What does your company do? CCG is Utah’s premier office design and furniture company, having created over 20 million square feet of workspaces. We specialize in understanding an organization’s culture and from that, creating a beautiful environment where people want to work. Every space we design is unique—from large corporate campuses to luxurious private offices, and everything in between.

CCG is Utah’s exclusive Haworth furniture dealer, but we represent over 200 furniture lines and we also offer interior walls and glass, space planning and interior design.  We are the trusted, one-stop solution for any size workspace project. Ultimately, our clients choose to work with us because of the people at CCG. This includes helpful experts for every step of each project: design, project management, onsite experience, workplace strategy, and installation.

What do you do for your company?  Having joined CCG in March of this year as VP of Client Development, I am focused on building a winning culture around CCG that resonates with our clients and partners and leading our client development and sales team to success by differentiating CCG from others in our industry.

What are you working on right now?  My biggest focus, as still a “newby” here at CCG, is on identifying new markets, building our client development team and getting to know our longtime clients and partners.

Best career advice you’ve received? Know your worth personally and professionally.

Best career advice you’ve given? Do what you love, be good at it and don’t compromise yourself along your journey.

What is the top lesson you’ve learned navigating the pandemic (personally and/or professionally)? People who know me, know that I am the true meaning of an extrovert.  A lot of my social interaction stems from the friendships that have grown through my work, so losing that was difficult personally and professionally.  I had to redirect my energy into being OK with being “still” for the first time in many years.

What is one thing people don’t know about you? I am full of useless trivia….and some useful.  I also know how to light a fire without a match or starter fluid.  Ask me how and I’ll show you!
