Kris Eising
Design Assistant

After a successful career as a dietitian, Kris returned to school to pursue her passion for healthy kitchen design. The beautiful style and function of Puustelli cabinetry drew Kris to our showroom. Once she learned more about the innovative and ecofriendly cabinet construction along with Puustelli’s commitment to exceptional customer service, she was hooked.

Kris joined Puustelli as our very first design intern, which evolved into her current position on the team.
