The IES Albany Section is proud to present our June 23rd 2022, in-person, AIA Presentation – Lighting Overview for Healthcare Facilities. Presented by Kathy Waterous with Moxie Lighting. Kathy has 25 years in the lighting and electrical distribution industries and has a wide range of product knowledge and experience.

Throughout her career in the lighting and distribution industries she earned her master’s degree in psychology from SUNY New Paltz.
