Laura Visser

Sales Associate / Nanaimo 

Laura began her journey in the cabinet industry in 2009, as a junior kitchen designer in Parksville, BC. She soon realized that kitchen design was a path she wanted to follow, and quickly advanced in her position. She moved on to Alberta and began working as a Builder Sales Account Manager for a large cabinet company, where she honed her abilities in kitchen design working with contractors and builders. Laura still maintains excellent relationships with her Alberta peers and clients to this day.  Later, opportunity brought Laura back to BC’s lower mainland in 2016, where she began working for a custom cabinet company as a Design Consultant. There she broadened her knowledge in custom cabinetry and design. Wanting to settle down, Laura moved to her hometown of Nanaimo in 2018, and began serving the Mid Vancouver Island region.

Over the last decade, with her broad knowledge of all aspects of cabinetry and design, Laura’s projects have included everything from small renovations to large multi-family projects. Laura’s advanced skills in project management, her attention to detail, and her innate ability to dedicate herself to each customer sets her apart from others. She sets her level of customer service to a high standard. One aspect of the industry Laura thoroughly enjoys is training others in product and design but her real passion is working with clients to make their vision become their reality.

Julie has always had a creative eye and loves nothing more than turning a vision into reality. She studied 2 years in Interior Design at Garneau College in Quebec City and after moving out west, she also enrolled in a 2-year Interior Design Technology program at Lakeland College, where she graduated in 2008 with honors. Her ability to develop client relationships based on respect, trust, and confidence has been the key to her success as a designer. Skilled at creating tailored designs under a variety of budgets, styles, timeframes, and requirements, Julie guides her clients through every phase of the design process. Using her vast experience in project management and her background in commercial and residential construction, she is able to facilitate beautifully crafted, functional spaces that represent a client’s heart and mind.
