In my role as a Lead Designer and Design Team Manager at BHI, I have the privilege of being fully engaged in every aspect of our clients’ experience. From our initial onboarding meeting to the final touches in their homes, my primary focus is to keep each project well-organized and on track, all while ensuring an enjoyable process. My passion lies in crafting beautiful and functional spaces, drawing inspiration from our clients’ unique lifestyles. What truly makes my job rewarding is the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with each and every client, ensuring that they have a wonderful BHI experience at every stage of their journey.
Being a Lead Designer at BHI allows me the ability to use both my technical side and creative side to bring together projects from start to finish. With over ten years of experience in architectural design, my passion lies in the details! From coordinating millwork profiles all the way to selecting the perfect piece to furnish the space, I enjoy the challenge that each new project provides. The best part of my job is getting to know each homeowner and being able to work with the entire design team to make their vision a reality!
As Assistant Designer at BHI, I work with the team closely throughout all stages of our projects! I am involved in a lot of the behind the scenes work that goes into each project including pricing, CAD plans, organization and scheduling of workrooms, design work including e-designs and making sure projects stay on track and are organized for our team and the clients. I also get to be involved in site visits as well as installs which is when we get to see our vision and hard work come together. It’s truly a team effort when everyone’s hard work brings a project to life! I am fortunate to be surrounded by an amazing group of women whom I continue to learn from each and every day.
Being a part of the BHI and Brooke & Lou team has allowed me to combine my finance and accounting background with my passion for interior design.
I have always been a numbers person and enjoy using them as a tool to review past performance and to achieve our goals. I am inspired by the passion, dedication, and creativity of our team and I love the role I play in the overall team that makes our customers’ dreams come true in their homes.
For as long as I can remember, I have had a love for design and helping others. I was also always encouraged to do the things I love. Fortunately enough, I get to do those things every day with people who are just as passionate about design and helping others as I am. One of my favorite parts about working in the design industry is being able to create a space that someone loves and feels comfortable in. As the studio assistant, I can do a little bit of everything and continue to learn from the fantastic people working around me. The best part of being a part of BHI is knowing we are all working hard to help our clients achieve what they had dreamed of for their homes.
I love when things match/align, which makes doing accounting for BHI and Brooke & Lou perfect. I’m process oriented and always looking to streamline and improve, knowing that anything internal will only help our clients and customers get the best experience. It’s inspiring working here and seeing what our team does to make people’s houses feel like home.
As a creative professional, I’m always searching for something that creates that ‘spark’. Something that fuels my fire and pushes me to dream bigger. Luckily, I work in an environment where that’s not hard to find! From our beautiful, light-filled studio to my smart, sensational co-workers, it’s easy to feel inspired every single day. However, as many members of our team would agree on, my biggest inspiration comes from our clients and customers. They are thoughtful, diverse, generous, and each have a unique story to tell.
I have spent most of my professional career taking care of people. Whether it is making sure that clients are being taken care of, the business organization is running smoothly, or ensuring that the needs of the employee’s are being met. I love that I get to bring that experience to Brooke & Lou, a place that I love being at every single day. I feel inspired by the creativity that our team surrounds our office with on a daily basis and I love going above and beyond to help this company grow.
As the Operations Specialist, I have the privilege of working with our products from start to finish. I often find myself wondering how each piece will be styled once it reaches its final destination. I love any opportunity that I get to meet our clients and customers in person at pop-up shop events that we are part of. I look forward to meeting you at one of our upcoming events!
As the marketing coordinator, I have the privilege of working on many different projects for Bria Hammel Interiors and Brooke & Lou, enhancing our online presence by working on our websites and social media platforms, ensuring our products and amazing interior design projects reach and captivate our audience. With a background in marketing and a passion for all things design, I love seeing our beautiful products find new homes and the design team create inspiring spaces for our clients. I thrive in a fast paced environment and enjoy working with my amazing team!
