For nearly 20 years, Kristen has been in the business of using her unique brand of verbal and visual creativity to bring her clients’ visions to life. Kristen has a long history of storytelling beginning with her marketing position with McMenamins hotels, pubs, and breweries where she learned about vision, historic preservation and the importance of infusing a little whimsy into everything she does. Later, as vice president of a bi-coastal communications agency, Kristen designed hundreds of successful campaigns for major international consumer brands. In 2012, Kristen went on to open the neighborhood restaurant, Tabor Tavern and three years later, Swift and Union. It was in process of designing those restaurants that Kristen caught the interior design bug and in 2017, formalized her interest as a student at Heritage. Today, Kristen leverages her integrative background to support a variety of commercial and residential interior design projects as a senior designer at Chancellor Designs.
