We at CAG, have had the opportunity to develop a great business relationship with Virginia and look forward to continuing to work together with her on many future endeavors.
“My passion for healthcare design has led me to AAHID, and I felt that its mission is in line with my career path and I had to be a part of it. So I completed the required credentials by obtaining the NCIDQ certification in 2011, and passed the CHID exam in the spring of 2013. Although I am passionate about residential and commercial design projects, I believe that my true calling is in healthcare design; Creating healing environments that promote safe mobility and independence to patients give me true satisfaction, knowing that I am making a difference in someone’s life by improving their living spaces”.
For more than two years, Lori led a multidisciplinary team of designers, vendors and contractors to envision, procure and install more than $12,500,000 of furniture and integrated information technology for the state-of-the-art William T. Clements University Hospital at the UT Southwestern Medical Center. Lori actively collaborated with her customers to successfully balance dynamic cost and time constraints and to maximize quality and value. Adept at communicating with all audiences, Lori is a proactive and reliable partner who adds value through her on-going design research and articulate aesthetic insights. I look forward to future opportunities to work with Kilter (https://www.thekilter.com/)and Lori McGilberry.
Lori brought the rich experience of her diverse interior design career to Gerflor and contributed to the company from a unique approach and perspective. Due to her key position within the design industry, including her tenure as president of the American Academy of Healthcare Interior Designers, Lori brought credibility and focus regarding the design process to Gerflor that we had not had in the past. Lori is always proactive in pursuing the best, evidence-based methods to build our brand, develop our product and educate our team about design in general and healthcare design in particular. Lori facilitated focus groups vetting new product prototypes across the US and collaborated with our US marketing team and design team in France based on the results, providing invaluable product insight. Lori speaks design easily to many different audiences and effectively builds design “bridges.” We look forward to continue working with Lori in the future.
