Kia Weatherspoon

Kia Weatherspoon has 10 years of diverse design experience in hospitality, multi-family and high-end residential markets. She founded Determined by Design in 2012 to create interior spaces that enable the progress of people and their neighborhoods. Driven by a commitment to establish exceptional interior design as a standard for all, rather than a luxury for few — Kia seeks out opportunities to empower those who do not have access to well-designed spaces. She believes in service-based leadership, demonstrated through active involvement with several professional organizations. Kia is known as a fixture in the Washington, D.C. design community, a nationally recognized speaker and a trailblazer for design equality.
