Katie Black, Design Consultant


Phoenix Metro Area

I moved from Toronto in 2005 and earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Interior Design in 2010 from Northern Arizona University. I have always been obsessed with design, organization, and space planning ever since I was young, and it is great to be able to apply this education and skills to my designs every day.

 I believe that knowing the personality and lifestyle of every individual client is key to designing a space for them that will function, as well as something that they can evolve and grow into for years to come. It’s rewarding to help make someone’s life a little less hectic, and it’s always a fun process for me. I love meeting new people! You learn something new from each client, and it helps you grow as a person and become better at your position.

 My previous work history has primarily been in retail environments, between clothing, home and furniture stores. This gave me a good background in customer service, space planning, and the needs of consumers. I joined the California Closets team in 2009 as an Administrative Assistant, then moving more recently onto job tasks such as website and iPad app administrator, unofficial photographer, running social media pages, managing our Scottsdale Showroom, and Design Consultant.
