Senior Director, Healthcare

Senior Principal

Exceeding your expectations and advancing the design and planning of hospitals drives me. However, this is not a singular task. It is a process. It takes an integrated team of designers, engineers, and construction partners to complete our clients’ projects successfully.

Leading this process allows me to share my experience, help exceed your goals, and mentor the next generation of team members. I have worked on over $5 billion worth of major healthcare projects across the country and led empathetic and respectful teams. I believe in EYP’s mission to shape a better future through design. And seeing how the built environment can positively affect patients’ and staff’s well-being motivates me. With a career spanning four decades, I have seen how research and our evidence-based design approach can improve patient satisfaction and outcomes, reduce clinician stress, and promote recruitment and retention.

The Academy of Architecture for Health and the AAH Foundation have recognized my efforts to improve and promote healthcare architecture. I have also served as president of both groups. In 2012, I was honored as a Fellow in the American College of Healthcare Architects, and in 2016 the AIA inducted me into its College of Fellows.

I would love to share my experiences with you and discuss how our evidence-based approach to the design process can exceed your expectations.
