Jill Jarrett, CMKBD, CAPS

Jill Jarrett, CMKBD, CAPS Owner / Designer

Jill graduated from The Pennsylvania State University with a B.S. in Industrial Engineering. She worked as an engineer for Merck and Co. as well as for Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. While working as an engineer and raising her family, she remodeled her first home, designed her second home, and freelanced as a designer. In August of 2004, Jill decided to pursue her passion for design by taking classes with The National Kitchen and Bath Association. She worked for a local kitchen dealer from 2004 – 2006. There she learned about every aspect of the kitchen and bath industry and gained much experience interfacing with clients, contractors, and vendors. In 2006, with great excitement, Jill launched her own business, Jarrett Design LLC. In 2009, she earned her CKD (Certified Kitchen Designer) and CBD (Certified Bath Designer) from the NKBA. Jarrett Design studio, 312 Main Street in Emmaus, PA opened in 2013. In 2017, Jill achieved her CMKBD (Certified Master Kitchen and Bath Designer) designation from the NKBA, earned only by the industry’s most knowledgeable and accomplished designers. Jill is also a Certified Aging in Place Specialist. She is committed to ensuring every client receives outstanding service, from concept to installation. Her internationally recognized firm has earned numerous awards on national and regional levels for outstanding design. The company’s commitment to client centered design has garnered recognition from industry partners, including six years of customer service awards from Houzz. Jill is the founder of Hearts for Haiti, a public charity that raises funds for the most immediate needs of babies and children living in impoverished areas of Haiti.

Dana Bacher

Dana Bacher Designer

Dana graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz and moved east to work in book publishing and sales and marketing. Several years later, Dana took time off to raise her daughter, affording her the opportunity to take classes in Lehigh Carbon Community College’s nationally accredited kitchen and bath design program and pursue her dream career in design. At LCCC, she studied space planning, color theory, computer drafting, art history, and interior and kitchen and bath design. She also completed LCCC’s studio class, in which students design and install a kitchen and bathroom. Dana remodeled her own master bathroom, closet, and laundry room, and when Jarrett Design, who worked with her on the remodel, offered her a position, Dana was thrilled to join Jill’s esteemed team! Now a senior designer, Dana enjoys collaborating with clients on their projects. One of her recent collaborations was featured in Lehigh Valley Style Magazine and appeared as a “Featured Kitchen of the Week” on Houzz. Dana volunteers her time supporting local educational efforts that lift up kids and community, including her work on behalf of the Freddy Awards. Dana enjoys reading and has been a member of the same bookclub for more than twenty years. She grew up frequenting museums with her artist father. These visits fostered a lifelong passion for art and design and she considers herself fortunate to have these interests be a vital part of her daily work life.
