I am a Certified Interior Decorator with a lifelong passion for interior design. I work with our clients to bring their ideas to life. My first priority is to listen to our clients and understand their needs and the use of the rooms in question. Form without function is useless. I am able to take your ideas and bring them to fruition or completely design a room based on your desires.
Along with certification from the Vanguard School of Interior Design, I bring management experience and organizational skills to John Rogers Renovations as well as fresh ideas for distinctive interior design. My capabilities range from fine-tuning the tiniest detail to managing the many facets of a of a large-scale renovation. I knows that a room needs not only to be stylish but practical as well since I am a busy wife and mother of five beautiful daughters.
I am a Florida native (GO GATORS!) where I lived for twenty one years. I moved to Denver for three years before calling Georgia my home, where I have been since 1998. I have 2 children that are very active in school and sports. During the summer of 2013 I completed my degree, graduating with honors in Business Management at Kennesaw State. This was a big accomplishment for me as a working mother of two but a goal I set in order to complete something I started nearly 18 years earlier. Previously, before having children, I worked for a large fortune 500 company for about eight years as a business systems analyst.
I have known John and his family many years and am proud to call them great friends. I work part time for John doing many tasks but on a weekly basis I process his payroll and accounts payable. I also work full time a pediatric specialty medical practice. I have seen John’s business evolve over the years and it is so exciting to see so many happy homeowners as a result of his hard work and dedication to them. I know firsthand that John lives his life and runs his business with the highest level of integrity; first and foremost, John goes out of his way to listen to his customers.
I am currently the Senior Estimator with John Rogers Renovations. My duties include estimating most of the jobs that we produce and also writing the contracts for those jobs. My goals are to produce accurate estimates and contracts that are so detailed that there is no question what is to be executed each job.
I have been in the construction industry for more than twenty five years and have held positions including Project Manager, Purchasing Manager, Warranty/Quality Control Supervisor, Site Superintendent, and Builder. Responsibilities within those positions ranged from fiscal to purchasing and inventory control, customer service, sourcing out and developing partnerships with vendors and suppliers, supervising various contracting crews, carpenters and laborers and inspecting work, codes enforcement, and focusing on maintaining a company’s integrity while committing to total customer satisfaction.
My professional certifications and acknowledgements include ICC Inspector for building, plumbing, mechanical and electrical; State of Georgia Builders License; State Erosion Certification; Greater Atlanta Homebuilders “SMC Professionalism Award”; Quality Builders Warranty’s “Builder of Integrity” Award, and yearly continuing education classes in my chosen profession.
Design & Production Assistant
I am a former “military brat” who has happily settled in Georgia after years ping-ponging around the left coast. I came to John Rogers Renovations with my BA in Communication, and a Minor in Visual Arts from DePaul University in Chicago. Most recently I have worked in project management and design. Design is an integral part of my career and my life’s passion. From flowers to motorcycles, I bring my attention to detail, design aesthetic and problem-solving ability to every planning and design challenge.
I am an online marketing, social media and blogging professional who has worked with home builders and remodelers across the country for fifteen years. Before focusing on the marketing side of the business I worked one-on-one with clients to design every aspect of their new homes. My passion for my family and my home drives my interest to explore and share all that is new and trending in home renovations and design with John Rogers Renovations’ large online audience.
