New Leadership and a New Location

Lionakis is pleased to announce that Mary Morris has joined the firm as an Associate Principal in the Education Market. Mary will lead the firm’s new San Jose office, focusing on Education projects within the Silicon Valley and the Bay Area, enhancing the firm’s ability to serve clients in these areas. We are looking forward to building off of our Education foothold in San Jose to grow our presence in Education and to build our client base in both Civic and Healthcare projects. With more than 30 years of experience focused on the planning and design of public education facilities, Mary’s expertise includes facilitating site committees, making community presentations and overseeing multiple concurrent projects for clients throughout Northern California.

Mary’s passion for education extends beyond the walls of the school facilities she designs. As a member of the Santa Clara County College Day Committee and the Downtown College Preparatory School College Scholarship Committee, Mary inspires and supports first-generation college-bound students in their pursuit of a college education. Professionally, Mary is a member of the American Institute of Architects Santa Clara Valley’s Women in Architecture Committee and serves as a Mentor within the Coalition for Adequate School Housing (CASH) Facilities Leadership Academy. Additionally, Mary is the First Vice President of the Northern California / Northern Nevada Chapter of the Association for Learning Environments (A4LE). Mary’s community involvement extends to the YWCA Silicon Valley, where she has served on the Board of Directors for more than 20 years, supporting their mission to eliminate racism and empower women.

Mary holds a Summa Cum Laude Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley. She is a licensed Architect, LEED Accredited Professional, and a Registered Education Facilities Planner (REFP).
