I have been in the stone industry since 2008. Prior to joining the HRSW team I worked in the gaming industry for 16 years. What really sparked my interest to switch career paths is just the product itself, specifically natural stone. It is extremely interesting how it is formed. I have been at HRSW for all of these years because of the camaraderie. We really work as a team to make every project as beautiful and functional as possible. In my free time I enjoy hanging by the pool with my wife, playing with my dogs and watching NASCAR with my son.
My career started here at HRSW fresh out of high school answering phones. I was going to college for design and I knew quickly I was already at the place I wanted to be. In my 8 years here I've pushed myself to learn everything possible about the stone business and I pride myself with that knowledge. What I love about HRSW is its relentless efforts to be the best in the business. Not a day goes by that we aren't working tirelessly to improve our machinery, process, and customer service. It sounds cheesy, but being at work all the time is honestly my guilty pleasure. When I'm not at work on Sundays you can find me exploring the best places in Metro Detroit to enjoy an amazing brunch!
I have been in the home improvement industry for 27 years, I have covered pretty much everything short of tearing a home down and rebuilding it. I have been with HRSW for the past 8 years. I have watched and participated in the amazing growth our company has experienced during that period of time, helping thousands of customers dreams come true. When I am not at work helping customers, I enjoy golfing. I have won the club championship in my league 3 out of the last 4 years. I also like attending meetings and events as a member of the Sunrise Networking Group. Please come in and let me help you find the perfect color or material to fit your project. Peace.
I have been in the stone industry for 19 years, in both importing and fabrication. My years of experience in the stone world have made me extremely knowledgeable about the variety of materials to chose from. I genuinely like the people I work with and enjoy helping the customers make selections that will look beautiful in their home. In my free time outside of HRSW, I like taking morning walks and going fishing. Stop by and visit me at our showroom and I'll be happy to help you select something for any project!
Before coming to HRSW I was in the restaurant business for 24 years. My love of people and helping them pointed me into the direction of home improvement. I have been in this general industry for about 4 years. I recently, over the past couple of years, honed in on stone specifically. I enjoy working at HRSW because of the family atmosphere and enormous amounts of materials we consistently stock and have to offer. In my free time I like to head up north to my place on the lake and relax. I also pride myself on being an automobile enthusiast. Come swing by the showroom and I’ll be happy to help you select the perfect material for you!
I have been in the stone industry for close to 10 years. I have always had an interest in interior design and love to create and see visions of designs come together. That coupled with my extensive stone knowledge has allowed me to assist many clients in transforming their homes. Having been raised in a family business, I have learned first hand what customer service means and I am proud that I am able to give that to my clients. I love working at HRSW because they understand the value of providing our clients with the best workmanship in the industry and the highest level of customer service. In my spare time, I love spending time with my husband and two kids. I also enjoy sitting on the beach and reading a good book!
I have been in the sales & service industry for 22 years. Previous to the stone industry I owned and operated a refinishing and restoration company. The best part about working for HRSW is being a part of something greater...being able to offer our customers great service with endless product options. Having worked for another fabricator in the past, I can honestly say that HRSW is truly a cut above the rest. I am very happy to be a part of this impressive operation and to work around other awesome people. In my spare time, I enjoy going to sporting events, golfing, and spending time with my family. Recently, I've been into small DIY woodworking projects. I have a great eye for color and design! I look forward to crafting our service to fit each customer's needs.
I started working at HRSW in 2016 after retiring from the sheriff's department. My passion for helping people transitioned from one industry to the next. I love being able to help people transform their kitchen or bathroom into a piece of art through the beauty of stone countertops. What I love the most about HRSW is that there are so many options everyone's price range. We also have full slabs to view which is a game changer. In my free time I enjoy hunting, traveling and spending time with my friends and family.
