KIMBERLY CLAUSS

Principal Sales Representative

Kim started her career as an interior designer, designing for several leading design firms in San Diego and San Francisco. With a passion for working with people and an insatiable desire for finding project solutions, she was drawn to work with her long time colleague and friend, Jane Steel, who under her wing, offered Kim years of intensive training and mentorship. During that time, Jane Steel + Co grew to become one of the leading rep groups in the San Francisco Bay Area. In January of 2017, Kim acquired Jane Steel + Co and renamed the business MōDE.

 

Kim’s enthusiasm for family, life, and fun is intoxicating. When she is not working hard at running her company, she can be found doing cartwheels and singing karaoke with her boys, or running along her favorite trails in the hills of San Francisco.
