About 

I have been in the kitchen and bath industry for over 15 years which has provided me with many opportunities to work and develop my craft through a variety of roles.  I am very detail oriented, possess a keen eye for proportions, and I am comfortable working independently as well as in a collaborative team environment.

I joined Christopher Peacock Cabinetry in 1998 as a lead draftsperson to head the Company’s transition from hand drawing to AutoCAD.  Three years later, I became Christopher Peacock’s personal design assistant where I learned to design and manage projects through their lifecycle.  After 6 years with Christopher Peacock, I joined Klaff’s Inc. as a Project Design Manager and Design Director. As Project Design Manager, I oversaw projects through completion as well as shared my knowledge and expertise with staff experiencing challenging design issues.  As Design Director, I was responsible for designing the Company’s new showroom in Scarsdale, NY.  I have helped design a number of displays for the Company’s private label cabinetry line and helped design all projects for high profile clientele and Showhouses.  

I have been fortunate to have worked with many brands, including Christopher Peacock, Mark Wilkinson English Bespoke Fitted Furniture, Rutt handcrafted cabinetry, and Neff Kitchens.   I was an integral part in a bathroom and kitchen design that won a NKBA (Kitchen and Bath Association) award.
