 Position: Residential Designer

Years with Chandler's: 15 years                  

Background: I was born in Huntington, WV and attended Chesapeake Schools. Later, I studied Criminal Justice at Ohio University. I am married to Greg and have one daughter, Caitlin. For the last fourteen years, I have worked in the kitchen industry. I spent five years selling countertops to dealers and homeowners in a family business. The next five years, I worked for Chandler's dealer division selling cabinetry, countertops, and all the cabinet manufacturing necessities.  I enjoy designing a kitchen that is tailored to fit the needs of my customer. Each customer is different, therefore I look at each kitchen as a new adventure. At Chandler's, no project is too big or too small and customer service is our priority.
