Your name:

Kerry Russell

What do you do?

I am an Interior Designer. A couple of years after the housing crash of 2008 I resigned from my position at a mid-sized Architectural firm as their Director of Interiors to start my own contracting business where I marketed my services to Architectural firms, Interior Design firms, Realtors and General Contractors. My business has been so successful that it has blossomed into a more permanent position at a local Interior Design Firm and a small Architectural firm, Dadoworks.

What prompted you to take part in the UNDEFINED project?

I was inspired by the Undefined project because I love the idea of being undefined! Everyone is constantly trying to put everyone in this tiny box, figure them out and label them. I am not defined by any object and I am most certainly not defined by what I wear or how I look. I like to think that I am an ever evolving version of myself.

What stereotyping have you faced in your career, and how have you handled it?

Becoming a project manager early in my career, I found it very difficult to get the respect that I deserved in this male dominated industry. I was often dismissed, ignored and even disrespected. I overcame these situations one by one with persistence and continuity.

A main passion of mine is sustainability and through my career I am able to make “green” choices that not only save my clients money but also save precious natural resources. Certifications: NCIDQ No. 26459, LEED Green Associate
