Consultant / Designer, Project Manager, Lead Installer
In 1990 I resurfaced my own retro kitchen countertops with ceramic tile using a small manual tile cutter. I discovered that setting tile relaxed me. I also enjoyed the creative possibilities that were possible with the wide array of tile colors, sizes and textures available to choose from.
As the years passed by, friends and family members called upon me to do tile work for them. I made some extra money this way, and immediately following every job I invested in more tools. Before I knew it I had every kind of tool imaginable. To this day I still invest in tools and continuing education of the trade.
I had been self-employed for many years as a website designer. In 2000 after the dot-com bust things got slow for me. I decided to diversify. I ran an ad in the newspaper and landed my first big tile job. Within a couple of years I built the business up and was managing several installation crews.
From 2006 to 2010 I owned and managed two successful businesses. Even though construction was down in the economy, the remodeling business still thrived and I still found peace in installing tile, wood and other floor covering materials.
In 2010 I began taking on more and more remodeling work. Up to this point I primarily remodeled bathrooms. I expanded into kitchen remodeling and basement finishing.
Thoughts About Remodeling
Today remodeling is stronger than ever. New construction is slowly building back up. I have a great reputation in the industry both among fellow contractors and numerous satisfied clients. I’m very good, talented in fact at what I do. I continue to build a strong, close-knit network of industry professionals that have proven track records, a commitment to excellence in quality of work and customer service. This network consist of painters, plumbers, electricians, roofers, gardeners, heating and air comfort specialists, and several more skilled trade professionals.
Whatever your home improvement need, I can help.
Firstly I do most all of the data entry, input estimates, handle correspondence, run errands, coordinate events and whatever else needs to be taken care of. So I’m your typical “Girl Friday.”
