Valene Tabone, Senior Designer, NCIDQ, LEED AP. K2M Design, Cleveland, Ohio

When designer Valene Tabone was a child, her grandpa built her a dollhouse with custom pieces of furniture to go inside. Her job was to think about the curtains, finishes, accessories, and the furniture placement. She loved creating the design of each room. This childhood love has translated into becoming an interior designer and getting to practice her passion each day.
