Alumni Spotlight


Merging Creativity and Logic in the Perfect Profession


For LSU alumna Dru Lamb, interior design has always been about problem solving. Her analytical brain has always drifted to logic as a method for troubleshooting and brainstorming. Lamb has spent the last 12 years of her life as a designer, mostly working for architecture and design firms. Now, she finds herself in a leadership role in the sales and manufacturing side of the industry. Earlier this year, she became the Louisiana Territory Manager at Herman Miller - essentially a manufacturer's representative who informs the architecture and design communities, as well as end users, of any updates or research going on in the field. 


Lamb is also active within the larger interior design community. She has been on the IIDA board for the past seven years and has held various executive positions. Additionally, Lamb is on the Louisiana State Board of Interior Designers, the licensing body of the profession within the state. Her work in both the business and creative side of the industry reflects her passion for her craft. "For me, it is all about the problem solving and coming up with creative solutions, and I still get to do that. Except now, I have more control and direction of my creativity."
