Thimmappa has received a doctoral degree from the University of California at Berkeley, served as faculty in the Department of Forest Sciences at Oregon State University, and more recently in the Department of Neurology at the Oregon Health and Science University. He brings nearly three decades of scientific research background to fulfill emotional needs of ShelfGenie clients in the organizing and pull-out shelving industry. Helping people and solving their problems is as exciting as conducting scientific studies on Coastal Redwood and Douglas-fir trees, and evaluating herbal remedies for Alzheimer’s disease and Cancer-Associated Retinopathy. Current day remodeling projects generally add beauty to the space, whereas ShelfGenie provides much needed “functionality” with beautiful solutions.
Nancy grew up in Minnesota and has a degree in Recreation and Outdoor Education. While working in Dallas TX she stumbled upon a Kitchen Design job and realized she had a passion and knack for designing and working with customers on all of their remodeling needs. Her attention to detail and organizational skills makes her excellent in transforming your kitchen or bath, and her practical sense will recommend you have the most efficient usable space possible using ShelfGenie in your home. Nancy now lives in Vancouver and anytime she gets a free moment you can usually find her out hiking or kayaking somewhere.
I’m Cydney, and I love to make things beautiful. Our homes should be our happy places, and so much of that depends on having a place for everything and having everything in its place. Sometimes all we need is a fresh perspective on our space to realize its true potential, and that’s where I come in. I have a background in Home Organization and Design, and I live in a tiny bungalow here in Portland that was built in 1914, so I know a thing or two about utilizing every inch of space. My family and I strive to live a clutter-free life and it brings me joy to help others do the same.
