Meet the Team
I am one of the Owners of Georgian Design Centre along with my husband David who has since retired. I started with our family business in 1996 when the last of our 6 children went to school full time. I am originally from Montreal and moved to southern Georgian Bay in the mid 70’s and have been lucky to call Collingwood my home ever since.
I perform all of the administrative duties here at Georgian Design Centre and manage the lighting department which is my passion. I am very privileged to work with my son, 2 daughters, son-in law and our other incredible sales (work family) team.
When I am not working, I love spending time with our children and grandchildren who are my raison d’etre. Having strong family values which came from an amazing upbringing, goes hand in hand with ensuring that from the moment a client comes through the doors at Georgian Design Centre they are treated professionally and respectfully. Customer service is our number one priority
My personal interests are travelling with my husband David and maintaining my extensive gardens at home.
My name is David Labelle. I have been working for our family owned and operated company for 15 years and am extremely proud of what our business has become. When I am not working I am adventuring the Collingwood area hiking, golfing and boating with my wife Faye and our incredible son Leo. I have very large dog named Bear who comes to work with me in the showroom everyday greeting and getting lots of pats and treats. I am well versed in all areas of the showroom and have gained a vast amount of knowledge, experience and design style from my years with the company. I take customer care as my highest priority and want to make sure every customer comes and leaves with the best experience with Georgian Design Centre. I run the social media accounts for the company and arrange the showroom organization and planning for layouts, displays and new products. I would love to be apart of your project and look forward to meeting you.
My name is Joel Brock and I am one of Georgian Design Centre’s qualified sales associates. Many clients have said my friendly demeanor and caring personality has helped them enjoy the purchasing process at GDC. I like to ensure that the proper products are picked and used for each job to insure they will wear well and keep a long lasting positive relationship between my clients and GDC. I started working in the flooring industry over 19 years ago and my well rounded knowledge of our flooring, lighting and plumbing ensures that the process of choosing products for any job from small to large moves smoothly and efficiently. All customers have specific needs and budgets and I feel my job is to help find the right products for the right job to ensure proper performance and help the customers understand why some products may perform better than others. Born and raised in Collingwood, I look forward to raising my family in the same area and manner as I was. I look forward to meeting you and being able to help you through your purchases and projects.

As a Graduate of Georgian College Interior Decorating Program I have been blessed to start my second career here at Georgian Design Centre. The ability to deliver a custom, intuitive and honest approach to design has been one of my strongest suits and am pleased to work with a firm that shares those same values! I believe in quality, longevity and timeless styles that flow into an ever changing environment. My life skills and love of travel have facilitated a unique approach to Interior Design. I have deep passion for the artistic element of my designs infusing colour, texture and beautiful lighting that not only creates beautiful spaces but offers a one of a kind style specific to the homeowners I have the pleasure to work with. I am pleased to offer a keen eye for lighting selections just to mention a few… I look forward to working with you on your next project!
