Laura Salo | Operations Manager
Laura Salo grew up in West Virginia, but she’s spent most of her life on the coast – first in Cape Cod, MA, and then in Wilmington, NC, in a move for the warmer shores of the Carolinas. When she joined Strickland’s in 2003, Laura already had experience in operations management. Over the past fifteen years, her role has grown to include overseeing all of Strickland’s day-to-day operations for all divisions – scheduling appointments and repairs, placing orders, working with special requests, and more. For Laura, the greatest joy of her job is who she gets to work with and for. As she says: “Fred is an amazing leader and has gathered the most amazing, talented, and dedicated team.”
When she’s not keeping the ball rolling at Strickland’s, Laura enjoys riding bikes with her daughter, camping out on the beach with family and friends, and listening to books on personal growth. During football season, you can find her cheering on the Green Bay Packers at one of her garage football parties. If she could have any home organization product, it would be a custom closet for the garage, as she has plenty of party supplies to store.
Laura’s take on:
- Blinds, Shades, and Shutters: Not sure which window treatments are right for you? Laura’s a pro at scheduling consultations with designers to who will help you get exactly what you need.
- Home: For Laura, custom shelving with lighting is a must-have for any dream closet space.
- Draperies and Fabrics: Laura recommends exploring all your options for custom draperies and fabrics— tailoring everything to your particular space and style.
- Custom Garages: There’s no better feeling than a well-organized garage. Laura says the key to keeping everything in order is decluttering: “If I haven’t used something within a year, it’s outta there!”
