Designer Profile

As a multidisciplinary design leader, I have spent more than two decades working across market sectors, including corporate, retail, commercial, hospitality, government, specialty clinics, and, notably, healthcare and wellness. Listening to what clients want is a big part of this profession. I love the challenge of working with a client, end users, and consulting teams to identify and synthesize the needs and then bring expected and unexpected solutions to the table. I value this collaborative and blended nature of architecture and design, mainly when working with healthcare end users.

I love traveling and reading good books, which have influenced and inspired the designs I have implemented throughout my career. As a LEED-accredited professional and wellness advocate, I embrace the idea that we can design buildings and integrate spaces that comply with the principles of social, economic, and ecological sustainability and use this as a driving factor in all design aspects.

My BA from the University of Florida has enabled me to pursue opportunities in almost every corner of the lower 48 and throughout Alaska.  My experience runs from medical planning, space planning, interior design, client management, project management, drafting architectural details, construction administration, and FF&E planning to owner occupancy.

My passions include sustainable design, hiking, and enjoying Alaska’s trails and waterways.  I have a personal interest in both state and national parks and have a goal to strive to be a good steward of the environment and seek improvement. I accept the challenge to leave this planet in a better place for future generations to love and enjoy.
