A Little More About the AIM

Theresa, Design Assistant

From a young age, I’ve been passionate about residential design, inspired by what a home can represent and how it makes us feel. My journey in Interior Design and Architecture began with a degree from Iowa State University, marking just the start of my expertise. My mother often told me, “Do what you love for work because, honey, life’s short and workdays can be long.” That advice led me to AIM for the best.

When it comes to design and assisting clients, I’m deeply passionate about space planning, creating the perfect color scheme, and, most of all, using visual aids. Architectural drafting is incredibly rewarding, as it allows me to help clients visualize something that doesn’t yet exist. In this way, I feel like a superhero, bringing their dreams to life.

Melissa, Designer

I grew up in a small town in Iowa, spending my childhood drawing house plans, rearranging the house with my mom, and taking pictures with my 110 camera. My love for creating beautiful images and spaces has been a lifelong passion. After graduating from John Brown University, I began my career as a video editor, writer, and producer, creating music videos, commercials, and promotional content. However, my true passion lies in home spaces. Nine years ago, I transitioned into design and found immense reward in seeing plans come to life for our AIM clients and witnessing their excitement when everything comes together.

I have a wonderful family: my husband, Chris, and our two kids, Grant and Grace. We also have two fur babies, Bella and Cami. In my free time, I enjoy binge-watching Netflix shows, reading, antiquing, and creating memories with my family.

Caroline, Designer

Born and raised in a small town in Iowa, I discovered my passion for creativity through my constant need to make things unique. It wasn’t until I was studying photography in college that I realized I was meant to be an interior designer! As a child, I enjoyed touring homes with my father and his realty team, and I often rearranged the furniture in our home when I wasn’t outdoors with friends or taking photos. To my parents’ surprise, they’d find a new living room layout every other week!

With an associate degree in Interior Design and nine years of industry experience, I’ve found great joy in bringing clients’ dreams to reality. My favorite aspect of design is blending the old with the new, creating something special for clients using heirloom furniture pieces and trinkets. I love to create experiences through design and enjoy being part of a focused and ever-evolving team.

When I’m not designing, you’ll find me socializing over a patio cocktail, kayaking, biking, or enjoying the outdoors with my golden retrievers.

Brian, Project Manager

With 30 years of experience in the remodeling industry, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to every project. I have been a dedicated member of AIM for 17 years, including 14 years in installation and the past 3 years as a project manager. My comprehensive understanding of the remodeling process allows me to oversee projects from start to finish seamlessly.

I am passionate about engaging with customers, from the initial design measurements alongside our creative designers to working closely with our skilled installers throughout the project. I ensure that every detail is meticulously executed, culminating in a final walk-through with both the designer and the customer. My commitment to excellence and personalized service guarantees that our clients’ visions are brought to life with precision and care.

Corey, General Manager

I have been a part of AIM since its inception in 1988, starting full-time in 1998 as a plumbing and carpenter apprentice. In 2005, I transitioned to an office support role, where I assisted clients in the showroom, ordered materials, and worked with CAD. This journey eventually led me to the position of general manager. With experience in every aspect of the remodeling world, I enjoy collaborating with our talented team of designers and installers to deliver excellent customer service and turn our clients’ dreams into reality.

Outside of AIM, I enjoy hunting, fishing, and spending quality time with my family.
