Michelle Grady

I love the challenge of re-imagining spaces to better suit my client's needs, helping them with their design / remodel process from Zero (deer in the headlights) to 100%. My goal is to create stunning and functional designs for the lifestyles of my clients. I also collaborate with architects and builders in helping their clients. Strengths I bring to the design process are keen space planning skills and knowledge of trends and exceptional listening skills.

I provide detailed drawings/renderings, workflow and cabinet organization, and innovative design concepts that transform living spaces.

I have 30+ years of experience in interior design and project management in the North San Francisco Bay Area and Wine Country Whatever your project, feel free to contact me to help you get started. Graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree, Housing and Interiors, USU. Accredited Professional Kitchen Designer, NKBA since 1996

Catherine VanBuskirk

Catherine has been an interior design professional for most of her adult life. Her career has taken her from Maui, Hawaii, back to her native San Francisco Bay Area to Sonoma County, currently with NBKB since 2015. Her role as a Designer is finding the most accommodating features to complete large new building and remodeling projects for our clients. Getting to know her clients over time and seeing them enjoy the promise of their new abode never fails to be her greatest reward. When she is not at work, you may find her with her husband, at the local pool and spa, riding bikes around town, enjoying the local restaurants or discovering a gorgeous hidden collectible somewhere downtown, Petaluma, where they call home.

Kari Snyder

Kari has been with Northbay Kitchen and Bath since 2018.  She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Apparel Marketing and Textile Design.  In 2012, she received her Professional Certificate in residential Interior Design.  She takes pride in developing strong relationships with her clients as she works closely with them to curate designs that reflect their individuality and aesthetic.  When not working, Kari is a devoted and very busy mom to two children under 12.  In her occasional free time, you can find her attending concerts of her favorite bands which most always restore her soul.  

Dawn Koetz

Dawn believes that a home is a true reflection of its inhabitants, a sanctuary for the owners and an opportunity to find authenticity in the unexpected and warmth in the imperfect. The result is a design that feels purposeful yet uncontrived, raw yet polished, and structured yet whimsical. when not working at Northbay she is combing through antique stores, flea markets, and salvage yards to create a curated space for her friends and family to enjoy.

Jennifer DeVost

Jennifer’s 15 years of experience in the financial services industry helped solidify her remarkable customer service attitude, excellent communication skills, and project management background.  Her passion for creativity and interest in interior decorating led her to pursue her certification in Interior Design.  Jennifer keeps busy with activities her whole family enjoys; bike riding and camping in the warm summer months, and skiing during the winter.  She thoroughly enjoys entertaining, and it thrills her to set the ambiance for each dinner party, birthday or holiday. She always believes that design is more than just making a space beautiful.  It’s about creating a space that makes you feel at ease and inspires you to be the best version of yourself.  She believes the design of your home should be a reflection of who you are.  Every home should be functional, flexible, and have a thoughtful balance of investment pieces and budget-friendly finds. 

Marina Laczkowski

After many years of experience in customer service, event, and floral design, Marina transitioned her skills into the interior design world, working for a remodeling company in Maryland. Having recently returned to her native Sonoma County, she is excited to work with clients on their various home projects to bring their unique and personal visions to life. After 4 years away Marina is looking forward to wine tasting with friends and heading to Oracle Park to cheer on the San Francisco Giants once again.
