Linda Hambidge   CKD

As owner of Kitchen Traditions, Linda’s goal is not only to provide all of her clients the opportunity to work with a creative and professional design and installation team, but also, to most importantly enjoy the experience of creating a new kitchen.  Linda has been designing kitchens for over 19 years and carries the title of CKD (certified kitchen designer).  She has a B.S. Degree in Recreation Education with a minor in Art and has a certificate in interior design.  Continuing education is very important to Linda, as she frequently attends many kitchen/bath workshops and seminars offered by the NKBA (National Kitchen and Bath Association).

She often guides her clients through the design and product selection stages, but encourages them to actively participate as well.  She recognizes the importance of each client’s voice and understands that participation is the key to a successful project.  When not working on designs or managing the business, Linda enjoys bowling, gardening, reading and going for walks.

Mike Paradis

The professional installation of a kitchen can be as important as the design itself.  As the in-house installer for Kitchen Traditions, Mike’s expertise and meticulous craftsmanship are an integral part of a projects success.  For the past 23 years, Mike has been involved as a craftsman in the kitchen and bath industry.  He worked for 10 years at a woodworking shop building custom cabinetry. Other occasional projects include fireplace mantles, custom wood doors, built-ins, and other custom type cabinetry.  His career path has afforded him the opportunity to fabricate and install laminate counter tops.  For the past 12 years, he has devoted his career to cabinetry installation.  The quality of Mike’s work is apparent by his painstaking attention to detail.  Mike not only works hard, but plays hard.  During the summer, in his free time, Mike can be found on his boat.  Vacations include relaxing and scuba diving.  In the winter you can find him on the ski slopes or snowmobiling.
