Meet Your Team

Jennifer Bedick, CKD
Owner / Lead Designer

Jennifer is a senior designer at The Kitchen Specialist. With 15 years experience and a CKD, coupled with an eye for detail, she creates beautiful, flexible and highly functional spaces. Her main priority is providing a clear and transparent process during the design phase and following up with quality product and installation. She relies on a team of experienced craftsmen/women to assure a refined finished product and seamless installation. By closely listening to her client’spriorities and needs, not only are those refined spaces functional and aesthetically pleasing, but they are planned with home value and budget in mind. Kitchen and bath design should be exploratory and rewarding with the final product a combined effort of the homeowner and the designer. Jennifer values her clients input and looks forward to creating unique living spaces to meet their lifestyle.

Sharese Lavine
Showroom Coordinator / Design Assistant

Sharese graduated with honors from East Carolina University's accredited National Kitchen and Bath Association (NKBA) interior design program. She joined The Kitchen Specialist team in 2019 after her recent experience with kitchen cabinetry. Although she has spent most of her life in Virginia, she is able to call North Carolina home. Outside of design, she enjoys traveling while learning about different lifestyles. She is passionate about building customer relations and assisting with creating functional designs. She strives to coordinate tasteful selections that speak to each unique client. Because of her design background, Sharese is able to treat each project like a puzzle; in order to find the right pieces one must take the time to analyze the entire frame work.
