Meet our design team:
Jody Wallace - Owner

Jody has always loved everything to do with designing and decorating homes, from laying out the floor plans to picking colors, fabrics and furniture styles. She has been working in design for over 20 years.

Before moving to Portland in 2010, Jody lived all over the country, moving from southern California to the gulf coast of Florida, to the suburbs of Chicago.  Along the way, Jody has gained a wealth of experience, working with some very talented people and taking in new ideas from different regions across the country.

Jody has worked in the furniture and décor industry for over a decade. Her work in design started back in Ohio, where she helped homeowners work with contractors to design their ideal living space. She also worked as an interior design consultant, advising customers on color schemes, fabrics, and décor choices.  Her experience spans from starter homes to large, custom homes as well as industrial offices.

 

Jody loves working with people and has run a variety of service-related businesses, including beauty consultant, wedding coordinator, and birthday party services.  In 2007, she was selected for the top customer service award from among over 300 franchise owners.  She loves creating and designing, but most importantly, she enjoys helping people and making customers happy.

Jessica Patino - Accounts Manager

Jessica has been working with the GLW team since the very beginning. After years of staging, she now handles all scheduling, quotes, billing and runs point on our customer service.

 

She earned a BS degree with honors in Accounting from Southern Oregon University where she was also an SOU Raiders cheerleader and dance team member.

When she's not helping our customers or taking their money, she loves working out and hanging out with her sweet baby June, her husband Joey and her silly dog Dak.

She is has an eclectic style with a Bohemian flare. She loves blending different patterns and textures and can never pass up an opportunity to add a pop of color to a job.

Makayla Bajema - Staging Assistant

Makayla grew up in sunny Southern California, before coming to Oregon to attend Multnomah University, where she majored in Global Studies, with an emphasis on children at risk.  

 

After realizing college wasn’t the right fit at that time, she moved on to work in retail and eventually found a love for visual merchandising.  That’s what led her to the world of Staging and Interior Design and, ultimately, Greylyn Wayne.  And we’re glad she found us!  

 

Makayla’s smile and terrific attitude fit in very well with our team.  When she’s not staging beautiful homes, Makayla loves to paint, draw and create her own music.

Tori Horton - Staging Assistant

Tori is originally from Orange County CA.  In 2011 she graduated with honors from the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising with a degree in Product Development.

 

She has worked for companies developing a wide variety of products in different categories, including rugs, clothing, shoes, accessories and baby products.

Looking for a change which still allowed her to be creative, in 2020 Tori interned with an interior designer based in Los Angeles. She enjoyed the new challenges and different creative components to the position. When she moved to Washington in 2021, she joined the Greylyn Wayne team to broaden her experience in this area.

Tori is a foodie and in her free time she enjoys trying new restaurants (and hanging out with her dog!)

Mason Brickey - Lead Moving Specialist

Mason joined the Greylyn Wayne team in 2018.  He grew up in the High Deserts of Eastern Oregon, before he moved to the beautiful Portland area.  

 

Mason is the muscle.  He moves furniture, hangs art, and helps our stagers create masterpieces.  When he’s not working Mason enjoys playing with his dog, going to the gym (crazy, right?), and just being in the company of friendly people doing exciting things.

 

“If I had to pick a favorite part of this job... It would definitely be the team I work with. Very rarely do you get a team of people who get along so well and treat each other like family.”

Miguel Olmedo - Moving Specialist

Miguel attended St. Helens high school where he was a three sport athlete, competing in track, football and wrestling. And he was pretty good at wrestling. State Heavyweight Champ. Just sayin. He got a little tired of pinning people to the mat, so he decided to conquer staging.

Greylyn Wayne recruited Miguel because of his amazing customer service from his family restaurant in Portland. He is a people person with a big personality and he fits in great with our culture and team.

 

When Miguel is not moving furniture or hanging art at Greylyn Wayne, he likes to spend time with his friends checking out the local restaurants or wrestling at a practice meet.

Ken Shepard - Moving Specialist

Ken was born and raised in Kenya and moved to Oregon when he was still a kid.  After he graduated from Glencoe High School, he dove into Culinary arts and worked for various restaurants in the Portland area. 

 

He joined Greylyn Wayne because he thought our team was really cool and he liked the work.  He quickly became an integral part of our team with his easy personality and his big smile. 

 

When he’s not killin it with Greylyn Wayne, Ken loves sports, cars and making music.  His biggest passion is music and he records in his home studio.  Some day Ken will hit it big in music.  Until then, we are thrilled to have him on our team.
