Kendall Callaghan, Design Operations Lead
As Design Operations Lead, Kendall spends most of her days behind the scenes coordinating the thousands of small details that go into each project. Kendall is instrumental in our initial design phase for her expertise with 3D rendering. These artistic creations allow the client to visualize the outcome of our proposed design in a life-like manner. Moving a project closer to its breath-taking finish by placing and expediting orders is what give her so much joy.
With a Masters Degree in Theatre, a former life as a performance artist, her travels to 19 countries and counting and her previous work experience as a scheduler and project manager Kendall is uniquely well-versed in many aspects of our design world. She and her husband love live theatre, weekend getaways, and occasional nature hikes for added inspiration. At Beth Krupa Interiors she enjoys keeping clients updated with project progress, creating mood boards and renderings, as well as helping with on-the-ground design decisions. She truly has the best job!
