Meet the Periwinkle Porte contributors…
Debbie Hindman is essentially paid to develop relationships. Nothing replaces face-to-face interactions in her mind. She spends her days creating lasting relationships as Associates III’s Marketer and perfecting her people skills. Co-author of Associates III’s book Sustainable Residential Interiors, her curiosity about Design has grown into a passion, second only to the arrival of her first grandson, who you’ll find her spending most Fridays with.
Amy DePierre is our resident nature enthusiast and agriculturally minded PR coordinator. In addition to her role with Associates III, Amy is currently pursuing her MS in Environmental Science at the University of Colorado, Denver while preparing to embark on the second season of a friend supported agriculture (FSA) adventure, City Mouse Garden. Have a shovel, skill and/or willingness to help? Amy’s always on the lookout for volunteers.
Kelley Cleveland is celebrating her first year as a part of Associates III. Supporting and assisting the team in all aspects and taking care of daily front of the house office on-goings is her cup of tea. As a newcomer to the industry, she has a lot to learn and is in the ideal environment to do so. When not working in Denver she sells antiques in Northern Colorado and is on the hunt to purchase her first home. Selling yours and live in the area? Let her know!
Agatha Strompolos forever searches for unusual sources to fuel her designs – whether it’s the shape of a vintage perfume bottle, the nuance of colors in a children’s book illustration, or the simplicity and space of a Philip Glass composition, she constantly records and collects material for future inspiration. As a graduate from Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design’s Interior Design Bachelors program, and a Design Assistant at Associates III, she loves working with a business that produces thoughtful, timeless, and practical designs.
Rachel Blackburn grew up in the foothills of Colorado and recently graduated from Colorado State University with a BS in Interior Design, with a concentration in Art History. She relishes her job at Associates III where she is inspired each day to design beautiful, functional and sustainable spaces. Outside of the office, Rachel researches ways to stay healthy and fit (and is currently addicted to green smoothies and Pure Barre) while also spending time with her favorite beings: her boyfriend and two dogs.
