Kimberly Scott, Vice President, General Manager & Department Window Treatments Manager

My mother, brother Rick, and I decided we would start a family business back in early 1991 and moved into a small space in the Sun Pointe Shopping Center where the community warmly welcomed us. Today, we are proud of our family business, all of our employees, and the experience we're able to bring to those in the community who are in need of flooring, window treatments, and more!


Alejandro Nardin, Operations Manager

Alejandro Nardin, Operations Manager & Flooring Department Manager

I am a people’s person since I can remember. My dad had a carpet store in my home country of Bolivia in South America back in the ‘70s. I recall going with him to visit customers and learning about the concept of quality, customer service and a unique shopping experience. Today, I treat every single customer like family. I always tell my customers, I don’t sell them materials or services; I help them purchase what they want and what they need so they can enjoy it as long as possible.

I went to college in Brazil and earned a degree in Business Administration. I worked in different types of companies including agricultural, consumer goods, wholesale flooring and retail. Every job I had, helped me develop a skill set I use to communicate with clients today.

Outside of the office I am a 100% family oriented person. Among my many enjoyments, my favorite are playing tennis and mountain biking. I also enjoy traveling with my family to national state parks around the U.S and have had the privilege to travel to 24 countries throughout my life! 

Lisa Rendueles Cabinetry Department ManagerLisa Rendueles, Manager of Kitchen, Bath, & Home Office Cabinetry Department

I’ve always had a passion for decorating home interiors! My first major home improvement project was when I was seven years old; I painted and remodeled my sister’s brand new Barbie Dream House into Cat Woman’s secret lair! Now, I find kitchens and master suites are most challenging projects but are the most rewarding spaces to transform. My greatest satisfaction comes from helping clients solve problems and improve their quality of life through recreating a beautiful yet functional space.

My experience includes 34 years working within residential design, construction and remodeling, space planning, and custom cabinet design. Prior to Dove Interiors, I spent 15 years as a Design Engineer in the luxury mega-yacht industry which is where I gained much of my overall space planning experience and trade coordination. That job taught me “form follows function” and in this position, I have learned that function can always be made beautiful.

When I’m not in the office, I’m a Tool Belt Diva whose home is never the same because I love to remodel or redecorate! I also enjoy collecting succulents and gardening and I am a certified scuba diver with a passion for traveling- I haven’t made it to the Great Barrier Reef just yet!

Susan Bedell, Window Treatments Sales

Susan Bedell, Window Treatment Sales

From beginning to end, I enjoy the entire process of designing window treatments. As a child, my interest in textiles and sewing began with my mother's drapery business. From very early on, I made my own clothes and eventually majored in textile design in college. I love that moment when I first walk into a client's home - the possibilities are endless! I take personal tastes and pre-existing decor into consideration and then coordinate with different fabrics and sketch designs for clients to choose from, all while staying within the budget. Sewing is very much a passion so you will find me at home doing the same but I also enjoy gardening, hunting wild mushrooms, and just about anything with my grandchildren!

My background begins with earning my Bachelor degree in Business Management from SUNY Empire State College in New York City. I am a Certified Supply Purchasing Manager with over 10+ years of direct customer service experience receiving multiple awards for providing excellent customer service. With my degree and great fondness of working with people, it has allowed me to transition naturally into my position here at Dove Interiors, sharing my expertise on window treatments and helping clients make an informed purchase decision. My conversations with clients focuses on their needs, desires, and style preferences so I can guide them from inception to execution of their project. Services provided include free in-home measurements! I enjoy spending time with family whether it's out on the tennis court with my daughter or day trips to the beach with my husband and don't forget the occasional light-hearted 'summer' novel!

I've been in the flooring business for over 14 years. Throughout my experience, I have been a self-employed tile installer, previously owned successful flooring and interior design store, and for the last few years I have been employed as a flooring consultant and saleswoman. I love what I do here at Dove Interiors and I focus on helping clients create an inviting and comfortable atmosphere reflecting their personality and styles. I enjoy listening to my client's wants and needs when I visit their homes. Typically, customers come to me for guidance on product and color choices. This industry is constantly changing and part of my job is to stay on top of trends, not only educating the client but myself as well which keeps it exciting. I'm an outdoors person at heart and after spending 34 years in Colorado, I enjoy the year-round warmer weather camping, kayaking, fishing, and boating with my family.

Ed Patrick is a Flooring Sales Consultant at Dove Interiors Carpet OneEd Patrick, Flooring Sales Consultant

I am a people person and part of my job is to help customers select a product that fits- tying in current themes and decor to assist clients in making proper decisions in their flooring purchase. Other responsibilities include keeping the showroom in order, updating price changes, and my favorite- welcoming customers when they enter Dove Interiors. My flooring experience began in 1962 when I joined as an Armstrong Distributor. There I attended Armstrong schools to receive my flooring education. I retired in 1998 from flooring sales and in July 2016, I began working for Dove Interiors. Outside of Dove, I volunteer at my church where I'm in charge of visitors, I'm a corvette club member and enjoy attending car shows, and of course I like to read flooring industry magazines to keep up to date on products and trends.
