deVOL Kitchens and Interiors

Contributor: Robyn Dunsford

Robyn joined deVOL’s Cotes Mill showrooms in Leicestershire in 2016. In her role she enjoys chatting with customers and looking after the showrooms. She’s also using the opportunity to learn more about design and using CAD software. Originally from Germany, Robyn spent five years of her childhood growing up in Connecticut, America before she moved back to England. She still loves to explore and hopes to do some travelling of her own in a few years. A love of drama and dance led Robyn to undertake a performing arts course at Loughborough collage where she enjoyed performing with her team and learning all about practitioners and the history of the theatre. She now enjoys taking regular trips to London to see West End shows.
