Katie Gardner, NCIDQ

Interior Designer

An interior designer within Summer Consultants’ new architectural studio, Katie thrives on creating welcoming and comfortable environments that have a strong impact on the people using them. She works with clients to develop space needs programs, interior finishes, and furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E) packages for a variety of spaces including offices, classrooms, and commercial spaces. Her favorite part of interior design is seeing the all different parts, pieces and disciplines come together in the cohesive final design and construction, and looks forward to continued work on a diverse range of projects.

What do you do outside of work?

Outside of work, I like running, hiking and anything outside.
