Meet the Team
Great designers are the difference between a good space and an amazing space. Our designers are passionate, experienced and committed to bringing a complete design experience to your door.
After working in interior design for 25 years - 10 of which was dedicated to kitchen and bath design - and completing my interior design training at BCIT, there is still nothing that motivates me more than the excitement I see in my clients' eyes when we've created a new space just for them. Whether it's the layout we've created, the colour of their new cabinets, or maybe the backsplash we've chosen, I share in their joy every step of the way. And it inspires me to make their kitchen or bathroom even better than they’d envisioned.
My customers and their surroundings provide much of the design inspiration I need, but I also look to Houzz, Pinterest and many of the design shows on HGTV. Additionally, regularly attending kitchen and bathroom trade shows helps keep me up-to-date on the latest trends.
I've been working in the kitchen and bathroom industry for over two decades. It's an honour to be given the opportunity to create a kitchen design that complements the home, reflects the style of its owners, and fits with how they live each day. My goal is for every client to feel like they are my only client - to provide them with a truly memorable experience.
Our 2020 computer design program allows me plan and visualize their kitchen or bathroom design, and create amazingly realistic 3D renderings. I take great pride in being able to quickly transform my clients' design ideas into something they can experience visually.
In every new kitchen or bathroom I create, I am driven by the same goal - to make a difference in the lives of my clients by contributing to a sense of well-being in their homes. The best outcomes are always achieved through collaboration, and I love working with my clients, reviewing each detail and acknowledging everyone's ideas. It's the best approach to creating a space that is true to their vision.
I've been creating dream kitchens and bathrooms for more than 25 years. My practical experience is supported by my Degree in Interior Architecture, earned from the University of Oregon, along with continuing education. Living near the ocean and mountains is a source of inspiration for me in my work.
I understand why homeowners can sometimes feel overwhelmed by the idea of replacing their kitchen. For almost four decades, I've taken great pride in making the process easy and enjoyable while helping my clients create their dream space.
Designing over 5,000 kitchens is certainly a milestone I’m proud of. Looking at it as a puzzle, I’m able to explore different ideas and work with my clients to blend their tastes and lifestyles while ensuring every element we choose fits the space for both beauty and function. Design harmony is the goal for each kitchen I get to help my clients create.
With a dedication to residential design for over 18 years I’m very happy to be joining the Merit Kitchens Design Centre team as their newest Kitchen and Bathroom Design Specialist.
Studying Interior Design at BCIT was the best career path I could have taken. I am quite passionate about designing, and it shows. Oprah Winfrey once said “Your home should rise up and greet you”. Through carefully detailed kitchen and bathroom design plans and ensuring my clients are involved from concept to completion, I live to create spaces to match your lifestyle, improve your overall wellbeing, and of course rise up to meet your expectations.
A kitchen or bathroom renovation can be stressful when you don't have the right team. With more than 20 years of project management and operations experience, I am part of a great team here at Merit Kitchens Design Centre in Langley, British Columbia.
As Merit's Operations Coordinator I help navigate our clients through the stress of a kitchen and bathroom renovation. Once you and your Merit kitchen designer have finalized the details I ensure all is completed to your design plan specifications from material ordering to the fitting of your kitchen cabinets and countertops. And should you need anything after your renovation is complete I will help your designer with that too.
As the installation coordinator at Merit Kitchens Design Centre Langley, my job begins once your cabinets are ordered. My goal is to make the delivery and installation of your cabinets an enjoyable, stress-free experience. To make that happen, no detail is too small and nothing is more important than consistent, accurate communication.
My priority, every day, is to make sure that our clients and installers are informed and everything goes according to plan. And if an issue arises, I make sure it gets addressed quickly and efficiently.
