Healthcare Design Work


I have always been intrigued by how the built environment can shape human behavior. That coupled with an aptitude for organizing solutions, led me to a career in medical planning. I continue to be passionate about creating environments that can improve patient outcomes, enhance patient safety and enrich the overall patient and caregiver experience.
