4 Interior Designers Earn NCIDQ

Four of the interior designers at BarberMcMurry have earned their National Certification for Interior Designers Qualification (NCIDQ). 

Kristin Bowman, NCIDQ; Julie Dalby, NCIDQ; Katie Lowery, NCIDQ; and Barbie Corzo Thomas, NCIDQ, are now licensed professionals. Professional, licensed interior designers are qualified by education, experience and examination to enhance the function and quality of interior spaces. 

Kristin, Julie, Katie and Barbie join Abby Farr, a recent interior design graduate from Auburn University, in the largest interior design team of any architecture firm in the area. 

Kristin has been with BarberMcMurry since 2015 and specializes in healthcare and higher education design, working with clients that include East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, Pellissippi State Community College and University Health System. 

Julie joined the firm in 2014 and is the interior design team manager. She works on a wide variety of project types, recently with clients like Analysis & Measurement Services Corporation, Webb School of Knoxville, and Knox County Schools. 

Katie has also been with BarberMcMurry since 2014. Her eye for design has benefited clients including Radio Systems Corporation and the University of Tennessee. 

Born in Buenos Aires, Barbie joined BarberMcMurry in 2018. She has recently worked with clients the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture, Summit Medical and Cherokee Country Club and has led the team in pro-bono design projects — like a recent interior makeover for a disabled Blount County teen through Kingdom Design Ministries.
