Meet Our Team

Karen Van Dehy

Karen Van Dehy

Since the age of 13, Karen has loved the process and result of painting. The process, watching a surface be totally transformed, is immensely satisfying, but the happiness that comes as a result is perhaps even better. Whether the work involves new colors, stains, custom finishes, or repairing problems, the goal is always to bring joy to our client and allow them to love and enjoy their home that much more.

This focus on happiness spreads to Karen’s team as well. More than any particular skill set that can be taught, Karen looks for attributes in her employees that are not easily learned: motivation, passion, enthusiasm, and happiness that comes from doing a job well and seeing a smile on our client’s face.

Karen has a degree in physiology and genetics, but painting has fulfilled her deeper purpose and is where her true passion lies. When she isn’t working hard with her team she might be furthering her professional education by attending courses and workshops, or she might be outside with her family. Karen loves hiking, camping, and gardening in particular. She also is a Denver Nuggets fan!

He was born in Krosno, Poland and loves his heritage! Damian originally joined Karen’s as a Painter but quickly showed he would be a great Crew Leader and has now graduated to our Sales Representitive. He understands the industry thoroughly and has a lot of technique and product knowledge. His strengths are his detailed brush work, spraying, and he enjoys the fast-paced work environment.

When Damian isn’t running teams for Karen’s Company he enjoys hiking, playing video games, and spending time with his dogs, Riley and Kiwi. He also loves soccer! His favorite team is Manchester United!

Kristine is our awesome office manager! She is brand new but has picked up many skills very quickly. Her friendly and positive attitude make her a fantastic fit for Karen’s Company. She is always looking at how she can make processes flow smoothly in the office and we are very thankful to have her! She is initially from Buffalo Grove, Illinois and is brand new to Colorado.

When Kristine isn’t answering phones, she likes going to museums, zoos, aquariums, and enjoys taking a nice relaxing hike. She also enjoys walking her dog, T’la, and going to hot springs. Being new to Colorado, Kristine is still looking for new fun things to do here! She also works as a ride share driver on the side!

Josh has been with us for over 2 years now! He came to Karen’s Company with no painting experience and graduated to being a Painter. Josh brings a fantastic attitude to our team. He is kind and reliable and is very quick when rolling walls. We are thankful to have Josh on our team! He was born and raised in Denver.

When Josh isn’t rolling walls or taping straight lines he can be found hanging out with his family and friends and playing video games. He has a love for basketball and his favorite team is the San Antonio Spurs.

Alyssa Brayman

Alyssa Brayman

Alyssa joined our team 2 years ago! She is from Pensacola, Florida and moved to Colorado sometime in 2017. She was a personal trainer before she found Karen’s Company and decided painting would be a good fit because of the physicality involved. She has come a long way and acquired many skills working her way from being an Apprentice to a Crew Leader. She is very proficient with her attention to detail and takes a lot of pride in the quality of her work. This makes her a perfect fit for our cabinet team!

When Alyssa isn’t painting cabinets, she likes to go camping, out to eat, and does everything with her dog, Emma.

Hector Martinez

Hector Martinez

Hector has been with Karen’s Company for almost a year and we are very happy to have him! Hector is originally from Chicago, Illinois but moved to the area years ago. He has painted for a couple of different companies around the area, so he joined our team as a Painter. His straight cut lines and exceptional tape lines make him a fantastic addition to our team! He enjoys the teamwork and fluid communication of Karen’s Company.

When Hector isn’t cutting ceilings, he enjoys cruising around with his friends and washing his car. In the winter he prefers to stay warm watching horror and comedy movies.

Kihja Windsor

Kihja has been a shining star since she joined our team 3 months ago! With a natural gift of leadership and a great customer service background she has stepped into a lead painter position quickly. She has exceptional attention to detail, is a very quick learner, and a natural teacher. She is originally from Riverside, Ca but grew up in a military family and has lived all over the world. She most recently came to us from Seattle, so she is a Seattle Seahawks fan.

When Kihja isn’t working for Karen’s, she enjoys playing video games, hiking, swimming, and spending time with her dog, Loki. She also enjoys Studio Ghibli films and listening to lofi and EDM music.

Brian Stine

Brian Stine

Brian is originally from Decatur, IL but has lived in Colorado for a while now. He has been with us for about 4 weeks now but is a seasoned vet in the painting industry who has been painting for about 10 years! We are very lucky to have him on our team! His strengths in staining and brush work make him a highly efficient painter. He values Karen’s Company small family like feel and is proud of the quality of work and our finished product!

When you don’t see Brian with a paintbrush in his hand you will most likely see him with a fishing pole or out camping and enjoying the water with his daughters. He also loves listening to music as long as it is not Opera.

Monica Perez

Monica is brand new to Karen’s Company and the paint industry and we love having her! She is a quick learner and a pleasure to be around. She is a Colorado native growing up in Westminster! Monica pays great attention to detail and finds joy in the process of painting.

When Monica isn’t painting, she enjoys visiting rivers and swimming pools with her son. She also enjoys relaxing by watching Netflix and listening to the radio. Her favorite sports team is the Nuggets! Go Nuggets!
