Interior Designer with an MBA on a Mission: Remaking the Way We Remodel
Having overseen the creation of four of her own custom homes across the country and designed and managed the construction of dozens of significant client projects since 2002, Gail is in her element when she is applying a masterful blend of creative, analytical, and project management skills to create ultimate results that bring smiles all around.
As passionate as she is about color, texture, materials, and style, she is equally concerned about functionality, process, and budget. This rather unusual combination of strengths is among the qualities and characteristics that set her apart. Her attentive listening to what is said and unsaid helps Gail paint the picture that resides in the mind’s eye of each client. Bringing each project to life in exquisite detail with sound project management is her highest priority.
Gail’s masterful and specific planning before the launch of each project circumvents misunderstandings, cost overruns and the potential for disappointments.
In a field in which stories of remodels gone wrong are legion, Gail’s actions and consistently great results are guided by her abiding belief that remodeling should be fun and rewarding for all.

Gail – The Personal Side
Digging in the dirt (also known as gardening) and boating along the waters of the San Juan Islands, Desolation Sound and beyond are favorite ways for Gail to relax and enjoy life. When not overseeing design projects for herself or her clients, she is happiest in her kayak, paddling around the coves of the Pacific Northwest.
