Mindi brings nearly five years of experience working in Chicago on a variety of projects with a focus on Higher Education, Workplace and Science Lab. She graduated from Maryville University with a BFA in Interior Design where her love for space planning and finishes began. She is involved in all phases of design including strategic planning, programming, FF&E selections and coordination, construction documents, and construction administration. Currently, Mindi serves on the IIDA Illinois Chapter Board as President. She thrives on challenges and her client-centric approach to design makes her a valuable resource for both the client and the OKW team. Outside of interior design, she enjoys spending time with her little family and connecting with friends. Depending the season, Mindi’s idea of the great outdoors involves camping or snowboarding.
