AMBER HEPNER, Associate IALD, LEED AP BD+C

ASSOCIATE

Amber studied architecture at Wentworth Institute of Technology, where she earned both a Bachelor and Master of Architecture degree. As an emerging designer, she wandered into lighting design at Lam Partners, and was instantly intrigued. Here, she became fully engaged in the art and science of light, and has been enjoying the challenge of integrating light and architecture ever since. She is interested in staying involved in the local design community, and actively teaches (and hopes to inspire) lighting design at the BAC. Outside of Lam she enjoys being outdoors, reading, crafts, and exploring the city with her dog Joe…  oh, and ice cream, too!
