Simmons Floor Covering Team

Our Team

Scott Gaulden

Welcome to Simmons Floorcovering and Total Renovations - I'm Scott Gaulden the owner. I've now owned Simmons for over 19 years. I'm proud of the legacy of customer service and satisfaction we have built and intend to maintain our high standards.

I have an MBA from The University of North Texas and prior to owning Simmons I worked in sales and marketing for several Fortune 500 companies.

I have been married to my smoking hot trophy wife for 34 years and together we have raised 3 grown children. When not at work I enjoy biking, scuba diving and watching high school football games. I am also active in my church and specifically work with families of special needs children.

James Stopar

Hello, my name is James and I am a new manager at Simmons Total Renovations. I have over 20 years of experience in insurance restoration and remodeling. I enjoy helping people achieve their visions for remodeling and bringing back the feeling of normalcy after a loss has occurred to a property and all of the inconvenience that comes with that process. My specialty is working with insurance carriers to speed up the recovery of daily life and getting the project back to like it never happened.

I enjoy playing golf and spending time with friends, family and my customers.

Jose Enciso

My name is Jose Enciso, and I was born & raised in Dallas Texas. I graduated from Naaman Forest High School in Garland TX. My biggest inspirations are my daughters, 5 and 3, and my fiancée. During my free time, we usually spend our time taking our kids to the park, swimming or spending time with family, we love watching movies together, and listening to music.

I started as a helper/installer, but I always wanted to move up. When I was offered an opportunity to start as a project coordinator/manager, the whole thing became my passion. I learn something new everyday. Nothing makes me happier than to remodel homes/businesses and my client’s faces when their projects are completed.

Lisa Miller

Hello, my name is Lisa Miller. I was born and raised in Chicago and lived in San Diego where I started my career in flooring.  I have 2 adult children and 6 grandchildren back in Chicago, and 2 adult children in San Diego.  I moved to Krum Texas in 2019 where I live with my husband.  While living in San Diego and Texas, I accumulated over 17 years in the flooring industry covering residential, commercial, restoration, and multi-family projects. I also have an extensive career in the arts and an eye for design. 

When I am not helping families find that perfect floor, I am a self-taught metalsmith and jewelry designer.  Here at Simmons Flooring our core focus is to provide our clients with the best possible home improvement experience.  I look forward to helping our customers find the perfect options for their uniquely individual tastes and needs.

Wendy Hill

Howdy! My name is Wendy Hill and I am a proud new member of the Simmons Floor Covering team. I am looking forward to helping our customers turn their dream homes into reality.

There’s a family debate about how Texan I truly am since I wasn’t born here. However, I’ve lived in the DFW area 98% of my life, so I classify myself as one. I have been married to my wonderful husband for almost 17 years now. We have 2 fur babies that are completely spoiled, along with our godson and niece. Life outside of work is filled with hanging out with family & friends, watching movies, reading, gardening, and cooking/baking. I’ve been doing photography since high school, and continue to enjoy creating & designing images for my clients.

Hi, I’m John Rudolph, even though I’m new to the Simmons team, I’m not new to the flooring & interior refinishing industry. My experience in flooring began at the Sherwin Williams Company and includes sales & management of several flooring stores. I’ve lived in several areas including Las Vegas, Nevada, where I was president of a multi-million-dollar flooring corporation. 

Most recently, I was the owner of Texas Flooring & Interiors in the DFW area for over 10 years. My resume also includes being a columnist for high-end home magazines, where I’ve worked to help many homeowners make the best floor buying decisions for their lifestyles and environment. 

Randy Sherling

Born in Paris, Texas. My father was the principal of a small East Texas school district. I graduated from McArthur High School in Irving and went to the University of North Texas.

During high school, I started working for PPG Paint in Dallas and continued working there for 5 years. After working & managing many construction projects, I formed a company with my brother that we ran together for over 20 years. After my brother passed, I took a job with a company based in Houston that did overseas work. I worked there for over 7 years until the birth of my twins. During this time, I restarted my construction company again, while also working for a custom builder as a project manager. My construction company specialized in home remodeling, and we began using Simmons Floorcovering & Total Renovations on flooring & shower projects. I was so impressed with the quality of service they provided & excellent workmanship, I joined their team and now I work for Simmons as a Construction Project Manager.
