Jiyoung joined Cline Bettridge Bernstein in 2006 and was promoted to Associate at the start of 2013.  Her undergraduate training in furniture design introduced her to the theory and practice of lighting design.  She went on to earn a Master of Fine Arts in architectural lighting design from Parsons The New School for Design in New York City.

At CBBLD, Jiyoung works on design teams for both interior and exterior lighting projects.  She has brought her design talent and technical skills to performing arts centers, community buildings, university facilities and large-scale works for international clients.

She is intrigued by the relationships that exist between light in its many forms and the way that people feel within the spaces where they work, play, learn and live.  She enjoys working with lighting forms and effects to create colors, moods and ambiences that make people respond positively to their varying activities and environments.
