Cathy has been a commercial interior designer for over 3 decades and has worked at Design Collaborative the last ten years where she is the director of business development. She owned and managed her own commercial furniture and interior design business for 20 years prior to her current role. Cathy has a bachelor’s degree from Purdue University in interior design and has been a professional member of ASID since 1988. She is excited to serve the association by helping to build a stronger community for our members, by bringing educational opportunities to enrich our knowledge, and advancing the profession in our state. Cathy has big dreams of being a karaoke star. Unfortunately, she can't carry a tune. In high school, she was a church organist and was in a handbell choir for 20 years. Her love of music and karaoke dreams pair nicely with her current BD career, as any time alone in the car can become an epic jam session.
