My name is Jennifer Helton. I am a graduate of the Art Institute (Illinois) with a Bachelors Degree in Interior Design. Over the years I have worked several different jobs that have each given me a new set of skills.
I have design experience working for an Interior Designer in Illinois. With this position I was in charge of a Resource Library, which entailed daily organization and up-keep. I made selections of furniture, wallpaper, fabric, tile and more per the designer’s request. I met with Reps to learn about many different products. I helped manage customer files and create project binders. This position gave me great hands on experience and taught me what it was like in the day of a designer.
I have experience with draperies and custom window treatments, for I worked at JCPenney in the drapery department. This position gave me knowledge in many areas of window coverings such as: ensuring customers had proper measurements, calculating the sizes and costs of window coverings and working directly with customers to help ensure their selections. This position gave me a great entry into the window coverings world.
I have floor-covering experience working for a Full Service Floor-covering Store. This position helped me gain knowledge in several areas. I learned all of the necessities of floor-coverings such as: pricing, installation, removal and disposal, quoting and design. I learned how to measure for kitchen backsplashes and how to calculate square footages as well as quoting the installation of the backsplash. I was able to work one on one with customers and this really helped me excel in the industry.
These different experiences I have acquired over the years have helped me succeed as an individual and allowed me to grow as a professional. Overall, I am a friendly, knowledgeable and helpful person and I look forward to working with you.
