Teresa K. Vernon, Design and Sales Manager

I love getting to know my clients, understanding their lifestyles and priorities, and then designing a creative, functional space for them.I've been a design consultant with California Closets for nearly a year. Previously I owned a closet company in Columbia, Missouri. When I returned to live in Arizona I knew that California Closets was a company I would love to work for because of the quality and reputation.

Cathy Abbott-Williams, Senior Design Consultant

I have been a designer with California Closets for 11 years. I have satisfied the needs of clients from large custom homes to the new parents planning a closet for their baby’s arrival.My job first and foremost is to make a closet function well. I spend a lot of time with clients understanding the inventory that needs to go in a closet and how they want to utilize the area. Then, I design elements that are aesthetically beautiful, while still keeping the client’s budget in mind.

They add a contemporary option to our product mix.
