Lindsay Schley-Design Consultant: Lindsay Schley has a wide range of experience in the window fashion business. She was born into a family of window covering connoisseurs in Cuyahoga Falls Ohio. Her father went to work for her uncle Vernon who owns a custom drapery business in Akron. Her dad was then offered a sales position with Kirsch which moved the family from Ohio to North Carolina to Michigan. After the move to North Carolina her mother decided to get into the business as a drapery installer. When her father retired from Kirsch he went in to business with her mother, and they have been installing window coverings for over 20 years. When Lindsay moved to California in 2004 she was unsure of what direction to take with her life. She then discovered that a local bay area Budget Blinds was hiring for an office position and was hired immediately. She quickly went from entering orders to being their full time installer. She had plenty of hands on experience installing window coverings including cellular shades, wood blinds, draperies, and shutters. The year and a half she spent at Budget Blinds was good training for the position she now holds at the Alcatraz Shade Shop. She has been with Alcatraz Shade since 2007 and has gone from answering the phone to a cherished sales person. Whether she is in the store educating clients on window coverings, in the home measuring and consulting, or professionally installing window coverings, the owners at Alcatraz Shade know that their clients are in good hands.
