Interior Designer & Carpenter, Known from ABC's "Extreme Makeover Home Edition"

Paige Hemmis may be an unlikely vision on a construction site, however, she is an extremely accomplished and skilled designer, carpenter and homebuilder. She is self-taught and is rarely to be found without a tool of some kind in her purse.

This Wisconsin-born, California raised entrepreneur has accomplished many feats and has started many successful companies. During her undergraduate work at the University of California, Santa Barbara, Hemmis became a licensed Emergency Medical Technician and taught first aid and CPR to student population, and graduated with Bachelor’s Degrees in both Theology and Psychology. In 1999, Hemmis formed Simply Elegant Weddings to help couples plan their special day. In 2001, she founded a real estate company that bought houses, renovated them and developed innovative rent-to-own solutions. In 2004, she sold both companies to pursue her career as co-host, carpenter and designer on the hit ABC television show, "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition." In 2004, Hemmis founded Tuff Chix, Inc., which provides performance workwear for women. In 2006, she released her first book, "The Tuff Chix Guide to Easy Home Improvement," to inspire other women to tackle DIY projects with confidence.

Hemmis is featured as a Lifestyle Design Expert on Hallmark’s daily show, "Home and Family." She is constantly working to develop TV & Film projects and is currently working to expand the Tuff Chix product line. She is an extraordinary philanthropist and humanitarian. Both in her entertainment and real life, Hemmis contributes an exceptional amount of time and lends her celebrity to supporting numerous worthwhile causes such as Habitat for Humanity, Helping a Hero, Heroes at Home, the Starkey Hearing Foundation, and The Innovative Giving Foundation.

Hemmis is a licensed Real Estate Broker, and continues to design and build a variety of projects, while helping homeowners and business owners all over the world. She owns multiple properties and is always searching for the next flip. Her total renovation projects total over 30 personally, and over 200 on the original run of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition."
