Kathleen Jensen, Sales Professional


I come from a long history of customer service and care, with over 15 years of experience with Lippert’s Carpet One. I specialize in customer service, design and project management. I have a vast technical knowledge, gained while working in installation for three years prior to beginning my journey in sales with Lippert’s. I strive to educate the client, simplify the buying process, and keep it problem-free. Prior to floor covering, I spent 10 years of service in the dental field, working my way from assisting to office management. I live to serve, but my true love is my family. I am strong in faith and happily married with nine children and eight beautiful grandchildren. I love spending time with family enjoying nature, attending sporting events, music concerts, church activities and all things Disney.

Matt Van Buskirk, Sales Professional


I have been a sales professional with Lippert’s since 1993, and have worked from the Medford location. My prior experience before coming into the Lippert’s organization included floor covering installation and apprenticing in N. Hollywood, and Beverly Hills before moving to Southern Oregon in 1975 to start on my own. I spent 13 years installing before venturing into sales at a small family shop in Medford. I out-grew that shop after 7 years and was able to bring my experience to Lippert’s. When I'm not busy beautifying homes for my customers, I enjoy bicycling around the Rogue Valley, averaging around 100 miles a week.
