Our Team

OUR CULTURE BEGINS HERE

Karen

Owner & Curator

Visionary leader & discerning trendsetter

 

Education through travel and school led Karen to a deep appreciation for architectural design, which she pursued through real estate sales. That career, however, was just the beginning. Because of the strong and personal relationships fostered between Karen and her clients, she was often asked to furnish the homes she sold them; thus a new venture was born creating beautiful lifestyles. Coupled with her lifelong appreciation for history and art, her raison d’etre became crystal clear.

 

Today Karen uses her passions as inspiration on her journey; traveling to far-flung destinations to discover one of a kind treasures and help her client create stunning designs, sharing the intrinsic beauty of true ‘patina’ through Patina Collection.

Kim

Retail Sales

“Woman with a smile that keeps on giving”

 

Kim’s love of warm weather and family brought her and her husband Scott from Chicago to Naples in 2019. Her years of experience in hospitality sales, event management and fashion led her to join Patina Collection as Operations Coordinator & Sales Associate.

 

Kim’s time at American Airlines and Four Seasons Hotels sparked an early passion for providing excellent customer service and attention to detail that she brings to Patina Collection each day. Creating a warm, welcoming atmosphere and attending to Patina’s day-to-day details are her specialties.

Haley

Brand Architect

Cultivating an energetic community through digital presence

 

At the young age of 21, Haley achieved great experience in business and fashion as a student at High Point University. Her eye for creativity was devoted to fashion while studying at Lorenzo de’ Medici in Florence, Italy. Because of the communication skills she fostered in her business, On Point Magazine, and her attention to the meaning behind fashion, Haley brings a spectrum of background to the Patina community. 

 

Today, Haley focuses on client relations while bringing together the talents of each Patina member. Haley promotes the brand on our Instagram @patinacollection.design and curates digital campaigns. Our Owner, is her mother, so the true ‘patina’ lies within her as well.
