Briana E. Dunkin

Briana E. Dunkin

Principal—Designer

Briana is an all-in creative spirit who enjoys bringing design visions to life and building client relationships. She designs to fit clients’ cultures and brands while creating unique environments that push the limits of design. Her favorite color changes daily, although today she’s partial to Sherwin Williams Cyberspace and colors you can’t even classify—grayish tan, anyone?

Shannon Glassley

Shannon Glassley

Senior Interior Designer

Shannon loves transforming dated or raw spaces into beautiful and fresh designs. She’s partial to how aged pieces add texture, warmth, and intrigue to a sterile environment. Interior design has been in her blood since she was a kid rearranging Barbie furniture, building forts in the woods, and creating houses out of big appliance boxes.

Stephanie Burkhart

Stephanie Burkhart

Senior Interior Designer

Stephanie loves sharing her envisioned designs with the world and appreciates the unique privilege of seeing her work come to life. She enjoys the current oversized lighting trend—the bigger the better!—and treats lighting as a design jewel, adding sparkle to a space. In her free time, she enjoys exploring new restaurants in the city with her husband and unashamedly watching reality TV.

Rachel Reynolds

Rachel Reynolds

Project Interior Designer

Rachel sees design as the perfect combination of art and science, and sincerely believes in design’s ability to positively affect health and happiness. She’s crazy about the trending use of warm metals in lighting, hardware, and even furniture. As a kid, she loved building model rockets bigger, faster—and prettier—than the boys, even winning a statewide award.

Wendy Smart

Wendy Smart

Furniture Specialist & Details Manager

Wendy sees design as the ultimate outlet for creativity, taking a space from ordinary to extraordinary while marrying beauty with function. Incorporating mixed materials is her favorite trend—reclaimed wood, stainless steel, subway tile, marble… you name it. Wendy has been in various choirs, and rarely turns down the chance to karaoke.

Maribeth Brennan

Office Manager

Maribeth appreciates design’s ability to transform a house into a home. In fact, she came to Parallel after working with one of our designers to create a comfortable space for her first home. She loves the color grey in design, especially the newer warmer oatmeal color that’s trending and claims her home will be in trouble when she stops liking grey!
