Designer Q&A

Where were you born and raised?
Born in Laconia, New Hampshire and raised in Virginia Beach, Virginia

How did you get started in the industry?
I have been a graphic designer and artist for over 20 years, and I have always had a passion for architecture and interior design. I was hired at Lowes as a kitchen designer in 2018. Working in a high-volume store was extremely stressful but I stuck it out because I loved designing kitchens. Fast forward to the present and I am living the dream at McCabinet.

I love being part of a team of fun and talented designers that support me every day.
