Meet the GLDESIGN Team
Interior Designer & Project Manager
A Connecticut coast native and former college athlete, Mackenzie’s love of all things coastal was instilled in her youth, with weekends and vacations at the beach with her family. Her pre-design background in corporate finance makes her an asset at keeping projects on track and on time as well as stunningly beautiful. When not designing clients’ dream spaces, you can find her coaching high school soccer or taking long walks with her pup Miller.
Office Design Manager
Like the orb that inspires her design aesthetic, Christin is GLDESIGN’s resident sunshine. Whether working behind the scenes to keep the team humming or crushing it on install day, Christin brings that little something extra to every project. You may also see her at sunrise clearing her head with a long early morning run.
design operations manager & e-design
CT native Stephanie’s love of design was inspired by her builder-father and family weekends at the beach. Her operational expertise was honed while working in the corporate world. Together, those two aspects come together as Stephanie keeps each project on track at GLDESIGN. When not handling all things operational, you might find her on a long bike ride with her husband or completing projects at home.
