As a small business owner and general contractor, Catherine D. Baker has a passion for design and construction. After graduating from Ohio University's Russ College of Engineering with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Technology, Baker entered the construction industry as a project manager for a custom home builder in Tallahassee, Florida. Here, Baker sharpened her eye for design by working with some of the industries top architects, interior designers, and craftsmen.
Today, Baker still enjoys living in Tallahassee and maintains her own successful general contracting business that services Federal Government agencies throughout the entire Eastern United States. Baker's secondary focus on the design side of construction has lead to numerous high profile opportunities in which she has established her design capabilities in a big way.
Putting her stamp on Tallahassee via its very first boutique hotel, Hotel Duval, Baker showcased her attention to detail and proved that design is more than what you see, but also what you experience. Creating a big city feel with southern roots, Hotel Duval quickly became "the place to be" in Tallahassee.
Never too many steps behind, Baker's dog Gus has become the office mascot. Working hard to greet clients and provide occasional entertainment, Gus makes daily rounds to ensure nobody takes themselves too seriously.
"Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work."
