What the kitchen means to me:

The kitchen is the “heart of the home.”  No matter how often we try to move the party to the family room or the living room, everyone wants to stay in the kitchen!  The kitchen is the place in our home where we express our love through sharing wonderful food and wine with family and friends.  No matter how big or small a kitchen is, we're drawn to the warmth of the oven, the delicious aromas of bread baking, or the anticipation of soup simmering on the stove.  It is our joy at Westwood to be a part of making your kitchen an extra special place for you and your family!

A little more about Angie:

I have spent my life in kitchens, literally and figuratively!  My Dad, Nick Grasa, founded Westwood nearly 50 years ago and I continue to work with my family today!  I have spent my life and career surrounded by beautiful kitchens at Westwood and also in our home!  There is nowhere that I would rather be. Today, it is a privilege to be leading the business and continuing to work with Westwood’s incredible team. We work together to make dream kitchens a reality for our customers.

I am often asked “Why kitchens?”.  My answer: How wonderful to spend my career working with people as they plan, design and have their dreams realized in a new kitchen!  For many families, a beautiful kitchen is something that they have hoped for and dreamed of for many years.  To be a part of this with our customers is a privilege.  Over the years, I have met and been a part of this process for many wonderful customers who have become friends.  In many cases, I have worked with families numerous times through their life journey as they build or renovate different homes and then continue to work with their children as they grow into their own homes. Our tagline “It’s Our Kitchen Too” reflects our passion.  At Westwood, we all bring this dedication to the kitchen we are building for your family.  It is our joy and honour to be a part of your stories.  Thank you for letting us share this with you!

What the kitchen means to me:

The kitchen is the center of the home where memories are made. It’s an environment of learning, expressing, sharing and laughing. The kitchen is a place for creating and invention, and of bonding with family and friends and building relationships that last a lifetime.

I enjoy european-style kitchens that are very open and clean, with a low gloss finish in multiple colours.

A little more about Curtis:

I was born in Edmonton, and grew up in the Yukon, Alberta and Peachland. After high school, I followed my love to create and went on to further my education in the Machinist trade. I eventually worked as the VP of Operations for an equipment manufacturer in Alberta, where I worked for eighteen years.

I now live in West Kelowna and, having always loved anything that goes fast and any physical challenge, enjoy working in the fast-paced environment of running a factory in the kitchen industry. Ten years in the kitchen industry has opened my eyes to how valuable this area is in the family home and how important it is to deliver a quality experience to all of our customers.

I am also the proud father of two amazing sons, who (unfortunately) have the same need for speed as I do!

What the kitchen means to me:

A kitchen to me means family, health, and communication. It is where the family gathers to cook together, whether or not each participate in the actual act, as well as talk about everything going on in their lives. I grew up always having the family together for at least 2 meals of the day (breakfast and dinner). My parents always took turns cooking to make sure their growing family was fed, and coming from European heritage, eating was important! This is also a significant piece to living a healthy lifestyle. I was raised on eating whole foods and a balanced diet so having a great space to create a healthy meal for yourself or your family is essential as well as makes it more enjoyable. It is the first room I look at in a home and it is the foundation of the home to me. It is the room where the day begins and ends. It is the most popular room where people hang out and enjoy everything it has to offer.

A little more about :

I grew up in the Okanagan until I moved to Victoria, BC to pursue an accounting degree at Camosun College. This led to going even further and obtaining my Chartered Accountant designation (CPA) in 2011. I worked in public practice as a co-op student and post grad, and I knew almost right away that I wanted to work in the industry and pursue the controller/CFO path. During my post public practice career, I have worked in many industries including textile and bast fiber manufacturing, oil and gas services, and transportation in Victoria, BC and Calgary, AB. After being away from the Okanagan for 15 years, I decided it was time to move back. I am thrilled to be living back in the Okanagan where I am close to my family, the water, and the amazing lifestyle this area brings. My passions outside of work include staying active through weight lifting, golfing, and really anything outdoors. I am a lifetime learner and the subjects I focus on are health and wellness, self-development, cryptocurrencies, and spirituality.

What the kitchen means to me:

The kitchen is the central hub of the home where everything happens. To me, the most important thing about a kitchen is that it’s functional, efficient and welcoming.

A little more about Jeff:

I’m a Kelowna native and have lived here for most of my life. I moved to Toronto to begin my career after finishing my Engineering Degree at Lakehead University in Ontario, but then eventually migrated back to the sunny Okanagan. I now have a wonderful wife and four children who love exploring all that British Columbia has to offer.

I’ve worked in manufacturing all my life, from building trucks and busses to cars and kitchens. In the 16 years that I’ve spent at Westwood, I’ve installed just about anything imaginable and have watched as the company doubled in size.

What the kitchen means to me:

This is where conversations cultivate while the sugo (sauce) is simmering and where great wine is being sipped & shared. From recipe creations, to connecting with my family and friends…this is what the kitchen means to me. I was brought up modestly in a home that cherished our abundant crops from our garden and fruit trees, along with the fresh fish and game that my father provided. We were encouraged to be creative and bold with our cooking and to be equally so with who we are as people. My Italian roots are the foundation of my love for cooking and my passion to entertain is innate. My motto at our kitchen table is, “there is always room for one more”.

A little more about :

I’m very lucky to have spent nearly my entire life here in Kelowna. My roots are firmly planted in the community that I never take for granted and there is honestly nowhere else that I would rather call home. I have an amazing husband and 2 incredible grown children that I could not be more proud of! We love to camp and get away, disconnecting from our busy lives, slowing down and being truly present around a campfire, or on the lake.

Professionally, I have done everything from customer support, being a VP at a small manufacturing company, to 6 years in the tech sector, touching down in non-profit for a couple of years and then landing here at Westwood. When I list out where I have been and the cross section of industries I have navigated, I am SO grateful for each one that lead me to the next chapter. Through everything that I have done, all of the experiences and knowledge I have gained, my driver has always been ‘people’. Whether your organization is a start up with just a handful of employees, or an industry leading cabinetry company that is in the 150’s, the foundational pieces that you build within your organization and teams are the same. My passion of being a people & culture builder is fostered here at Westwood and I am deeply grateful to be a part of an organization that encourages creativity and being bold, just like my family kitchen.
