Gigi Ward, Stone Consultant
Gigi comes from a multi-branched creative background that includes corporate retail kitchen & bath design, clothing, film, art and graphic design. She has a knack for being able to see how all the individual parts play into a bigger picture. Customers appreciate her ability to tune in to their aesthetic style to find the stone that best suits their home and lifestyle. Customers often invest a lot of time searching online for kitchen inspiration and know what they want before walking in the door. Then they walk into the showroom, and suddenly feel overwhelmed by the wide selection of colors and patterns and find themselves unable to decide which direction to go. As a Stone Consultant, Gigi helps walk customers through choice paralysis to make the countertop buying process simple, low-stress, and budget friendly. She loves being a part of a large family here at Peak Stone and the fact that she can rely on her coworkers. She appreciates that PSC treats every customer the same, no matter their budget. Most importantly, with her big box/retail experience she appreciates that homeowners who work with PSC have a simple, streamlined process and don’t have to call six different departments and be on hold for thirty minutes to find out what natural cleaners is best for their countertop; that’s important. Gigi is originally from a little town in Harlan County, Kentucky. In 2017 she moved to Indy and joined the Peak Stone team. Gigi lives with her partner and two cats. When she is not working or spending time with family, you can find her creating something while passively listening to TED talks or binge-watching popular television series or documentaries.
