With a passion for design and learning, Mindy O’Gara blends both of these talents into her daily role as Director of Product and Learning Experience at Interface, global commercial flooring company and leader in sustainability. After achieving a Bachelor of Interior Design and working as a commercial interior designer for several years, Mindy joined Interface and served in various design and marketing related roles. Today, Mindy is empowered by her previous expertise as a designer and marketer to manage her most valuable position to date. With a focus on stimulating excitement and establishing connection to the learning process, she educates both internal and external audiences on Interface’s product offering. Mindy demonstrates the significant role of material choice and its effects on how we experience three-dimensional space. When Mindy is not igniting the learning process at Interface, she enjoys the outdoors and her garden, where she learns from one of her greatest mentors – nature.
