I was born and raised in Fuquay Varina. I grew up working in our family business. Growing up watching my parents run a business in the new construction industry taught me a lot about hard work and life in general. My Dad was and still is the hardest working person I know. My parents and my older brother, taught me how to treat people the right way.

I have been married to my wonderful wife Joanna for almost 14 years. We have 3 awesome boys and 1 perfect little girl. Our house is busy! I firmly believe God has a plan and a calling for everyone in life. At age 21, I was called into pastoral ministry. I have been serving as senior pastor at our church in Graham since 2008. Working with people and seeing them grow is a passion that I have.

I have been in the remodeling industry in the Durham area for about 7 years. From day one with CQC I knew I was at the right place. The value that this company places on it’s customers and employees is beyond amazing. In my free time you’ll find me spending time with the kids on a baseball or football field, with a fishing pole in hand or in a hunting blind. My wife and myself enjoy traveling to the mountains and doing Missionary trips each year.

A true southern belle, I was born and raised here in North Carolina. As a graduate of East Carolina’s NKBA accredited Interior Design program, joining the professional design field was a smooth transition and I immediately fell in love with the kitchen and bath industry. I have been pursuing higher levels of K&B education and industry involvement ever since. Currently, I am a CKBD and the Communications Chair for our Eastern Carolinas Chapter of the National Kitchen and Bath Association.

When we are not working or schooling, I, my Husband and our 3 children, enjoy many sportsman activities together. Our youngest was born in July of 2019 and although he does not get to participate often, he has been a very happy spectator. Living outside of the city has really helped us raise kids who enjoy the outdoors.

I chose CQC after watching the company steadily blossom for several years. The idea of working alongside such a well-rounded group of people felt very encouraging, and when the opportunity arose, I knew it was the best choice for myself and my family. Here at CQC, we are certainly a professional team, but we are also a caring workplace family.

My love of design started at a young age. A good friend’s father was an architect, and even as a child the intentionally designed space made a big impact on me. I worked hard after college to further my knowledge of conscious design, and have over 7 years of experience in the interior design field. I’ve worked on projects from e-design to full-service interior design and home construction projects, and understand the minutia of things that can affect the perspective and outcome of a project.

I hail from Austin, Texas, with stops in Memphis, TN and Denver, CO over the years. I love spending time being active outdoors, usually with my husband and pup. You can find me searching for the elusive best taco in the triangle area.

Growing up in Eastern North Carolina and spending my early days working in a family owned hardware store, I learned the value of helping customers. I was always around people working on some sort of project and enjoyed guiding them. I decided then the construction path was something I wanted to pursue. After heading off to college for Construction Management and entering the industry during the financial crisis of 2008, I quickly pivoted to a career in sales to keep things moving.

Ten years ago, I relocated back to Raleigh to be closer to my now wife, a Raleigh native. Settling in and taking on various corporate sales roles inside different industries, I was always keeping my eye open in the construction industry. When the opportunity at CQC became available, I knew that getting back into the industry I love, combining it with my corporate sales experience, being part of a great company team, and less travel with our first daughter at home, made this career move the right one for me.

At first, moving to the hustle and bustle of Durham from the quiet serenity of the mountains of NC was a bit jarring, but CQC not only gave me a solid position in their company, but they’ve shown me how being part of an efficient and organized team can give anyone the tools to succeed in all areas of one’s life. I took on the project of remodeling my own home in my spare time and could only have done it with the support CQC has given me.

Having initially learned carpentry through a variety of odd houses and my father’s woodshop, CQC has helped me refine my eye for detail and craftsmanship while also keeping the practical methods in mind for improving a customer’s home. After finally seeing several remodels from start to finish, I can see how the change and improvement to someone’s life can be astounding with a beautifully remodeled and functional space.

To unwind from both my spare time work and the work week, I enjoy some good soulful hip-hop, my wife’s beautiful piano playing and some well-informed foraging in the surrounding Piedmont.

