Julie HummonKONST Design Associate
"Jonas offered me an amazing opportunity when he gave me my first kitchen project. It really focused me in my career."
Julie Hummon joined the CARNEMARK team as a design intern, while completing her studies in architecture and construction technology at Montgomery College. A quick and inquisitive learner, Julie soon knew her way around the design department-from project manuals to specification sheets to 3D renderings. Within six months, she had joined the CARNEMARK team as a full-time design associate.
These days, Julie focuses largely on kitchen design, having mastered the finer points of SieMatic cabinetry. Working side-by-side with company owner and lead designer Jonas Carnemark, she translates schematic design ideas into working plans and detailed renderings. Her expertise also extends into the field, where she manages client projects from cabinet delivery through installation.
Never afraid to ask questions, Julie pushes each project to the best possible design solution. She especially enjoys the early planning stage because she can help bring clients' ideas to life on paper. But ultimate satisfaction, she says, comes about a week after install when clients call to tell her how much they love their kitchen and that they wouldn't change a single detail.
Julie recently had the chance to show off her kitchen design skills to her husband, after the couple bought their first home in Silver Spring, Maryland. Good thinking: She'll soon be cooking for three.
