“I enjoy working with customers, using my knowledge and design ideas, to realize their dreams. In the end, it’s not just about a great design but enjoying the process along the way.”
I began working for DeWils in 2014 years and have learned every facet of cabinet design, construction and install through a myriad of roles.
I started as an apprentice installer, learning techniques and insights that have enhanced my capabilities to produce quality designs with minimal technical issues. I’ve worked in sales and marketing, which has provided me with a deeper knowledge of our products and how to best serve the customer. I then began working as a designer for retail and builder, designing both remodels and new construction. My attention to detail and being skilled and knowledgeable in the whole process from design to install gives me an edge to ensure that my customer’s needs are completely satisfied.
I graduated from Marylhurst University with a degree in the Interior Design Program.
I have over 15 years experience in Kitchen & Bath Design with a knowledge in both commercial and residential design.
I love the kitchen & bath industry as a whole and how it has evolved to where it is today. Designing kitchens with the many different clients that come in with individual styles, tastes and ideas allows for so much creativity to happen in one place.
Clients are very savvy these days and can gather a lot of information, sometimes more than they can sift through. So, what I love about designing kitchens is taking in all of the information at the beginning and helping clients narrow down or expand all of the ideas into a space that is functional and beautiful for them. In the end, the kitchen and other cabinetry needs to reflect the client’s needs and style not mine.
My best tip to anyone who is struggling with making design or product choices is to understand that we live in a world that is full of a million ideas and we can borrow some of them, but never all of them in the same space or time. Do what you love with the ideas you have and be your own trend.”
Bring inspiration pictures and a layout or blueprint of the room.
You will meet with the designer who will be committed to your unique project through the whole process.
Be prepared to talk budget, time frame, wood types, stain or paint colors, appliances you’ll be using and most importantly, how you see yourself using the space.
When stepping into the DeWils Design Center, you can expect to gain both style inspiration and practical advice to turn your new home or remodel plans into a reality.
Your designer will send you emails with renderings of what the cabinets would look like and you can discuss changes.
Once the design has been finalized, your designer will do a final measure of the space and you will have an in-person meeting at the Design Center to go over the final details.
With an approved final design, your designer will place the order with the factory and set up a time for the installation of the cabinets based on lead times and set deadlines.
For remodel projects, the customer will need to make sure that all existing cabinets have been removed and walls and floors are prepped and ready for cabinets to be delivered and installed.
