Hello, I am Lorraine Linkhauer, adjunct faculty member here at Chatham University and owner of Imagination Grid, LLC, a unique design services firm in Pittsburgh. My goal is to inspire the creativity of our students through topical and thought provoking materials. I bring a mixture of experience from a tenured corporate history that evolved into over ten years of residential design experience. My design firm now focuses on sustainable and universal design concepts and I recently achieved my certification in CAPS (certified-aging-in-place specialist). I work additionally with PPG as a color consultant, speaking occasionally at the PPG Design Center, and other area venues such as Phipps Conservatory about color, sustainable design, and home interiors. I am happy to see that you have taken an interest in Chatham University, please look through our website to see just how wonderful our program really is.
