cooking, gardening, or sharing time with her family Janel likes any activity that involves flexing her creative muscles. Janel compares being a designer like to being chef on the popular cooking television show “Chopped”. “You are given a basket (aka: home) filled with challenging elements and asked to produce a pleasing, balanced composition, one worthy of inviting the neighbors over for dinner,” she says.
