Team Leaders

Kristie Knorr


Kristie studied Fine Art & Business at Purdue University, never imagining one day she would create a business that combined both interests. Yet in 2010 she founded IDR after spending over 10 years working in the industry as a designer/manufacturer sales rep for very reputable organizations.

The love of smart design and creating products to best fit clients’ needs with attention to their priorities and details, never gets old. “When you love what you do it really doesn’t feel like work.” She has had projects featured in regional publications and won awards through homebuilding organizations.

When not working on projects Kristie loves to take college & pod cast classes – “just because I like to learn new things”. Her 3 adult children bring great joy and grandmother is the BEST title of all! Youngest son is finishing final year at Naval Academy, as Captain of the Basketball team and preparing to follow in grandfather’s footsteps as a Flight Officer which endears all service families to her heart even more.


Nancy Martin

(Senior Designer)

Nancy has been with Impact Design Resources since 2010, but she has been in this business for more than 18 years.

If you ask her clients what she excells at, their answer would be “organization and space planning”. She is a ‘guru’ at how to put what where, and how! And Nancy loves to see her clients’ reaction to the finished results of her effort and talent.

Her clients also extol her virtues in ‘following up’ – she wants to make absolutely sure that her customers are totally satisfied with their experience with Impact Design Resources.

Nancy’s truest love is her family, but she is also a devoted supporter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation (she herself is a 13 year survivor), as well as the Make-A-Wish Foundation.


Katherine Goodman

(Office Manager)

Many years as a primary school teacher followed by additional years in ladies clothing retail management was perfect experience and training for her current position. Katherine brings much needed order and humor to the daily business flow where everything is always changing.

When not at IMPACT design Resources, she loves to travel to her mountain home, spend time with family, cooking, kick boxing, and of course, OD on personal home décor after seeing all the awesome projects completed at work.
