“I didn’t know firms like Ebbrell existed. Now I look forward to Mondays,” says Lauren Foley, NCIDQ, LEED GA, interior designer. Foley, who has been with Ebbrell for 18 months and has over 13 years’ experience in corporate interiors including working for international firms on high-profile projects for corporate and healthcare clients in New York and Boston, says of the workplace culture at Ebbrell, “We deliver great designs for our clients because we feel supported in our jobs.”

Rachel Molé, LEED AP, interior designer, started her design career in healthcare focused on international work and gradually found herself designing university recreational centers. Years later she began designing workplace projects ranging from 240sf lobby refreshes to 390,000sf corporate headquarters. Molé joined Ebbrell five years ago and says, “It’s been wonderful to use my design skills on some really interesting projects.” She cited the great mix of talent and the flexible work schedule as other benefits of being on the Ebbrell team.
