Edmonton Kitchen Craft Retail Store Experience: 16 yrs
I am a graduate of the Interior Design Technology course. A friend that I had graduated with had started working at Kitchen Craft and had encouraged me to look into a position. I started from the ground up, learning about the cabinet industry by working in the customer service department.
I eventually worked my way up through field services, visiting clients’ homes to inspect the installation of their Kitchen Craft cabinetry. These positions were so valuable to me in my preparation of becoming a professional kitchen designer. It helped me realize the key part of the design process is communication. Listening to the clients’ needs, wants and desires. If you can understand what a client wants out of the process you are then able to create and make suggestions to suit their needs.
What inspires me? I find it really satisfying to have a potentially undesirable starting point and being able to create a wonderful new space for a client. I love a challenge!
