Kathy Fennema has over 18 years in the decorative plumbing and hardware industry. Her knowledge and expertise is well earned but what her clients appreciate is her design sense. She is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) at Cal State Northridge. Kathy will typically begin her client sessions with curious conversation quizzing them on their vision for their new home. To her it’s more than elevations and floor plans. It’s gaining a sense of what people really want to fulfill the dreams they may have been carrying around in their heads, perhaps for many years. Only then can she begin to present them with specific products and merchandise to begin to puzzle it all together. Kathy’s first goal is to have well informed clients. What follows from there are happy and satisfied new home owners. Kathy is co-owner and vice-president of Santa Fe by Design.
