Healthcare Design Work

I have spent my entire career working in healthcare, first on the consulting side now on the owners side. I would never leave this industry, its where my passion is. I love working closely with physicians and understanding all of their specialities so we can make the physical environment work for them. I’d like to think I just  “get” healthcare.