Just like you, I am a homeowner with a long list of repair needs and remodeling wants. My New England-born father always says, “Heathah, you don’t own the house, the house owns you” and truer words were never spoken. The endless demands of home ownership can be exhausting. I always think of my dad’s words when I’m working with a client. I consider it an honor to be welcomed into someone’s home, asked to help them solve problems. I thrive on it!

My role at CQC is to serve clients who’s remodeling needs are of a more limited scope or that have fewer moving parts. Throughout my career as a kitchen and bath designer with a Fortune 40 company, owning my own interior design business, my primary goal has always been to ensure that clients are happy.

I am a Florida native who has called Eastern North Carolina home since 2002. My family was stationed at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. I am remodeling the home that I share with my fourteen- and sixteen-year-old sons. I am also a proud mom to a twenty-year-old son. He is currently enlisted in the United States Air Force stationed in Charleston, South Carolina.

I look forward to meeting you and guiding you through your CQC Home project!

I grew up in NY. However I hate snow so I made the hardest decision to leave my parents and moved south. I ended up in Roxboro NC. I love being a short drive to the mountains & the beach!!

CQC Home’s mission really spoke to me and drew me in “To Tangibly Improve the Lives of Our Customers and Employees”. My passion is customer service. The joy that comes with improving our customer lives.

Outside of work, I share my life with Shawn, who is amazing. He also has a career with CQC. My daughter, Zoey, is my heart, my soul, my “Best thing that ever happened to me”, the source of many laughs, and here lately a few tears. We love traveling, recently went on our first cruise. Hopefully, with many many more in the future.

Working at CQC is not just a job for me, it is a lifelong career and I can not wait to help our customers with their first steps in making their dreams come true.

I strongly admire and respect the vision of CQC, the core values and history resonates deeply with me. The desire to not only develop homes with substance and meaning that enrich the lives of others, but to also build up the lives of the people around you has always been a driving factor in my own goals and pursuits of success in life.

The core of my community and a large part of my identity since childhood has been the City of Durham. As my family moved constantly into houses that were under regular renovation, I was learning the ins and outs of home remodeling and renovation from an early age. Out of this I now have a greater appreciation of the importance of not just having a house, but having a home. A place of serenity and contentment that enriches the well being of our personal lives.

Murr-Woods Custom Cutting Blocks, was a entrepreneurial side venture I embarked on, creating high quality end grain cutting blocks that would last as heirloom items. My products were primarily sold at small local businesses and through local craft shows. The meticulous detailed creation of the boards required a keen eye for exact measurement as each individual component required precise dimensions in order to result in quality finished product as a whole. Furniture making and woodworking have always been a hobby for me, out of passion and necessity. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to learn from my father who is also woodworker as well as utilize his shop space. From Sam Maloof style rocking chairs to refinishing thrift store furniture finds I typically have created woodworking projects that meet the criteria of both form and function. I am currently working on a mid-century modern styled bedroom set of my own design.

Recognizing that my favorite hobby has been dismantling the many houses I’ve lived in, and the effort of putting them back together (a hobby my husband is not so fond of). Has led me to make a career change from the software industry to remodeling and construction in 2003. I have worked with remodeling contractors in Durham and Seattle, Washington. Prior to joining CQC Home, I was the Director of Construction for Habitat for Humanity of Durham.

Being project management and operationally focused, I truly enjoy managing the renovation process and transforming homes. I strive to achieve excellence in every project I’m a part of. I am thrilled to be a part of the CQC team and back to remodeling homes again.

Originally from upstate New York, I’ve lived in Raleigh for over 20 years now. I am happy to have settled here after many moves. My husband Kristopher and I have one daughter, Kamren, two British Goldens and a large aquarium with reef fish. When I’m not remodeling something, we enjoy getting together with friends, skiing in the winter and beach trips in the summer.
