Janice has been interested in interior design her whole life and made her dream a reality more than 15 years ago. She learned many important things in her first two careers as a NICU Nurse and an Addictions Counselor, that she is able to use while designing. She loves to see living spaces transformed, blending the functional with the fabulous. She will keep your best interest in mind when designing your space so that the end result reflects your design style. Her goal is to create a beautiful space while developing a relationship that will continue on when your project is complete.
SARA BENJAMIN, NCIDQ
Design Build Coordinator
Sara has been following her passion for Interior Design for 20 years. She began in the Cruise Ship industry designing cruise ships for Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruises and has been working in the residential field for several years. She enjoys the details, coordinating everything right down to the last inch (more like millimeter), making sure that everything is just the way you want it.
Judy is living the dream! During her husband's military career, Judy has "set up house" at least 15 times in 24 years. With four overseas and four stateside assignments, she has experienced many cultures and design styles. Judy takes pride in her ability to have made each house their perfect home for her family, at every stop (no matter how short). Finally "home" in Tucson, Judy couldn't wait to further her education and she has earned her Associate's degree in Computer Aided Drafting. Filled with excitement, Judy's energy and her experiences are focused on you and the space of your dreams. We are happy to have Judy on the Dorado Designs team.
Account Manager and Executive Assistant
Deedee manages our accounting department as her first priority, but as with many small and family-owned businesses she wears additional hats whenever needed. She has many years of experience in the “back office” and has worked across multiple industries. She enjoys working at Dorado Designs because of the versatile nature of the business and she believes is it always a bonus when the process brings anticipation, excitement, and joy to its amazing clients.
