Margaret Ruehle

Interior Designer- Margaret@ieLighting.com

“Interior Design is my second act after 27 years in the healthcare field. I love working in lighting – a specialty within the interior design field. Good lighting is so important to enhancing the look and feel of your home, but it can be complicated – I pride myself on being a source of guidance and expertise for my customers. I enjoy using my creativity and design background to help customers find the best lighting for their homes. I find the special thing about working at Illuminating Expressions is the collaboration among our sales team and our commitment to excellence in customer service which ensures our customers receive the best possible care. I’m glad to be working in the design field with others who share my passion for lighting.”
