Darval

Owner – Contractor

Hello, I’m Katie, the owner of Beyond Kitchens. I began working here back in 2007 when I joined as the Project Coordinator and Designer. Over the years, I’ve embraced opportunities for growth and learning. So, when the chance to purchase the business arose in the fall of 2022, I knew I had to take it! I’m truly passionate about what I do and cherish the relationships I’ve built along the way.

I have a degree in Interior Design along with my contractor’s license. I believe that possessing both provides me with a unique blend of skills and knowledge. Your home should be where you escape to, a place that brings you joy and puts a smile on your face. I love that we get to play a part in creating that for our clients.

I am in the era of being the chauffeur to my two kids in all their various activities! While it can be exhausting at times, I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I love escaping in a good book, surrounding myself with friends and family, a good crime podcast, and gardening.

Klevan

CKBD – Lead Designer

As a Certified Kitchen and Bath Designer (CKBD) through the National Kitchen and Bath Association, my goal is to guide clients through the design process in a way that will put them at ease in knowing I will take care of all the nitty-gritty details and their project will be everything they’ve dreamt of. In my eyes, a successful design is one that effortlessly functions and is a reflection of you.

I am a go getter with a constant drive to improve and implement new processes and organization. Since beginning my career in 2015 after receiving my degree in Interior Design, I’ve been lucky enough to bring home countless awards, be published in Regional and National Magazines, and be a part of NKBA’s Thirty Under 30 Class of 2018.

My two young kiddos keep my husband and I busy and smiling. I am a lover of outdoor activities and spending every moment I can with family. My hobby is anything that involves design, whether that be for my own home or work – I guess you could say I love what I do!

Jade

Boser

Project Coordinator & Designer

My name is Jade. I am a dedicated and passionate Interior Designer always eager to transform dated and nonfunctional spaces into the unimaginable. I love a good challenge and in the interior design industry, we don’t lack there!

I graduated from Alexandria Technical College with an associate degree in interior design. My role as the Project Coordinator & Designer involves scheduling subcontractors, keeping projects organized, drafting, and designing as time allows. I am always looking to grow my knowledge, and in doing that I have studied to earn the NKBA Remodeling Specialist Badge and Sales and Marketing Badge and I don’t intend on stopping there!

When I am not at the studio, you can find me at the gym, escaping into a new personal development book, spending time with family, or turning an old piece of furniture into its true potential.

Seward

Studio Assistant

I found a home at Beyond Kitchens after deciding to make a career change and pursue an interest in design. I graduated from Harvard with a degree in Psychology and spent 8 years in the corporate world in Boston, most recently in Merchandising and Supply Chain Operation at Wayfair. I’m excited to learn more about the remodeling/construction industry and got a jumpstart by obtaining my Cabinetry Specialist badge through the NKBA in 2023.

As the Studio Assistant, I enjoy applying my team-first attitude and collaborative spirit to help the Beyond Kitchens team stay organized and shepherd projects to completion. I love thinking of ways to infuse your unique style into a design that is optimized for your lifestyle.

Outside of the studio, you can find me coaching youth sports, participating in group fitness, and spending time with family.

We’re excited about the possibility of working with you!
