Based in the Hinsdale and Burr Ridge area of greater Chicago, she is certified by NCIDQ (National Council for Interior Design Qualification) and also licensed to practice in the state of Florida, establishing a presence in and around the Naples area. Featured in a variety of publications, Mary Lou's dedication to excellence is also apparent in her nationally recognized award winning projects (see Press).).
