About me

Occupation Manager, Residential Lighting
Location Chantilly, Virginia, United States
Introduction Catherine Schlawin graduated from The College of William and Mary with a BA in psychology and quickly figured out there weren't many jobs available with that degree! She had temped at Dominion Electric Supply the summer before and was easily drawn back into the business. In 1995 she became the manager of the Chantilly showroom, and she has never looked back to psychology ~ although she uses it every day with her co-workers and customers! Catherine strongly supports the American Lighting Association and believes that all good lighting designers should be certified. She first achieved the Lighting Specialist designation and then later went on to be a Certified Lighting Consultant. Catherine can be reached at
