Stan Writesel

Cat Hickmon

Fabrication Specialist

Cat has been with B2End since (almost!) the very beginning! Having owned her own fabrication business for over 20 years, B2End is so grateful to have her expertise in the showroom. In addition to being a skilled veteran in all things fabric, Cat is also extremely artistic and brings a well-trained eye to her work. Her favorite part about working at B2End is: “I still have fun making and designing things, without all the intricacies of owning my own business!”

Michele Kissen

Upholstery Expert

Michele brings over a decade of experience in upholstery to her work at B2End. A friend of Michele’s owned an upholstery business, and trained her in the art of upholstery. Michele immediately fell in love with the work, and learned all she could about the craft. She is especially talented at repurposing vintage furniture. Four years ago, Michele joined the B2End team, and she has never looked back! Her favorite part about working at B2End is: “Everyone gets along extremely well and we work so well as a team!”

Gina Nowicki

Administrative Design Assistant

With a primarily artistic background, Gina has always loved and appreciated interior design. When she joined our team last year, she quickly grew to be a part of all areas of our business, from office management to assisting with design and fabrication.

Pam Darbyshire

Certified Decorator and Blinds Specialist

Pam began her career in interior decorating in the early nineties, and is an established part of the Sarasota design industry. In addition to being a certified decorator, she is also a certified color consultant and home stager. “B2end is a great place to work, with a very close-knit and skilled crew who really excel at creating outstanding designs and interiors,” said Pam, “and it is so great to see so many happy clients!”
