We are happy to introduce you to our newest team member at Hatchett Design Remodel…. meet Clark!

Clark is a native of Hampton Roads. He spent his early years in Norfolk’s Colonial Place. When he was 14, his family relocated to Poquoson, and he graduated from Poquoson High School. Clark continued his education at Ferrum college where he played football as a fullback.

After college, he realized construction was his strong hold, so he started a career in residential construction. He made a big move to Texas where he started working as a home builder, and soon he transitioned into custom home building.

After Clark and his wife, Moriah, had their first child in Texas, they decided to move back to Virginia. They are raising their young family, three children and a dog, in Seaford.
We sure are glad Clark came back to Hampton Roads, and we are grateful to have him as our newest Project Manager. To help you get to know him a little better, we asked him a few questions:
How did you become a part of the Hatchett team?
I stumbled across the job opening online. When I went in for my interview with Don and Michael, I felt so comfortable and knew Hatchett was the right fit for me.
Why do you think Hatchett is a good fit for you?
Having worked in multiple sectors of the residential industry, I’ve never worked with a company that’s as organized and intentional with every project as Hatchett is. Everyone here works together, and it shows in every finished project.
What is your favorite thing about working at Hatchett?
The quality of service and materials. I genuinely enjoy working with everyone! The sales and design teams do a great job of presenting and relaying information, and my fellow project managers will always lend a helping hand when it’s needed.

Meet Our People: Katie

Hatchett Design Remodel is happy to announce the newest designer to join our team. Welcome, Katie!

Katie earned her degree from Virginia Commonwealth University’s Fine Arts Interior Design program, and she has 20 years of experience as an interior designer.

New Hatchett Designer Katie

Before joining our team, Katie worked for the Dragas Companies, a local home builder in Hampton Roads. Katie’s responsibilities covered all facets of new construction from plans and specs to designing their model homes & community centers. Before Dragas, Katie lived in Annapolis, MD for 8 years and worked for a large design firm where she specialized in model homes and high-end residential design.

Bathroom Remodel by Katie

Katie puts remodeling expertise to work in her own home, like this bathroom.

She’s excited to bring her passion, experience and knowledge of interior design to her new clients at Hatchett. To help you get to know Katie, we asked her a few questions.
How did you become a part of the Hatchett team?
I was looking for a new job and was excited to see that Hatchett had an opening. At my first interview, I felt like I immediately connected with Jessica & Meghan. In addition to wanting to hear about my work experience, they were genuinely interested in getting to know me. They made me feel very comfortable, and I just knew that they would be great people to work with.
Why do you think Hatchett is a good fit for you, Katie?
I love being an Interior Designer. I thoroughly enjoy the challenge of improving a space and really making a difference in how my clients enjoy their homes & their lives… and the people at Hatchett share that feeling. The Hatchett team takes on projects of all shapes and sizes, and no detail is overlooked in bringing our client’s projects to life.
What is your favorite thing about working at Hatchett?
As a people person, I love the interaction with my new coworkers as well as my clients. No day is ever the same, and that’s perfect for me. The company culture is warm and friendly, so I really enjoy my work day. I also love the flexibility it gives me to maintain a good work life balance.
Katie family
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
I currently live in Virginia Beach with my ten year old son, Blake, and our Shi-Poo, Zoe. We’re fortunate to have a big family who all live locally in Hampton Roads, so we spend as much time as we can with them. In my free time, I also enjoy cheering for Blake at his games, planning my next home project for my own home or just spending a beautiful day at the beach.

Meet Our People: Jenn

Jenn is our Bookkeeper at Hatchett Design Remodel. As a spouse of an active duty solider in the US Army, Jenn, her husband and their three boys are currently stationed at Ft. Eustis. She is a native of Florida, but they have decided to make Hampton Roads their forever home. After years of moving around the globe, Jenn’s life experiences and her interests are wide and eclectic. Her interests include – but are not limited to – musical theater, roller derby and volunteering.

