Shannon Ernst

Project and Business Development Manager

Shannon brings over 26 years of invaluable retail experience to JF Gardemal Designs, where she currently serves as our Project and Business Development Manager. Her journey into interior design was inspired during her time at the Ralph Lauren flagship store in Ala Moana Center, where her passion for creating beautiful spaces was ignited. After a successful 25-year career in retail, most recently as a District Manager, joining the JF Gardemal Designs team at the start of the firm’s journey was the perfect next step. Shannon’s commitment to excellence is unparalleled, evident in her dedication to ensuring each client’s project exceeded their expectations.   

When not immersed in the world of design, Shannon finds joy in the company of her husband Erik, their award-winning opera-singing daughter Julia, painting, and their two German Shepherds.
