Dani loves a well organized and functional space, that feels comfortable and inspiring. Calm, clean lines mixed with different materials and colors are what soothes her soul. She loves the adventure of creating these spaces and believes everyone should have the luxury of experiencing a space that lifts thier spirits and puts a smile on thier face everyday.
After high school she enrolled at Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton, WI in the Residential Interior Design program. Shortly thereafter, she enrolled in the Kitchen & Bath program. She explored internship/employment opportunities along the way, experienced amazing design-focused class trips to New York and Chicago, and learned from many skilled instructors during her time at FVTC. She worked in the Cabinets & Appliances Department at Menard’s for two years before joining the Gerhard’s team 4 years ago. Dani aims to obtain AKBD certification in the future, and looks forward to learning something new in the world of design everyday.
My Favorite Part of My Job:
Exploring the vast amount of product, design, and color options available and implementing these creatively into each unique project, is her favorite. She enjoys learning about her clients, what inspires them, and guiding them through projects.
What Set's Me Apart:
Dani’s curiosity. The cat may have struggled with it, but this is where Dani thrives. She loves learning about the materials and products Gerhard’s carries, so much so, she often has product reps dissecting and dismantling products. She has a full understanding of a material, or the functionality of a product due to that. She also loves meeting new people and hearing their unique life adventures.
Dani enjoys to be traveling outdoors whether it’s exploring and fishing (especially for those eluding Muskies!) or attending festivals and concerts, she can’t get enough. She also has a knack for cooking, organizing, and anything turquoise. (She’s been known to leave her Christmas tree up all year long because it's white with Turquoise decorations, LOVE).
