Laurie Lehrich: Designer
Laurie Lehrich graduated from Purdue University with a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Design. Taking a detour from her creative endeavors shortly after college to start a family, she began her professional life a little later than most.
Never one to let obstacles like lack of experience, connections, or financial resources stop her, Laurie kick-started her career in Michigan in 1994, cutting her teeth in the world of kitchen design under the tutelage of a local general contractor with whom she gained additional detailed knowledge of construction processes and materials. Eight short years later, she moved her three children and two dogs down to Atlanta to join the team at Design Galleria Kitchen & Bath Studio, and the rest, as they say, is history. In her years with the Atlanta Decorative Arts Center and Design Galleria, Laurie has more than made up for lost time and credits her success to the creative inspiration of her coworkers and the support and love of her family.
