Blaire Hamel

Design Studio Consultant
Meet Blaire, one of Orlando’s Design Studio Consultants. With three years in the design industry, Blaire brings to a background in builder flooring and installation to Ashton Woods. She is extremely knowledgeable on the features and best applications for our materials. Blaire loves working in such a beautiful design studio and side by side with such talented designers. Plus, she finds helping buyers create their dream space is very rewarding! Blaire spends her free time chasing 3 young children around, hanging out by the lake and working on orders for her Etsy shop. Her best advice is to be yourself and design your home with trends that you love, and things that make you happy. Don’t rely on neighbors, friends or family for design advice – do what works best for your lifestyle!

Jaclyn Davis

Design Studio Manager
Hi I’m Jaclyn Davis, Orlando’s Design Studio Manager. I have worked in the design industry for eight years. My home is my favorite place to be, it is the best expression of myself. It represents comfort and love and it is a place I always enjoy spending time and welcoming in friends and family. The idea of helping others create their home, their haven, their happy place, their pride and joy is the best job I could ask for. I look forward to work every single day and love helping people look forward to their new home. I love to be busy and I keep my weekends full of traveling, dinners out with friends, date nights with my husband and time with my sweet dog Bree. I wish I could tell every customer to think big picture. What is the overall feel, mood and personality you want your home to have? Give us inspiration, photos and pins and we can help you with the details. For new homeowners the multitude of decisions can become overwhelming. We’ve got your back. So let us guide you and show you the way to creating your perfect home.

Miriam Ritter

Meet Miriam, Orlando's newest Design Studio Consultant. She graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelors of Interior Design. Excited to meet Ashton Woods clients, she will creatively design to each individual's unique lifestyle. As she has a strong design eye, she coordinates independent photo-shoots with friends and family. In her spare time, Miriam spends time with her children and at the pool. Her biggest piece of advice is to "Trust your gut, you'll be surprised as to how great your first instinct is!"

Kelly Cornell

Design Studio Consultant
I was initially intrigued by the studio process when I built my first home many years ago. I loved the process so much that I knew I wanted to help other homeowners create the home of their dreams. I love every moment of it! I have always had a long term passion for design and have always helped friends and family with their home décor. There are so many options here with Ashton Woods to customize your home and make it a reflection of you. I am open minded and love to live in the moment and just roll with what life brings. I enjoy spending time with my husband , 2 dogs (Charley & Lucy), family & friends, traveling to new destinations, doing hot yoga, and cooking. As much fun as building a new home can be, it also can be overwhelming as there are so many resources to guide you through this journey, just remember this is your home and we are here to help make it yours!

Darcie Harkin

Studio Coordinator
It is my honor and privilege to be working with Ashton Woods and to be assisting buyers who choose to put their trust in such a respected and award-winning builder. No matter which talented designer you find yourself working with, chances are, our paths will cross in the Studio! I will help make your design process as enjoyable as possible. My background includes a Bachelor’s Degree in Communications, a life-long love of interior design, and 10 years traveling the country as a marketing specialist and spokesperson for a national brand. The things that have remained true through the years are my passion for people and the need for a creative outlet. So weather it’s cooking, dancing, crafting, staging furniture for one of our impeccable models or working on a do-it-herself- project (as I like to call it) I am happy to have the freedom to express myself. The Studio, by Ashton Woods will help you express yourself by allowing you to add those personal touches with unique, inspiring options. I look forward to seeing you in the Studio soon!
