I did not know that healthcare architecture would become my life’s work, but I was drawn to its complexity.
Finding solutions to multifaceted challenges keeps me motivated. I inherited my analytical slant toward problem solving from my parents—an engineer and a math teacher—and was somewhat surprised to learn in a high school drafting class that I could use my creative drawing skills to communicate complex technical elements. This set me on the path to architecture, and I haven’t looked back.
My entire career has focused on designing healing environments, and I’m continually inspired by the new riddles to solve and knots to untie. From synchronized programming and operational requirements, to addressing the engineering demands of complex building systems, healthcare design is an equally challenging and rewarding accomplishment. My focus in resiliency work is something I’m particularly proud of, and I look forward to continued collaborations with hospitals and government organizations to mitigate and protect communities from potential future devastation.
