"I have had the pleasure of working with Joey for over a year while she was the Senior Design Manager at Foreside Home & Garden. I worked closely with Joey on several custom items for some of my key accounts, which included Yankee Candle (Boney Bunch) and Cinmar/Frontgate. Joey is extremely creative and passionate, and her strength in understanding the customers needs, is instrumental in designing the right items. Joey has a passion for design and is up on all the trends. Not only did she work on custom projects for key accounts, but she was responsible for creating/designing over 1500 NEW product for our brand. Joey is someone that you would want on your team."
