Creates Designs and Space Plans for Kitchens

Ashley Vallin is a design consultant for Granite & Cabinet Depot in Ontario, California. She’s responsible for kitchen design and space planning. “People come in looking for granite and kitchen designs. I help them to identify what their intentions are,” she says. Ashley also provides a cost estimate for clients.

She’s excited to be the second person in her family to graduate with a college degree. And she’s inspired by her Mexican culture, exposed wood, landscapes, and other natural materials.  “[I enjoy] the fact that I can change someone’s environment with space planning. It really makes a big difference.”

Ashley, who in 2016 earned a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire, says that her education prepared her to look at spaces with fresh eyes. She advises current students to research interior design to be certain they want to pursue the profession. “Remember—interior design is not interior decorating,” she cautions.
