Kristen Fairbanks

Kitchen & Bath Designer

Kristen started her career with a marketing degree and an MBA, which she used to create online marketing solutions for multiple clients. Her intense love of color, space planning and design aesthetics propelled her to make a career change from mastering tools needed to build a strong brand online to working with "tools" to create custom kitchens unique to client's style and home offline.

Kristen's path naturally led her to pursue and complete both an Interior Design degree and Kitchen and Bath Design degree at JCCC where she finished at the top of her class as an Honors Student. While attending JCCC she was elected President of the JCCC Student Chapter of the ASID. She is currently the Communications Director on the board of the local professional chapter of the ASID (American Society of Interior Designers).

Prior to joining Classic Kitchens Design Studio, Kristen held a Design Associate position with a local Kansas City high-end furniture company where she enjoyed assisting clients with their space planning needs, as well as their furniture, fabric and accessories selections.

Kristen takes great pleasure in allowing her creativity to inspire her whether it is writing, making jewelry or designing any room or space that happens to be within her proximity. Her greatest joy is using her creativity to guide her teenagers – aspiring entrepreneur son, Jace, and future film maker daughter, Jilian – into their transition to adulthood. Her dog, Bosley, "the goofy boxer" has been a long standing member of the family and Olive, "the fluffy white heart" love puppy, was recently adopted from a local shelter. Kristen's equally creative husband, Kit develops online marketing campaigns and websites for the medical industry.

Classic Kitchens Design Studio is happy to have Kristen join the team of designers who share her passion in creating kitchens and baths offline and in house.
