Meet our Team

At Design Therapy, we are very proud of our staff. We have built a team that is focused on building relationship with our customers. Each of us have a natural love for helping people as well as home decor. We have worked hard to build a unique company culture where all of our team feel like they have ownership over our business. With all of us working together to choose products, research trends and decorate our store, Design Therapy is ever changing and evolving to reflect our diverse perspectives and tastes.

Jenny loves being the co-owner of Design Therapy. Her long history of working in customer service, background in marketing and love for her community make this the perfect fit for her. She believes that building good relationships is the key to a successful business and works hard with her team to help find the perfect pieces for their customers. Jenny is also very proud of her community involvement including Boards such as The Today N Tomorrow Learning Society and Downtown Courtenay Business Improvement Association.

Most of our customers know Todd as the smiling delivery guy. Although as a co-owner of Design Therapy, he spends most of his time in the back ground and doing deliveries & set up for our customers, during his spare time he is an avid golfer and mountain biker. He has competed in the BC Bike Race and currently serves on the Board of Directors for UROC (United Riders of Cumberland).

After working in fashion for over 20 years, Leah is passionate about colour, patterns and design aesthetics. So the move to home decor when she joined our team in 2015 felt like a natural progression to her. She specializes in building excellent relationships and trust with her clients. She loves seeing the results when she helps them furnish & accessorize their house, transforming it into a home that makes them love where they live. If you need a little extra help, Leah invites you to ask her about her complimentary home consultation service.

Being part of a military family, Stephanie understands the excitement of moving and the impact of decorating your space so it feels like home.  It’s her goal to help make transitions easier for the many newcomers of the Valley.  Having a Fine Arts degree helps her use colour, design and composition to create harmony in her clients’ homes.

Sabrina is our newest and youngest addition to our Design Therapy family. She says she has always had a desire for creating beautiful spaces. Recently she decided to pursue that desire and joined our team. She loves that her new job allows her to continuously learn about design and trending styles. She enjoys getting to know everyone’s personalities and helping them find the furniture that makes their home perfect.

Since joining our team in 2007, Kim has worked in many areas of the store. From the front line; getting to know our customers, to the back room; unpacking the new treasures for our store. She especially loves linens and have a vast collection of her own. Kim says the thing she loves most about her job is that each day at Design Therapy is unique and entertaining. “I enjoy the light and fun atmosphere with my workmates”.

Michelle moved to Vancouver Island from Calgary in 2015 after working many years in the oil patch, and she is hooked!! She started working for Design Therapy shortly after, and quickly became an important part of our team. After a short hiatus away, she has come back to join Design Therapy. Her excellent organization skills and love for customer service make her the perfect addition to our team. She has two great adult boys back in Alberta, whom she tries to visit often. When she is not organizing our special orders or pricing new inventory, you will find Michelle in the woods running or on the water paddling. She is also active in the community with volunteering for various groups.

Kimberly has been with our team since early 2017. Combining her degree in Interior Design and her amazing organizational skills, she has found her niche in many parts of our operations. She specializes in colour and has a painting & consultation company in her spare time.
