Billeigh Wintz: Designer
As a Midwest native (born and raised in Indiana) Billeigh has made her way out west, and is loving it. Prior to Reno, Billeigh lived in Dallas and Atlanta, but the Sierra Nevada Mountains has allowed her to enjoy her love for nature. With 3 years experience in healthcare design, and 1 year in contract furniture, she excels with her eye for design and attention to detail. Taking in that fresh mountain air while hiking, rock climbing, and paddle boarding allows her to reset for the next big project. Her most memorable vacation was spent in Santorini, Greece, and she continues to check off locations abroad as the years pass. Most importantly, Billeigh enjoys her time spent hanging with her husband Jason and their adorable dog Kaya.

Kim Hopkins: Registered Interior Designer, NCIDQ, LEED AP
Where function meets design is how to best describe the creativity Kim expresses in her work. Kim has been designing for 17 years, and invests time with her clients to provide them with a design intent that meets their vision. They are more than just clients to her, they are partners. By establishing their budget early on in the project, and communicating throughout the job, Kim delivers assurance to her clients that they are getting the best of the best. Outside of designing, Kim loves to spend time with her family and venture out into the woods to camp and hike. She always has home improvement projects in the back of her mind, but quite often, the kid’s sports and activities fill up her time. Another trip to Ireland would be wonderful, as spending time in this country was her most memorable vacation. In addition to the people being very friendly, exploring Killarney National Park on bikes while seeing many thatch roof cottages and huge historic estates, made for unforgettable moments.
