Who is Kasey Harkin?
Kasey Harkin is a 32-year-old female Professional Tile Installer from Portsmouth, Rhode Island with over 15 years of experience in a male-dominated industry. Coming from a family of custom tile professionals, she started going out on jobs when she was just 8-years-old. Almost every weekend, rather than going out to play at the park, she would go out and visit construction grounds with her dad and her uncle... and she loved it! During one of her construction trips, her dad let her cut her first tile on a wet saw… and right there and then, with only 8 years of age, Kasey knew what she wanted to do for the rest of her life! She began working next to her father and learning all that there is to know about custom tile installation. “Tile is all I've done, I never had another job. I'm not a jack of all trades... I literally just work in the niche of tile” Kasey says.
