Shae Wilder

With a degree in interior design and passion for architecture, it was no surprise I found myself in the kitchen and bath industry. After spending just shy of a decade as a kitchen designer and project manager in the San Francisco Bay area, it was only natural to progress into the cooking side of the kitchen with appliances. For the past 10 years I have enjoyed working directly with the specifier community providing high end appliance product knowledge and customization specification resources needed to complete a seamless, functional, and of course stunning project.