I started out in the stone industry straight out of high school when I was 18 years old. I have experience in numerous departments such as receptionist, scheduling, and sales. I am currently going to Oakland University to obtain my bachelor’s degree in finance, but want to stay in this industry for as long as possible because I truly enjoy working in it. I love working at HRSW mainly because of our amazing staff. Everyone is extremely friendly, helpful, and welcomed me with open arms when I started. Some of my hobbies outside of work and school would include cooking, catching up with friends and family as much as possible. When I get some free time to myself, I love to catch up on new shows on Netflix.
I am proud to say that I've been in the remodeling industry for 17+ years. I have complete remodeling experience, problem resolution skills and creative ways to get the job done. What I enjoy the most about my job is taking the customer's dream and making it happen! The best part about HRSW is our customer service. We're fast-paced and we have a "great at what we do" attitude. You don't just get me, you get the whole team here. We all work efficiently and effectively with installers and project managers...constant communication is a must. A quality product is what you get when you sign up with the Hard Rock family! When I'm not busy at work, you can find me out golfing or boating with my friends and family!
I am honored to be a new member of the HRSW family! In addition to my 7-year career in the kitchen and bath design industry, I have also earned a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. I didn’t just choose this career path on a whim, it has been a life long passion of mine that grows more every day. I can walk into space and after talking with the client, I can immediately visualize what that space is going to look like after a remodel. At first, I thought everyone could do this but I have realized that it’s a beautiful gift that I get to share with my wonderful clients! Aside from work I love going on adventures with my four kiddos anywhere and everywhere in Metro Detroit. I adore Michigan history via books, museums, and tours. I am in heaven when I am outdoors especially by the water! My “chill” time involves yard work!
15+ years in the construction/remodeling industry has taught me a lot. Any problem can be solved with the right attitude and solid teamwork. That is what I like about working here at HRSW. Every team member knows their role and plays their part to ensure that all of the customers are taken care of with the highest possible level of service. Customer satisfaction and earning referral business keeps me happy in my day to day job duties. When I am not creating functional cabinet solutions, I enjoy spending time with my family and golfing. Go Blue!
I have been in the construction industry for over 30 years. I am a licensed builder and finish carpenter by trade. I have been in contractor sales in the granite industry for the last 10 years and enjoy it immensely. I came to HRSW about 2 years ago because I heard they were the biggest and best in Michigan. I have absolutely no regrets and am proud to be a part of the team. We have the best showroom and state of the art equipment. I love the dedication and commitment from everyone here! When I am not working you can find me golfing, or gardening. I am very rich with my 2 cents and am always willing to share my wealth!
Most of my career in stone has been dedicated here to HRSW. I've been in the industry for 10 years and counting. I really enjoy walking through the warehouse to see the natural stone we stock here. Each week brings new beauty to our lives! These slabs truly turn our customers countertops into a work of art. I really like the dynamic here at HRSW. Every department works with each other to produce a premium product. Being a part of the growth and direction this company is going has been truly amazing. When I'm not at work, I love spending time with my daughter and family, running races, and socializing with my friends!
I have been in the granite industry for over 10 years. I've worn many hats... receptionist, accounting, scheduling, project management, you name it! My current role has evolved into sales because I really enjoy meeting people and helping then with their new or remodeling projects. I love working for HRSW because everyone here is willing to go the extra mile to help our customers. We all want the customers to have the best experience. Plus it's like one big happy family! In my free time I love spending time with my grand babies, going to the movies, and traveling to Florida to visit my family. Oh, and don't forget going to BINGO!
My journey in the stone industry started back in 2001, working in both the wholesale world selling just slabs and the fabricator world selling the finished product. I've been with HRSW specifically since 2014 and there is no place I'd rather be! Working on the production side of things can be challenging, but it keeps us on our toes which can also be the fun part about it. At HRSW I've worked in both the retail and national accounts division which has allowed me to be a part of so many different projects. I love when a customer is happy with the end result and we were able to make that vision come true. We all work so well together. I genuinely like the people I work with here. In my free time I enjoy reading; I'm an avid book reader. I also love to travel and usually book a trip to the Caribbean once a year!
