Jeff has over 25 years of experience in the flooring business. Starting in college, where he majored in Forestry, he has always been a technical guru on all things flooring – with an extra special interest in wood! Jeff started his career in the ceramic tile industry, worked in the carpet business, and in both retail and wholesale wood flooring before he opened Independence Floor Supply in 2012. He has been fine tuning our offerings ever since – focusing on wood flooring, tile of all styles, finishes, abrasives, machines, and machine rental and repair.
In his spare time, Jeff enjoys camping, kayaking, spending time with his wife, Steph, and their loveable dogs!
Steph has been in the flooring industry for over 25 years! She has been a part of most all aspects of supply and sales throughout her career – from purchasing agent of wood and tile, to retail sales, to office manager – and continues to be the one to keep everything in line in her role at Independence Floor Supply since joining Jeff in 2015. Steph wears many hats at IFS, including accounting, estimating, delivery coordinating, and much more!
When not in the office, Steph can be found walking their 3 Shiloh Shepherds – Gambit, Havok, and Wade!
