Meet our Expert
As the Director of Accessibility at Lionakis, Michelle Davis is a versatile Architect and Certified Access Specialist (CASp). Over her 25 years of practice, Michelle has developed a unique understanding and appreciation for developing access compliance solutions. Michelle possesses a rare combination of both creative design skills as well as excellent construction document and detailing knowledge. As a proven problem solver with a robust knowledge of building codes and accessibility requirements, Michelle has demonstrated the ability to effectively communicate with staff, clients and consultants, all while managing budgets and deadlines. Michelle explains, “My passion for access is driven by empathy, both for the people using the buildings and owners trying to be compliant. Eventually every one of us will need the elements in an accessible building. The idea that, with just a little planning, facilities can provide rich opportunities for full participation in life for everyone– shopping, entertainment, education, civic activities– is truly exciting to me. Think about it, a fully accessible, integrated city makes the difference between education and ignorance, between health and disease, between dreams and nightmares. Give any one person an opportunity and the possibilities are endless. Our society as a whole only gets stronger with every individual’s involvement and participation.”
