The National Association of Professional Women (NAPW) honors Design Institute of San Diego graduate Victoria Gough as a 2017-2018 inductee into its VIP Woman of the Year Circle. She is recognized with this prestigious distinction for leadership in entrepreneurship. NAPW is the nation’s leading networking organization exclusively for professional women, boasting more than 850,000 members, a thriving eChapter and over 200 operating Local Chapters.
“I’m pleased to welcome Victoria into this exceptional group of professional women,” said NAPW President Star Jones. “Her knowledge and experience in her industry are valuable assets to her company and community.”
Self-motivated and results driven to succeed, Victoria Gough is a seasoned professional who has constantly set her goals to keep pace with her highest aspirations for personal excellence. Throughout her career, she has exhibited exemplary teamwork, expertise, integrity and dedication.
Growing up, Mrs. Gough was always amazed at how her mother could transform any room using her knack for decorating. It is what inspired her to become an interior designer. “My mom was an excellent artist and a very creative person,” she recalled. “When we would move from one house to another, as a child, I would watch my mother put a room together and make it look like it came out of a magazine.”
Today, Mrs. Gough is CEO of her own interior design firm, VG Designs, LLC. In this key role, she handles every aspect of the business, overseeing all the day-to-day operations, including finance, design, client relationships, shopping for and with clients, and managing all presentations and consultations. “But most importantly, my main responsibility is fulfilling and satisfying my client’s needs,” Mrs. Gough said. “I am skilled in Microsoft Office, AutoCAD, Adobe Photoshop, Revit and hand drafting, sketching and rendering.”
Mrs. Gough will continue to grow her company, offering clients interior design services of the highest quality, as well as continue to collaborate with Green Valley Property Management, LLC, Atlanta, GA, remodeling homes. “My future goal is to have my designs featured in Architectural Digest,” she added.
NAPW’s mission is to provide an exclusive, highly advanced networking forum to successful women executives, professionals and entrepreneurs where they can aspire, connect and achieve. Through innovative resources, unique tools and progressive benefits, professional women interact, exchange ideas, advance their knowledge and empower each other.
