September 2nd: Determined by Design

Join us this Friday at 12 PM to hear Kia Weatherspoon.

Kia Weatherspoon’s path to interior design was unplanned. After 13 years of training as a ballet dancerher colligate pursuit of her childhood passion was inevitable. What Kia didnot foresee was being unable to afford her dream at the university level.  Her solution to the lack of financial aid led her to the U.S. Air Force in 2001. Kia’s plan was simple to utilize the military’s educational benefits to pay for her academic endeavors. She intended to serve her country during the day and continue her dance education at night. After 9/11, she was deployed. As a soldier, Kia tried to create what little sense of comfort and privacy she could with a tent, sheets, and a cot. This small space evoked an emotional reaction and a lasting memory for Kia. She left the military in 2004 she new she wanted to create spaces.  Kia was a designer for 10 years doing Hospitality, Multi-Family and High-end Residential projects before she founded Determined by Design. A boutique firm specializing in designing and crafting interior stories.
