Meet Our Team
Andy Cabrera, co-owner, is a master carpenter with over twenty years’ experience in construction and project management. Andy has been designing and building custom homes for his adult life. He has extensive experience both in the field and in the office managing large scale projects. He brings a keen knowledge of cabinetry, woodworking, and logistics management to the business.
Betsy Cabrera, co-owner, brings nearly thirty years’ experience in business management and marketing to Simpson Cabinetry. As the business has grown, Betsy has transitioned more into marketing and business planning but she still interfaces with clients in both design and project management as needed. Betsy’s career has included work for both non profit organizations and for profit businesses on a local & national level as well as owning her own business before Simpson Cabinetry.
Kristina Machanic, our Project Manager, has been with Simpson since late 2018. With a background in journalism and as a former small business owner, Kristina is a great communicator and project manager! Kristina is the main liaison between clients and the design and shop teams here at Simpson Cabinetry - she will typically be the first point of contact for preliminary estimating and will keep track of the project throughout the design, production and delivery processes. Her organizational and communication skills as well as her keen eye for detail will keep your project running smoothly and successfully.
Wil Blanchard, Shop Supervisor and CAD Designer, has been with Simpson Cabinetry since its inception in 2002. Starting in the shop as a cabinet maker, Wil knows the ins and outs of not only how to design a beautiful cabinet but how to build it. Wil works both with the clients and the craftsmen in the shop from design to scheduling, production and installation. Wil keeps it all together for Simpson Cabinetry!
Dan Carhart, CAD Designer, has worked with Andy & Betsy Cabrera in their construction company for nearly twenty years. Dan is an expert in both VectorWorks CAD Design for construction projects and CabinetVision CAD Design for cabinetry projects. More often than not, Dan Carhart will be the person who draws your custom cabinetry for you!
Our crew also includes eight cabinetmakers who hand craft and finish every item that bears the Simpson Cabinetry name. Most of the crew has been with Simpson Cabinetry or Andy & Betsy’s other business for at least 10 years. The crew takes great pride in building the cabinetry that remains as heirlooms in homes throughout Vermont and beyond.
