Milwaukee Blacksmith, Zoey

Zoey Knapp

Role at Milwaukee Blacksmith: Project Designer

Role in the Knapp Family: Oldest Daughter, The Balance

As the oldest of the Knapp children, and the only girl amongst the older siblings, Zoey can hold her own in both the shop and the family. “Jr mama” for her whole life, she is Shannon’s right hand in all things. Zoey acts as the balance of the Knapp kids; picking up the slack on necessary tasks that the boys aren’t interested in doing.

Zoey has always been artistic, and when Kent has a client with a specific aesthetic in mind for a gate or a fence, he’ll bring in Zoey to help with the project design. She has started to join him for meetings with clients and location scouts to take measurements and get a sense of the space. She loves seeing her designs come to life all over Milwaukee.
