My experience in cabinets started in 1991 in Alberta.My first job was as a delivery driver. As business increased, the company decided to put me in DIY, where contractors bring in measurements, and I would design the cabinets.I decided to go into working with installers and service techs. After that I did inspections of kitchen installs for 15 years, I decided I wanted back into cabinet sales. I was overjoyed to have an opportunity to work with Mid Island Cabinets.

Having close to two decades of experience in the cabinetry industry, I bring my knowledge and creativity to life in each project. I grew up in a shop with my dad who taught me many skills with tools and the understanding how something is built. After two years of design school, I began my career in the cabinet industry in the Okanagan. A quick adventure in Northern BC owning my own company and it was back to home on the island. If I am not obsessing over my current projects, I can be found in my own shop covered in sawdust. My motto: “Improving Vancouver Island one kitchen at a time!”
