Lionakis is excited to announce that Laurie McCoy, AIA, LEED AP, has joined the firm as Principal and Healthcare Practice Lead.

With more than 34 years of experience, Laurie brings an impressive depth of leadership expertise, along with an extensive portfolio of award-winning healthcare projects. Based in our Newport Beach office, Laurie will spend time in each of Lionakis’ four other office locations as we grow our healthcare presence.

As an engaged leader, Laurie has a proven track record of success bringing teams together, building consensus and delivering results on projects large and small. Lionakis president Don McAllister says,

“Laurie’s level of talent is very hard to find, and we are excited to add her to our Senior Leadership Team. This is the perfect next step not only for our Healthcare Market, but also the firm.”

As she looks to the future of healthcare design, Laurie says,

“I am passionate about the work I do. A successful project is no longer just about the building, it’s a process of listening, understanding the client’s business, and their goals. My role is to design an approach, assemble the right resources, and guide a collaborative process towards outcomes that advance the client’s mission.”

The healthcare market and the delivery of healthcare is ever-evolving, and we are excited to bring Laurie’s passion for healthcare design to Lionakis. Coupling the Lionakis mission of Designing a Better Future and Laurie’s leadership will take our team to new heights.

A California licensed Architect, Laurie has a Bachelor of Architecture from California Polytechnic State University, Pomona. Please join us in welcoming Laurie to the Lionakis family!
