Please tell us about yourself and your business. How long have you been in the industry?
Judy started her career in the design profession 30 years ago. Her introduction to the field came from her father who owned a kitchen and bath business. After studying interior design at the Art Institute in Pittsburgh, Judy spent a few years in home furnishings, but then decided to specialize in kitchen and baths. She worked as a designer at The CabinetTree along with her brother and, eventually, they purchased the business. Shortly after that, her husband joined the team…a real family enterprise.
