As a student and then as a young architect, it was easy to get lost in the abstract processes of design – diagramming functional relationships, moving boxes on paper, shaping spaces – but I found a deep passion for healthcare design when working on a new Emergency Department for a local community hospital. With that project I was able to witness firsthand the impact of design as a driver of positive outcomes for patients and caregivers. The emotional reception by staff and volunteers at the grand opening drove home just how much it meant to finally have a facility that would allow them to provide the best care for their patients.

Fun Fact
  • My earliest memories were of living in Japan and traveling around the Pacific. My preschool teacher was Mrs. Honda (Iike the car) and I even began to pick up a bit of the Japanese language.
