A Texas native, Emily Mackie grew up surrounded by beautiful things. Inspired by this desire to create special surroundings, she moved to Chicago to attend the Illinois Institute of Art, where she graduated with a B.F.A. in Interior Design. She began her design career at Gensler and, in the years that followed, she continued to work on large-scale commercial interior design. In 2003, Mackie found her niche working in residential design. She received her National Council for Interiors Design Qualification (NCIDQ) and license in the State of Illinois, and became a professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID.) By 2004, she founded her own luxury design firm Inspired Interiors.
By building her firm and her team, Mackie has created a work environment where women can realize their professional dreams without sacrificing family. A mother of three, Emily balances family and work life with motivation and dedication and believes that with a supportive and uplifting network, we can all succeed.
