A house is only as sturdy as it’s foundation. That’s why Hatchett Design Remodel is built on the strongest foundation we could find… our people!  From design through construction, each member of the Hatchett team provides an outstanding remodeling experience for our clients.

Before you remodel your kitchen, bathroom or addition, we’d like you to get to know us better through our “Meet Our People” blog series. This week, meet Eileen.

Eileen is one of our Designers. Originally from Manassas, VA, she graduated from The University of Kansas School of Architecture, Design, and Planning in 2014 with a degree in Interior Design. As part of her course work, Eileen held multiple internships with interior design firms in the DC Metro area, and we were delighted that she chose to start her career at Hatchett Design Remodel.

To help you get to know Eileen better, we asked her a few personal questions.

How did you become part of the Hatchett Team?

I came to visit a friend at CNU for her birthday and drove past the Hatchett building on my way. I made a mental note to look them up and was excited to find out they were looking to hire a new designer. Graduation, a couple interviews, and here I am! I’m so lucky to be working at Hatchett.  It’s crazy to think that I may not be here if I hadn’t visited my friend.

What is your favorite things about working at Hatchett Design Remodel?

My favorite things about HDR are the people I get to work with and the constant learning opportunities. Everyone here is wonderful and every day is different. I thoroughly enjoyed school, and I love that I get to continue to learn on the job.  It’s really better than school, because I actually get to put everything I learn into practice. I also love that people can bring their dogs to work on occasion.

What do you like to do when you’re not working?

In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing the flute, and dancing. I taught dance in Kansas, and I’ve performed in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

I also love watching college basketball… especially the Kansas Jayhawks!  Rock Chalk!
