I am an Interior Design Associate at Array Architects with a sustainability design focus. I earned my Bachelor degree in Interior Design from Buffalo State College (SUNY) and my Master degree in Sustainable Design from Philadelphia University. During my five years with Array, I have developed expertise in the planning and design of large-scale replacement and renovation projects – including those dedicated to oncology and long-term acute care services. I have facilitated projects from $15 to $250 million in construction value, and I work directly with hospital staff to ensure their organization’s values, business goals and project expectations are achieved.