I haven't actually been in the stone industry for too long yet. However, just through this short amount of time I have learned so much in the office and traveling on the road as a rep. The best part of my job is being not only in the office, but on the road building relationships. I also like that my day consists of different things and isn't repetitive. I enjoy working for HRSW because everyone here is extremely hard working. Each person carries such a positive attitude, regardless of challenges we may face. My free time differs from season to season. In the summer you can catch me camping, long boarding or kayaking. In the winter I'm snowmobiling, ice skating or hitting the slopes to snowboard!
My career in the stone industry started out here at HRSW in 2014. There is something very gratifying about helping people that have an idea of how they want to see their kitchen, or any project, turn into a reality. Being part of the process to see it come to fruition is so rewarding. This industry is a small community of people that live similar lives, and we are all more than happy to help each other. Whether it is in fabricating practices or dealing with the technology changes we are all here for one another! What I love most about HRSW is that it is a grass roots kind of company. It started with two, family focused, friends that grew through hard work and determination. That determination was and still is to exceed the customers experience. The owners continue to make changes to the community through their philanthropy efforts. In my free time I love to volunteer. I also love to spend time with my family and friends. Time is precious!
I started working with stone in 1998. The evolution of new ways to use stone is one of the things that maintains my interest. The different applications and the unique projects that we are able to achieve with the advancements in materials and technology is remarkable. What I like the most about HRSW is that we are not afraid to challenge the limits of our capabilities and adapt to the ever changing world we live in. In my free time I enjoy participating in sports, hitting the gym, and watching movies.
HRSW is home for me. I have been here since before the beginning. Growing up, I was educated as a production-oriented person, which has led me to help build much of what is around me. The tile & stone industry has been my home since 2001. I have been blessed to have my mark on every aspect of this trade; from sales to installation. Back in the day, with 3 degrees, I imagined myself in other industries. But when I was introduced to the beauty of natural stone I fell in love. When I'm not working, I find myself playing hockey & golf, as well as hunting & fishing. Many HRSW personnel have dared to taste-test my recipes...all so far have lived!
I've been involved with commercial construction for 20 years and have been with HRSW for just over 3. This field is challenging, yet exciting and I've been a part of some very large commercial projects all over the country. With my position, I get to meet a diverse amount of people on any given day from architects to superintendents. Giving these people outstanding service is always my goal, as is the rest of the team here at HRSW. Providing, fabricating, and installing stone materials is a form of art. I truly believe we have the best artists around. In my free time, I enjoy photography and working on my classic car.
I have been in the construction industry for 17+ years. I have been a part of the HRSW family for about 6 years and counting. What I love the most about working at HRSW is the way everyone is willing to help each other get the job done. Before moving over to commercial sales, I worked in our in-house template department. I enjoyed doing that, but I've found that I enjoy the challenge of commercial estimating more. Plus, I love that I now get to work for more hands-on with our customers. When I'm not at work you can find me out on the fairway golfing or out on the ice playing hockey!
I have been in the granite industry for over 3 years now. What brought me into the stone industry was the beauty of the natural stone. Every slab has its own unique character to it. I chose to work at HRSW because they are the best around. They have a great showroom with a vast collection of materials to chose from. HRSW also offers the top 3 things in the business that are hard to find; quality, speed, and affordability. When I'm not working you can find me out in the woods with mother nature or in an ice rink!
I am fairly new to the stone industry specifically. Prior to joining the HRSW team, I was a manufacturing engineer in the auto industry. After the plant was shut down, I decided to pursue an opportunity that was presented to me in the stone industry. What drew me to HRSW is the dedication all of my coworkers share. I am proud to be a part of a team that goes above and beyond to provide our customers with the highest quality of work in the industry. Being a US Navy veteran, dedication and comradery are strong qualities that are very important to me. A couple of fun facts about me are that I am a collector of WWII memorabilia, I love to cook, and try new cuisines!