Jenn and Husband Military Ball

Being an active volunteer and serving on the boards of various organizations has helped Jenn and her family quickly adapt to whatever community they found themselves in. She looks forward to growing some roots here in Hampton Roads, and we are certainly hope she stays at Hatchett for a very long time.

Jenn Bookkeeper

If you haven’t yet had a chance to meet Jenn, here are her answers to a few questions that will help you get to know her better.
How did you become a part of the Hatchett team?
I started in the construction industry when I was 19 years old as a receptionist and copy girl. I learned every part of the business office that I could, from permitting to blueprint reading and take-offs. I worked my way up to Payroll Specialist and Bookkeeper before the Army took me overseas, and I switched to tax accounting. After (finally!) receiving my degree in Accounting at age 40 and moving back stateside, I continued tax accounting at 2 other duty stations – but I was never happy. Once we moved here to VA and decided to settle here permanently, I started looking for a position that would bring me back to the industry that I fell in love with so long ago.
What is your favorite thing about working at Hatchett?
The people and the process. I know that is technically two, but I cannot just pick one. They go hand in hand. Without the type of people here, the process would not work – no egos and no drama. Just everyday, hardworking people dedicated to doing the best they can for each and every client (whether it is a signed client or tracking down a referral to give someone, because what they need is out of our scope). That is the type of ethical, honest, and above-board culture I want to work for, and I am lucky enough to be a part of that value system here at Hatchett Design Remodel.
Jenn Roller Derby
What do you like to do when you’re not working?
Everything! I am so new to the Hampton Roads community that nothing is off limits! Music concerts, festivals, local hikes, poking into new restaurants, discovering new places to shop, sporting events, just about anything goes! This area is so rich in things to do that I am discovering new places and things to do all the time (even during a pandemic!). I am an active volunteer and currently serve on the board of my local community pool, as well as a foster mommy for litters of kittens with The Heritage Humane Society in Williamsburg. I have also recently been accepted in the Newport News Master Gardener’s program that will start in the fall and am excited to start that as my spouse will be heading to Korea for his last deployment before retiring!

Meet Our People: Suzy

After over 20 years of climbing the corporate ladder in global organizations, Suzy has joined our team here at Hatchett Design Remodel. She traveled all over the world in her previous career, and now she’s happy to stay home and raise her adorable (and silly) little girl. There are great personal rewards to cultivating a home, and Suzy looks forward to helping her clients improve theirs by remodeling their kitchens, bathrooms and additions.

As a military kid, Suzy is no stranger to moving around frequently. She is grateful for all the experiences and lessons her travels taught her over the years, but she is excited to start growing some roots here in Hampton Roads. She added, “I’m ready for a change and to do something with a more personal touch.”

She has a marketing degree from Auburn University – War Eagle! After graduating, she lived in Atlanta for several years before moving to Hampton Roads in 2011.

Suzy

We are thrilled that she found her way to Hatchett Design Remodel, and we are certain our clients will enjoy working with her as much as we do. If you haven’t yet had a chance to meet Suzy, we asked her a few questions to help break the ice.

How did you become a part of the Hatchett team?

I have some dear friends in common with the Hatchetts who helped make the connection.

What is your favorite thing about working at Hatchett?

The personal aspect of remodeling, talking to clients and figuring out ways to improve their lives for many years is very appealing to me. I love Hatchett because of their outstanding reputation for top notch quality, family environment, and the way the entire team treats clients.

Suzy Loves to Cook

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

I enjoy spending time with my 4 year old daughter, husband and chocolate lab, especially when that time is spent on our boat. My favorite thing to do in the world is to cook a humongous meal for a kitchen full of people, and I have cooked for my entire church many times. As an Elder in my church, I love attending Bible study. I also love all types of fitness, and as a certified yoga teacher, I thoroughly enjoy teaching paddleboard yoga.
