Employee Spotlight: Katy Goettl, Senior Interior Designer

Open-Minded, Willing, Collaborative, Supportive, Efficient.

“Design with purpose.” This simple yet powerful mantra is the one that senior interior designer, Katy Goettl, lives by. All of her designs are intentional, well thought out, and executed, and convey the message that the client desires, which makes her one of the best designers in the business.

“Katy is so determined in every project she works on,” says SHP President Lauren Della Bella. “She takes the time to think through an entire design before bringing it to life. Her approach is very cerebral, I would say.”

As a senior interior designer, Katy is tasked with developing interior design concepts and implementation, space planning, finish selections, construction documents, and furniture specifications. This may sound quite difficult, but we assure you, Katy is well equipped, seeing she has received her NCIDQ certification and LEED AP certification, both of which indicate excellence in the interior design industry.

Katy has many professional goals for herself and feats she wants to achieve, but her overarching goal for her entire career is simple. She hopes she was able to make other people’s lives a little bit easier.

“I’ve never been one for accolades. I hope that I made a positive impact and made someone’s day a little brighter,” said Katy. “I have seen the positive effect our buildings and designs can have on students and educators, so I want to continue to better the lives of those in our community and beyond.”

In her free time, Katy loves to do anything outside as long as there is warm weather and her kids are with her!
