Jen Sommers Transitions from Design Coordinator to Estimator

Congrats to Jen!

Our Team is like a family and we couldn’t be more excited to see one of our own advance within our company. Join us in congratulating Jen, as the latest addition to our Sales Team. Since joining the company in February 2017 as our first Design Coordinator, she's done an amazing job assisting the Design Team with pricing and ordering materials. She also organized all of our inventory, sourced out new vendors and trade partners and kept our sample library current. Jen earned a bachelor's degree in Interior Design from The Ohio State University and is an Allied member of the American Society of Interior Designers.  Originally from Cleveland, she currently lives in Dublin with her 2 daughters who desperately want mom to get a dog.

Why did you choose to join the Team at The Cleary Company?

The Cleary Company is growing by leaps and bounds. I’m excited to be a part of a company I can grow with personally and professionally, while working with a team of people full of professionalism, integrity, and compassion.

What do you like most about your job?

I love helping clients create their “happy place” in their homes by collaborating with clients, co-workers, and trade partners to find ideal solutions.  Of all places, you should feel comfortable, safe, and happy in your home.  We love working with our clients to create that place in their homes.

What room in your house is your favorite and why?

On a breezy summer or fall evening, my happy place is my back patio which is private enough to relax and enjoy a good book but open and inviting enough to enjoy good company and dinner al fresco.

When the weather isn’t cooperating, my favorite room depends on what’s happening!  The kitchen, if we’re entertaining; the living room, if we’re reading a good book; the loft, if we’re playing games and just having fun hanging out!

When you’re not working what do you love to do?

Lots of things!  I love anything from finding fun activities to do (and new places to explore) with my girls to reading books, photography, cooking, and concerts/live music.  We love to travel, so we’re always planning our next adventure!

What do you love about the Columbus Area?

There’s a myriad of things to do for all ages and interests. Columbus is constantly changing; it’s exciting to be a part of the growth and diversity coming to Columbus.

What is something you’re most proud of accomplishing?

My girls! This accomplishment is on going, always, even when they are grown.  I aspire to always show my girls how to be strong, independent women and to always choose happiness.

“Live a life that is driven more strongly by curiosity, than by fear.” – Elizabeth Gilbert

What Cleary Team event are you most looking forward to participating in?

All of the events The Cleary Company are lots of fun, from Wine & Design open house events to home tours to Team outings and so on. I’m most excited about our spring 2019 relocation. The move to our new building coupled with our 25th anniversary will be a fun celebration!                       

What do you see as the top changes that will occur in remodeling in the next 5 years?

Home automation/smart home technology has already entered the picture, but I feel over the next five years, home automation and smart home technology will increase in demand and innovation.

Our TEAM is the key to our success here at The Cleary Company Remodel Design Build in Columbus, OH. We strive to build relationships with our clients that go beyond just remodeling their homes. Check out the Meet Team Cleary page on our website for more!
