He pioneered 7 states finding, training and building trade relationships with over 500 dealers and thousands of people.

Hello! My name is Dana Jackson, and it is a pleasure to meet you. I would like to tell you a little bit about myself, but instead of listing my credentials, I will offer some insight into what it would look like to work together. My hope in doing so, is that it helps you to decide if we are the best fit to take on your project. First and foremost, I pride myself on being in the business of building relationships; I just happen to sell window coverings while I'm at it. It is because of this approach and mindset, that the majority of my portfolio comes from repeat clients and referrals. My main objective is to be an advocate for you and your design goals. I start by listening. This world of endless colors, textures, styles, and prices can be overwhelming and confusing. I am here to help you navigate through all of the options. Once we have decided on the product, my role does not end when the sample books close. I am here throughout the entire experience, ensuring a smooth process from ordering to installation and answering any question that may arise along the way. As someone that wears many hats both personally and professionally, I understand that there are not enough hours in the day to do all of the things that we need to do AND that we want to do. My goal is to make this balancing act just a little easier for you to give more time to the things that you love most. Thank you for taking this moment to get to know me. I look forward to the possibility of becoming your window treatment designer and getting to know you and your vision.
