Sales Team




Cindy started this company in 1978 with little more than a knowledge of the industry (from an installation point of view), a small corner in a stationery store for her office, and a huge desire to make her customers’ homes beautiful for a reasonable price. One of her greatest talents lies in taking the existing along with the new and pulling everything together. Her number one goal has always been to make sure her customers are happy.

Family is one of Cindy’s greatest joys. You can see the happiness in her eyes when she is surrounded with kids, grand kids and a gaggle of pets.

Owner/Managing Partner

Sunny literally grew up in this industry. His apprenticeship started at the tender age of two when he went out on a carpet installation with Cindy, his mother. Growing up, he spent most of his summers working in the family business. When Sunny was nineteen, he decided to devote 100% of his focus to the floor covering business to see what would happen. As it turned out, Sunny became Cascade’s top sales associate after a year or so. He continued to work very hard to learn every aspect of the business and joined his mother as a partner in the business in 2002.

Sunny also takes great joy in his family and loves to travel and camp with them. He also enjoys scuba diving, baseball, skydiving and the occasional hand of Texas Hold’em.

Jeff joined Cascade Flooring America in the Fall of 2014 and became a certified flooring consultant within the first 2 months. He moved on to pursue his passion of working with people and helping them realize their dream of a new look in an old space or a completely new build.

Whatever the customers motive is for coming into Cascade Flooring America, they always seem to crack a smile when working with Jeff. He likes to present flooring options in a fun way, so the focus can stay on the final appearance of the project rather than the tension of product selection. This follows his motto, “taking the boring out of flooring”.

In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his two boys, baby girl and beautiful wife, as well as back-packing, rock-climbing and brewing beer.

Katy joined us in 2004 as an assistant in the bookkeeping department. She learned everything so quickly and did such a great job that Cindy, one of the owners, decided that she wanted Katy as her personal design assistant. Although Katy enjoyed working in the ‘paper end’ of the business, she finds that she really loves working with Cascade’s customers, and has continued classes to learn decorating techniques as well as to increase her product knowledge. She is also a Hunter Douglas® certified sales assistant.

Whether here in our showroom or in your home, Katy will help clients choose the perfect window treatments, flooring or counter tops.

Kevan Kelsey has been a part of the cascade flooring team since march of 2013. He has been on both our warehouse and installation crews learning the ins and outs of the flooring industry. Recently he has transitioned to our sales staff bringing lots of hands on knowledge with him.

During his spare time he has trained in mixed martial arts and completed a associates degree at Clark college, but now he spends most of his time with his family enjoying all the new experiences that come with raising a son.



A veteran of this industry since the mid 80s, Lynn strives to provide the best possible customer service for his clients, a dedication that extends to running ‘emergency material deliveries’ to assure that installers have everything they need on the job for a great installation.

Lynn loves golf and says he tries to play ‘at least twice a year.’ (We think at least a few dozen times would be more accurate). Bowling is another of his many talents and he manages to score around the 200 mark most of the time.” Lynn’s children are involved in sports which keeps him pretty busy acting as their personal practice trainer and chauffeur. Two of his older sons are experienced filmmakers and insist that he ‘star’ in their Christmas movies. So far, the Hollywood offers are not pouring in, much to Lynn’s chagrin and our delight.

Shawn began learning about this business more than twelve years ago when he started cleaning carpets with his cousin, Sunny Parsons. That experience gave them a great base knowledge about all the different types of carpet and how they wear and look over the years. After spending several years in the financial world, Shawn rejoined the family fold as a Floor Covering Specialist and works exclusively with our builder clientele. The builders appreciate Shawn’s eye for detail and technical expertise and are confident that they can rely on him to get the job done on their schedule.

Shawn is a great family man and when time allows, loves to play golf, poker, and is a self-admitted sports ‘fanatic.’ He also loves to participate in the ‘my team is best’ discussions that occur on a regular basis around lunch time.

His specialty is carpet but also installs vinyl and laminate flooring. Tom joined Cascade’s floor covering installation family in 2003 and has become very important not only in installations but in the training aspect as well. Tom prides himself on the quality of every installation and won’t leave the job until everything looks great and the customer is happy with their floor coverings.

After family and home, one of Tom’s favorite past times is going outdoors on a great afternoon with his metal detector searching for illusive treasures. He has a very interesting collection of old metal items including jewelry and coins. It’s always fun when Tom brings in his latest ‘find’ to share with us.



Frank joined the Cascade Flooring America installation team in 2009, bringing with him twenty years of experience in the industry. Before Frank became a Cascade employee, he had been doing quality work for us as a subcontractor since 1991. His professional goal is to apply all of his talents, abilities and experience to each job and leave it looking beautiful for the customer.

He is skilled in all types of flooring installations, as well as laminates, but considers vinyl to be his specialty. Gary very obviously loves what he does and prides himself on being a perfectionist.

Gary is a very easy going, fun loving kind of guy, enjoying walks with his wife, Nicole, and their two German Shepherds in his free time—a commodity which diminished very suddenly and dramatically with the recent arrival of their beautiful new daughter. Gary is most definitely the proud papa and loves spending time with his newly expanded family.

Scott has been in the flooring industry for 25 years. He is very detail oriented and always strives for perfection. Scott began his career as a carpet installer, but over the years has perfected the skills necessary to install tile, stone, wood, vinyl, laminate wood and counter tops, too. Scott has a very unique set of characteristics; he is both punctual and a perfectionist, yet he is also very laid back and easy going. He becomes friends with everyone he meets.

When he’s not working, his main hobby is hunting for rocks, which he then cuts and polishes. Scott is very outdoorsy and loves to camp. He and his wife of many years have 9 children. Scott is also the doting grandfather of his first grandchild.
