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:

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.
