JODI SWARTZ, Founder and Principal Designer

Jodi marries her design talents with a desire to create more liveable, inspirational homes for her clients. Every project is unique because each family has its own particular nuances and needs.

She followed her creative dream and went on to work at two large design-build showrooms. At the urging of happy clients, she founded KitchenVisions in 2011. While Jodi loves creating beautiful interior spaces, her proudest accomplishments are her two daughters, Dana and Nicole, and her son-in-law, Dan, who live further away than she would prefer...
