Owner, Founder, Painter
Joeci Gilchrest is the founder, the communications director, and lead painter for You Name It. Her typical work days are spent helping her clients achieve their perfect home and office space. She is able to provide consultations virtually or in-person, depending on the customers’ needs. She believes our surroundings should inspire creativity and calm, that getting rid of distractions help us get back to the people and things that are most important to us. She created You Name It to help others achieve this balance. When Joeci is not working, she typically heads outdoors to explore her backyard and the world at large with her husband, John, and their toddler. She enjoys working, walking barefoot through her vegetable garden, shopping for chickens online, snuggling her two doggos, and simply being outdoors experiencing all life has to offer.
