Diane McNabb Rodriguez parlayed her Interior Design degree from Illinois State University into duties as project manager and team leader in a variety of architecture and engineering firms in California, Kentucky and Indiana.
Concentrating in lighting design since 1998, Diane enjoys helping project teams deliver lighting designs balancing aesthetics, owner budgets and energy/LEED considerations. Her recent projects include hospitality, museum, sacred and medical sector work.
Diane is past President of the Indiana Section of the Illuminating Engineering Society, past Chair of the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD) Awards Committee, served two terms as a ‘Director at Large’ on the IALD Board of Directors, and is now a member of the 2018 IALD Enlightens America Conference Advisory Committee.
In her free time, she enjoys things that go fast, pursuit of the next perfect cookie recipe, and travel both close to home and to places far flung.
