Growing up in Austria in a beautiful small town between mountains and lakes taught Mandi appreciation for nature and the environment. As a child, she enjoyed skiing in the Alps and hiking. It was here where she first discovered her love for dance and the arts. At the age of 18, Mandi moved to Vienna to study Architecture at the Technical University of Vienna. Mandi met her future husband during a 6-month exchange program at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Since then, she has traveled to Vienna, where she graduated from Architecture School in 1995 before moving to Toronto. My architectural knowledge and my experience as a real estate sales representative was what led me to California Closets in 2011. Mandi feels that her position as a Design Consultant perfectly combines her love for design with her strong customer service skills. I receive a lot of joy working with clients; there's nothing more enjoyable then finding them the right storage and individual space solutions for their unique needs. I am very fortunate to say that I love my job, which I think reflects strongly in my design work and my relationship with my clients.

California Closets Reviews - Mandi Shields
- Very pleasant. Mandi, my designer, was great. She did manage to respect my budget and please me with the design of closets. She did a very good job with little space. The quality is great.
- She worked with me to tailor a closet and entertainment centre to meet my needs, and the finishes look great! The installers were professional and worked quickly to have both units up in no time. This is my second time working with Mandi, and I now have three California Closets units installed in my condo.
- Mandi was imaginative, practical & has stayed in close contact throughout this process.
- Mandi was amazing with us. She understood what we wanted and helped us transform it into reality. Thank you for a great experience.
- Amazing sales person. Highly experienced. Took the time to really understand what our requirements were and followed thru perfectly.
- All in all, I'd say she is a great example of combining professional guidance with client input! We would not hesitate to call upon her again. We are very pleased with the results and will definitely consider California Closets for any future projects.
- Very professional from start to finish. The result more than exceeded my expectations. I am especially pleased with the abilities and customer service skills of the designer working with me, Mandi Shields.
