Our ASID Emerging Professional wins Chapter Leadership Award

Kayla Weiner, ASID, CID is a talented  young designer with her eyes wide open and  her head on straight .  She is an asset to Design Exchange, Inc., our clients and to the American Society of Interiors Designers.  Interestingly enough the ASID Emerging Professional program was initiated a few years ago to help designers  who were just entering the profession after design school.  The program provides conferences and opportunities to meet other professionals and industry resources, to make connections and become involved in this dynamic industry.

You might say that she returned the favor.  As co-chair (with Shavonne Maclin) of the Washington Metro Chapter Emerging Professionals,  Kayla not only supported the other young designers in our area, she created a series of social, entertaining , and educational events that benefited new and experienced designers, showrooms, industry partners, and local artisans.

All of that, and still, client projects proceeded  on schedule, beautifully.  A true professional!
