Sometimes big talent has humble beginnings. Meghan grew up in a Colfax, North Carolina; a town so small they didn’t get their first stop light until she was 10 years old. Her dad was always renovating their house, and she was right there by his side. No wonder Meghan graduated from Western Carolina University with a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design and a minor in Art. One of her professors influenced her to specialize in the kitchen and bath industry, and she hasn’t looked back.
Meghan stays current with new industry developments by serving as an officer in the NKBA (National Kitchen & Bath Association) and attending lots of continuing education programs. She’s even won a national design competition for the stunning spa bathroom display in our showroom. Her most challenging design project to date? A kitchen with six 45°-angled walls; basically a stretched-out hexagon. “It was a unique space and a unique opportunity to use creative materials,” Meghan says.
Away from the studio, she loves hanging out with her husband and dogs, playing golf, cooking and redesigning her own home every chance she gets.
If you hosted your own design show, what would you call it?
“Designing Hope. My show would educate and entertain youth about our industry. A mom designer and dad builder in Hope, California, have a daughter who wants to walk in her parents’ footsteps. One summer while building a Habitat for Humanity home, she meets a boy—the son of a mom/dad design team on the east coast. It’s a star-crossed teenage design show!” -Meghan
