LaDonna Eriksen – Vice President Education Content & Advancement

LaDonna Eriksen, CLIPP #189, has been an educator all of her life. She has extensive education experience with over 41 years of teaching with the final 24 years at the Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, Nebraska teaching Anatomy/Physiology and Genetics to Health Care pre-professionals. Her extensive knowledge of how the human body functions is what she attributes to much of her understanding of how correct design is invaluable to making a home accessible, healthy, and safe.

Her involvement with design and construction began in 1985. She has worked with many clients creating beautiful, yet functional environments in their homes. She is especially proud of her work in the area of developing kitchens and bathrooms. LaDonna used many of her past unusual concepts in designing her own newly constructed home and has established many outside-of-the-box designs and solutions that surprised craftsmen working on the house. To make lives easier and better for her clients, she incorporates many smart technology features in her designs.

LaDonna served on the NKBA Nebraska/Kansas Board for 11 years and is a Living In Place Institute Ambassador.
