I love the old world look. Tall cabinets, stacked molding, tons of storage…I find inspiration in the mundane parts of life, like flipping through a magazine.

What life experiences led you to become a kitchen and bath designer? How long have you been working in the industry? 

I started doing this when I was 19 years old. I was fascinated with the displays at a lumberyard where I worked. I liked to go through open houses and see what they looked like. I have been working in the industry since 1979 and with Williams since 1995!

How do you make a person’s dream kitchen or bath come alive? How can you help a client realize their unique vision for their home?

I ask so many questions to really get down to the heart of what they want. Through their questions we find out what their wish list is and make as much that can happen in the space allowed.

What do you think clients like the most about working with you? How would past clients describe the work you did for them?

It’s just my personality to make their job my own. I have many repeat clients who come back time and time again – I love these relationships I’ve built with my clients and working with them on various projects.
