PLATINUM SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT
Top 40 Over 40 of the Week
As the ASID National turns 40 this year, the Wisconsin Chapter is also celebrating our experienced and accomplished members age 40 and over. We'll feature one or more per week, culminating at our Annual Chapter Meeting. Meet...
Years in the Industry:
Place of Employment:
FORM & FUNCTION, Inc.
I have many favorite projects, as I’m motivated by the challenges of each new one—listening, collaborating, problem-solving. I love working in many different design styles, drawing out the individuality of each client and their needs.
Words of Wisdom for your younger design self:
Never stop asking questions, never stop learning and being involved. The good news is that I followed my own prescription.
The other words of wisdom I saw inscribed on a museum wall:
this is the law:
no same leaves
places times faces
whoever disobeys the law
What else would you do if you weren’t an Interior Designer:
Be an interior designer. I’ve always loved design and valued creativity, but it took many years after I graduated until I became comfortable with the business of interior design. I have no intention of “retiring,” because design and the people I work with are integral to my life. I’ll also continue to love hand crafts, cooking and baking, walking and exploring.
ASID WI “Top 5 Under 5” Awards – COMING SOON!
Are you an Emerging Professional who actively participates in the Wisconsin Chapter of ASID? Do you work with an extraordinary Emerging Professional who strengthens the creative working environment at your firm or business? As an Emerging Professional, do you create and take advantage of opportunities to support the interior design profession in the public realm as a passionate ambassador of your chosen career?
If you said “YES” to any of the above, take note! The Wisconsin Chapter of ASID is excited to announce that nominations for the ‘Top 5 Under 5 Awards’ will open July 14th!
The award recognizes the achievements of Emerging Professional Chapter members (designers in the first five years of their professional career). The ‘Top 5 Under 5 Awards’
