If you pop-into her studio today, you can find a few crystals scattered around intentionally decorating the space with style and great energy for her clients. It’s no wonder that her lure to energy later turned into further studies of Feng Shui which she prides herself on providing to clients when requested.
Kassandra received her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and emerged herself into the Natural Stone industry starting off as a customer service representative for a local Granite Counter Company. After spending almost a decade in the countertop industry, working and obtaining all the knowledge she possible could, working hands on in the Fabrication Floor, Scheduling; Designing with Slab Smith and Digital Template, to commercial projects and high demand ones too, she decided to step up to the plate and open her own Countertop Studio.

In order for GGP to be one what aims to be for your Stone Project the team has to be top notch too.
For many years Kassandra worked with different trades people, and develop the most crucial network relationship for her Business with out even knowing. Her hungry for knowlodge pushed her to see and learn what is difference between a good stone polisher from the best stone polisher, from a calibrated digital machine to a totally mess machinery in a fabrication shop, the understand of the risk of a marble veining and what cutting notes would be important to "remember" the CNC Operator to achieve certain goal for that specific project.
Its really talking each project as the most import of all, and it is.
