Ashley Loy, born and raised in Southern California, recently graduated from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo with a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture. She joined New Life Bath & Kitchen two and a half years ago and has applied her many skills and knowledge to designing custom kitchens and baths. She is thrilled to be part of this experienced team of divergent thinkers. Highly motivated and quick to learn, Ashley enjoys soaking in as much information as possible about new products and tools in the design field. Having had opportunities to work in architecture firms in both Oakland and San Diego, she feels she has found a true passion as a kitchen and bath designer. With her highly-trained computer skills, she enjoys presenting computer-rendered images of her designs to her clients. Seeing the excitement on their faces and having the chance to work with them hand-in-hand gives her a true sense of how important a designer’s role can be.
