the results are in, and you are *drum roll*…

You know how to research and really think through a problem or new idea.

Now it’s time to start planning how to create your dream kitchen.

The Planner

Some amazing things about you!

  • You take your life and responsibilities seriously.  And don’t plan to get taken advantage of with this upcoming remodel.
  • You are a born problem solver and you appreciate a highly functioning kitchen and realize yours is anything but.
  • You will take the time to really consider things and not jump at the first offer or bid.  Nothings getting by you (no ma’am)

But…some things might be getting in the way 😜 …

  • That super power of a brain you have may tend to over-analyze things and take so long it actually costs you more money.
  • Even though you love researching and looking into all the options, you would love to have someone to help you sort through them all and actually get it done.
  • Knowing how to look into something is different than knowing how to do it well, so you want an expert that can guide you to the right materials and style for YOU.

so you might be ready to take some steps to move forward and transform your kitchen.

The Good News?

Creating your dream kitchen with my help is easier than you think!  Here’s why:

Reason #1

You can uncover the “best” design layout that works for YOUR space in just 2 weeks (and it doesn’t come from the person behind the counter at The Home Depot).

Reason #2

You can design cabinet functionality around “how you use” YOUR kitchen.

Reason #3

You can stay within your budget so you’re never surprised or strapped for cash (or maxing out your Visa card)

  • Could finally show love to those you care about by being able to prepare a stunning meal with your family.
  • Eagerly volunteered to host family dinners, holidays, and neighborhood wine tastings because you were proud of your beautiful kitchen.
  • Were inspired to deck out your kitchen and decorate it for the holidays because you were proud of your space (and no longer ashamed).
  • Enjoyed more dinners at home because you looked forward to cooking in your new kitchen (not to mention saving $$$ because you weren’t eating out all the time).
  • No longer had to pull stuff stuff in the front of the cabs to get to the stuff in the back, because everything will now be visible and accessible.

Introducing my signature process called DFIO… Design from the INSIDE out.

I created it after watching so many great planners struggle with the same issues over and over.


I start where most designers never goassessing what you have and how you use it. This quickly helps you get a sense of how to design your new space.

Step #2

Next, we apply my TOP 7 cabinets, like modern soft closing drawers in special sizes and unique spice inserts that magically organize your tumeric from your cinnamon. These 7 cabinets solve 90% of the problems I see every day.  And VOILA, we have a perfectly designed space with maximum functionality just for YOU.

Step #3

Now that we’re confident that the new space will have the right cabinetry, we move onto the FUN part and pick the colors and materials.

Once we can visualize what your new kitchen will look like, we can start getting bids and negotiating to save you thousands. It’s all included in my Kitchen Remodel Rockstar design group.  You get your new cabinet layout within 2 weeks, guaranteed and 12 full months support to implement your plan. It’s what you do BEFORE you call a contractor, architect or anyone else…you start here.


I’ve been helping women create the kitchen of their dreams for LESS moolah for over 27 years! In fact, I’ve designed and remodeled more than 10,000 kitchens.

I’m a unicorn in the kitchen remodeling space (a sweet combo of being an actual female cabinetmaker (I live and breathe functional cabinets) + a kitchen designer (I love to make things look pretty).

Basically, I’m like the PB & J of contractors.

This unique skill set lets me guide my clients to the best version of their kitchen that works without overspending on things that don’t “cut the mustard.”

When I’m not looking at flooring or planning someone’s dream pantry, you can often find me cooking [insert favorite thing to cook], gardening [what type?], or hosting a cocktail party (#lemondrop martini lover here). In addition, I’m an unashamed “cat mom” of 5 spunky felines who entertain me daily with their “cat gymnastics.”

You’ll never find me on a roller coaster or river rafting #scardycat. But I do love empowering women to take charge of their kitchen remodels and move forward with confidence.

10,000 kitchens can’t be wrong, right?!

“I would’ve never thought of designing my kitchen around what I use the most! What a brilliant concept…and this design group has saved my marriage! We have been fighting over this remodel for 4 years and now he is on board because of the steps you helped us take…you really ARE the husband whisperer!”
