Ronda Fitton, Founder/President and Designer
Ronda began her design career in Solana Beach California in 1988 working for a small business in a very high-end boutique environment. She then worked for Interior Specialists in Irvine, California where she serviced large builders such as K. Hovenanian and Lennar Group. In search of a slightly less stressful community to raise a family, she and her husband left San Diego in 1996 and traveled the US visiting many possible options. Bend Won!
Upon moving to Bend in December 1996, Ronda realized there was an opportunity for a design business that serviced both Builders and Retail clientele by housing all the products for the home under one roof. Cascade Design Center, Inc. was born in 1998 and has been servicing the Bend community for 21 years. Ronda enjoys being the leader of CDC along with her husband Cy and brother Paul Broberg. Cascade Design is a true family run business.
Ronda still does design work for a select clientele and can be found at the store most days, but also spends more of her time with her 15-year-old daughter who is an avid horseback rider. She enjoys the active Bend lifestyle with her husband Cy, daughter Kirah and their 3 dogs (they also have a son in college at UC Boulder). Life is so much better when you love your job and love your location
Leah Hendrix, Designer
Leah is passionate about balancing beautiful living and/or working environments that truly inspire people to thrive with specific lifestyle needs for function and durability. She has been honored to have many custom homes featured- and recognized with numerous awards-on the COBA Tour of Homes. In 2014 she was thrilled to be chosen as the designer for the Net Hope Project, since the proceeds of the sale (nearly $75,000 as it turns out) were earmarked for those fighting cancer in our community.
Brooks College of Design is where she originally found her passion for color and textiles. But long before attending college, Leah knew she wanted to meld both creativity and customer service in her career. When she returned home to Oregon, she became proficient at running her own contracting business and upgrading investment properties for resale. She later became an award-winning retail visual merchant and trainer in the corporate world.
A native Oregonian originally from Bend, in her free time, Leah enjoys skiing, paddle boarding, hiking (with her awesome dog Bode, of course) and backpacking.
