Your B&T Team
I am a native of Norfolk VA - graduated from Old Dominion University with my major in Accounting. After college, I worked in the hospitality industry for 15 years in Accounting & Hotel Management. I changed industries in 2005 to construction when a friend I met at one of the hotels I worked needed help with their local businesses - B&T Kitchens and Baths. I have embraced this industry and this company with the same passion and commitment as I did in the hotel industry. Although very different industries and different companies, there are many similarities. It is all about relationships and enjoying what you do!
At B&T Kitchens and Baths, I found a team with a focus on its customers and an unwavering passion for reaching for excellence in everything. One of my roles here at B&T is to make sure everyone who walks through our doors, receives the best experience possible with their kitchen or bath remodeling project. We continue to review our processes to make sure we exceed our client’s expectations. Our employees are some of the BEST in Hampton Roads, and I feel lucky to work with such a talented group of people.
Kitchen design is an extension of each client and becomes more than just "a space"; it is a place memories are created. At B&T Kitchens and Baths, our goal is to design what you dream and to communicate the process every step of the way while exceeding your expectations! Even though we offer cabinetry and kitchen/bath remodeling services, our number one priority is building genuine relationships with our customers, with our industry partners and with each other.
Please call or visit us at our Design Studio in Virginia Beach. We are here to help you make your dreams come true!
After receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture in 2000 and my Master’s Degree in Kitchen & Bath Design in 2002, I worked for 8 years as a Kitchen Designer & Sales Associate. While I loved designing for clients from all facets of life, I felt my talents would be better suited in the operations side which was more of a behind the scenes position. That is what led me to B&T Kitchens and Baths.
Since August 2012, I have worked for B&T Kitchens and Baths as Design Coordinator. Although you may not see me (since I work behind the scenes), I do work on every job that comes through B&T. I am responsible for ordering your cabinets, countertops and hardware. It is important to us that you enjoy and love your new kitchen or bath, and part of my job is to review for accuracy to ensure a successful project! I do this by making sure your order is correct and all the necessary materials are ordered so it arrives at your home complete and ready for installation.
From your designer to the installers, I am one small part of a team of people who work diligently and tirelessly to make your vision a reality.
Originally from Norfolk, I have lived in the Hampton Roads area all of my life. My personal core values include family, creativity, love and integrity. I carry those values with me into my work life as well as my personal, building lasting relationships with my clients and treating them as family. I started in this industry when my oldest son was 6 months old. Now the mother of both a middle school and high school student (GASP), I have over 14 years of kitchen and bath design experience.
I enjoy working with home owners and contractors, alike, focusing on projects ranging from simple remodels to major overhauls. When working with my clients, I find one of the most important services I can offer is to LISTEN. I use the smallest, seemingly insignificant details as inspiration to transform a space into a functional work of art. My goal is to provide value in the form of a highly personalized experience resulting in a meticulously planned space. Each project, large or small, is as unique as the person and home it is intended for. That is what keeps this profession so exciting!
As a native of Virginia Beach, I have always been inspired by nature, music, the ocean, and other people. I work to remain in touch with my senses at all times and find my surroundings alluring and enriching whatever they may be. With my Bachelor of Fine Arts from Longwood University and a background in custom kitchen design, I have found a passion for creating functional but beautiful kitchens and bathrooms.
Most of my memories growing up take place in my family’s kitchen. Whether I was doing homework at the island, learning to bake with my mom, or wrestling our pups on the floor, our kitchen had many functions and brought together so many important relationships. Every day I work hard to create kitchen designs for clients that can foster the same type of relationships I experienced in my own kitchen while incorporating their own traditions and ideas. Kitchen design has been a fulfilling career for me and I hope to continue growing and serving families in the Tidewater area.
Originally from Fredericksburg, VA, I spent most of my youth in the Naples, FL area. Having grown up on job sites within my family’s custom cabinetry design firm, my affinity for residential design was quickly developed leading me to the Savannah College of Art and Design where I received my BFA in Architecture in 2011.
I strongly believe in a well-traveled soul – not only for the experiences you gain but also to expose yourself to different cultures and design styles. Being able to converse with clients, with a firsthand experience of a place, is beyond exciting to me – especially if we can incorporate little details into the design giving each project its own unique personality.
With over 10 years of professional experience in cabinetry, I’ve worked with firms throughout Florida and Manhattan on projects both local and international which have helped develop my design skills from the most traditional to the ultra-contemporary. Whether your project be a remodel or new construction, large or small, I’m excited to help make your dream space a reality.
