Katy Fachko, Sales Associate & Reception
Katy migrated "south" from Alaska and first joined Gardner in 2002, quickly becoming a valued employee and favorite with many of our customers. She returned to Alaska in 2007 to spend time with her family, but fortunately finally tired of the cold and has returned to us with even greater experience in sales and customer service. She offers enthusiastic support for our outside sales staff and loves working with customers as well as selling area rugs and creating displays.
Luke Morrow, Sales Associate & Estimator has 17 years of retail and construction experience. He started working as a warehouseman right out of school and soon was going out with installers to help with jobs. Learning from the ground up gave Luke an understanding of the complexity of the flooring industry and the hard work needed to succeed. His resourcefulness and enthusiasm make him a valuable asset to our team. Luke and his wife Bradi enjoy parenting and playing with their two beautiful children, Bodhi (16 yrs) and Teagan (1 year).
Shawn Heim, Sales Associate
Shawn recently relocated to Eugene from the Midwest where he spent many years building custom one off homes and restoring century old homes. His well rounded experience in restoration and finishes brings an exceptional spin to Gardner. He is also an antique furniture hoarder, gardening guru, and backyard barbecue connoisseur. In his spare time he works with Artspark to bring arts back to the public schools. We are delighted to have Shawn as a member of our team.
Eowyn Teel, Sales Associate is the newest member of our sales team. Her experience, creativity and positive attitude have made her a very welcome addition. "Floorcovering has been a part of my life for many years. My knowledge base started while helping my father with ceramic tile installations as a teenager and has continued with years of retail experience in the flooring and window covering industries. I enjoy the challenge that each new project presents, and finding solutions for unique situations. My oldest daughter Anice attends OSU, and my younger daughter Kiara is in high school. When schedules allow, we enjoy hiking many of the beautiful locations this area has to offer."
