About Our Award-Winning Designers

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 Industrial Engineer for Merck and Co. as well as for Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. Along the way, she had the opportunity to totally remodel her first home, followed by designing her second home. 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. With great excitement, Jill launched her own business, Jarrett Design LLC in 2006. She earned her CKD (Certified Kitchen Designer) and CBD (Certified Bath Designer) from the NKBA in 2009 and in 2017, achieved her CMKBD (Certified Master Kitchen and Bath Designer) designation from the NKBA, the industry’s highest honor. Jill is also a Certified Aging in Place Specialist.

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 an internship and eventual position as a designer, Dana was thrilled to join Jill’s esteemed team!
