Cabinetry, Flooring, Kitchen + Bath Remodel

The women of ACo are truly a formidable force. In an often-male dominated industry, these ladies are key players in ACo’s success. Who are they, what do they do, and how do they help people love where they live?

Linley Mosier and Amanda Wagoner, both CAD designers, transform ideas and hand-drawn sketches into computer-drafted floor plans, elevations, and renderings.

“I enjoy ensuring that my designs and quotes are precise, accurate and professional,” says Mosier.

Adds Wagoner, “I love that each project is unique. I never draw up the same design twice.”

Maddie Lynch, Pre-Construction Coordinator, appreciates being on the production side of it all.

“It’s amazing to see the [kitchen, bathroom, or laundry room] project go from bare studs in a wall to something beautiful!” says Lynch, who is proud to be working beside such an amazing team of women.

“I’m the younger one of the bunch, and they all make me feel included and welcome. I’m glad our girl-power team continues to grow.”

Melissa Browning, Bookkeeper and Office Manager, handles anything that has to do with numbers. She is the glue that holds the company together.

Design & Sales Consultant Autumn Janowski enjoys the creative process of determining how to make a space both functional and beautiful.

“Sharing in the excitement and anticipation with our clients is the best!” says Janowski.

Kayley Vargo works with both industry professionals and homeowners to provide cabinetry and flooring for full-service remodels.

“There’s something so satisfying about understanding the wants and needs of each individual project, working through the details, and seeing it come to life,” says Vargo, Sales & Design consultant. “I especially love when I get to be creative and think outside the box.”

Carlie Suski, Design & Sales consultant, is also known as the “Cabinet Queen.”

“My main role is to design and sell,” she says. “I meet with clients, gain an understanding of what is and isn’t working for them in their space, and make design suggestions.”

Jeanne Holmes, CAD Designer, says that one of her fondest memories at ACo involves having the final photos of a bathroom Suski designed match her drawings to a T.

“It was hard to distinguish between the drawings and the photo because the CAD image was so real to life!” says Holmes, who maintains that ACo is one of the best places she’s ever worked because while everyone does exceptional work, there are no egos.

“We all strive to help one another meet goals,” she says.

Delphine Jonquet, Estimator, is responsible for the “how” and “how much” of each project.

“When we go through a scope review with the homeowner and project manager and everyone feels great about the plan of attack, that makes me smile,” says Jonquet.

Mia Farrell says only one thing beats the enthusiasm she sees when clients look at 3D renderings and material samples.

“The excitement at the end of a project when a client is enjoying their new space is second-to-none,” says Farrell, Design & Sales consultant.

Farrell, who loves a space planning challenge, once tackled a rework of a second floor to add a primary suite with a walk-in closet and bathroom.

“It was a game changer for the homeowner because it made it so they had two full bathrooms instead of one that the whole family was sharing,” says Farrell. “We also moved the laundry room from the basement to the second floor. It was practically a new house by the time we were done with it.”

Olivia Rogers, new to the ACo team, is pleased to be immersed in such a supportive atmosphere.

“We have a weekly company meeting where everyone gives shoutouts to people who have gone above and beyond the previous week,” says Rogers, Marketing Specialist. “It’s extremely encouraging how everyone goes out of their way to help people in other departments.”
