Pam Nesbitt

Pam Nesbitt

Senior Designer

A small-town girl, Pam has been in Madison and the design industry for 22 years. Much to her dismay, she’s the office choice for drawing hood details and molding details because of her attention to detail and experience in the field. Pam has added several NKBA awards to her resume since joining us and is the in-house guru for new construction projects. When she’s not playing pickleball with friends, you can find her at the dog park with her dog Floyd, or coming up with new recipes.


Erica Weaver

Senior Designer

A Michigander at heart, Erica is in Madison by way of Detroit. She was a Geographer in another life before she went back to design school and refuses to cheer for any team other than her beloved Michigan State Spartans. Erica likes to remind everyone in the office that our job is FUN. She loves yoga, live music and makes a point to hike during all her travels with her dog Gus. Space planning and bold finish selections are her favorite parts of being a Kitchen & Bath Designer.
