Meet Our Team Members

Pam

Meet our team member and owner Pam

As a child Pam loved expressing herself through her art, she developed an innate knack for deciphering the intricate dance of patterns and colors around her. Her family members often sought out her insight during shopping trips to help design their suits and formal wear. This love for design became the driving force behind her hand-made jewelry business she started as a young woman to support herself. Upon earning her degree from the University of Nebraska Kearney, she started her career in public health for the state of Nebraska. Her early professional journey led her through various sectors, providing a diverse range of experiences that has equipped her with a deep understanding of people-to-people interactions, a skill she adeptly applies in her business today. Pam’s expansive professional history has not only shaped her expertise but has also contributed significantly to her success as a seasoned designer and business owner.

Another chapter of her life began after leaving her corporate job and her successful battle with cancer. Pam redirected her career to focus on her love for design. She began working with a custom furniture company to design unique pieces for homes and commercial spaces. However, Pam desired a profession that would challenge her to learn something new every day, thus she began working as a lead designer at our showroom, formerly named Carpets of Dalton, in 2013.

In her words, “Flooring is a much bigger challenge because you have to learn about all the installation techniques, not only do you need to learn how all the designs and colors work together, but also how each tile shape will work in the space”. Pam’s joy stems from working closely with people, her role transcends transforming spaces; it’s about turning the dreams of her clients into a tangible reality. The year 2023 marks an exciting new chapter as Pam steps into the role of store owner. This exciting transition is a testament to Pam’s resilience, passion, and mastery in the world of design.

  • Outside of the showroom Pam enjoys traveling, her flower garden, going to car shows, and spending time with her family.
