Alicia is a laboratory designer whose 20+ years’ experience has spanned an array of specialty sciences such as genetics, gene and cell therapy, personalized medicine, microbiology, cell culture, and PCR and sequencing.
From planning through construction administration and post-occupancy, she has led both consultants and internal teams through all project phases. Alicia considers herself a conduit for information to flow back and forth between the design and construction team and the owner and end-users.
“Alicia will play a key role in expanding our talent on the west coast,” says Steve Blair, Director of the Science & Technology Practice. “Her knowledge of specialized labs will allow us to deliver unparalleled solutions to our clients that are on the cutting-edge of scientific discovery.”
“I am a designer and leader that is very focused on teams and client satisfaction,” says Alicia. “I love that CannonDesign has the same focus. The firm has so many fantastic designers and initiatives with a focus on people and the joy of buildings. In my area of Science and Technology, I focus on people and making people healthy. I can’t wait to help make the world a better place.”
Passionate about sustainable lab design, Alicia is a thought-leader in this field, helping found the Colorado chapter of the International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories (I2SL) and currently sits on the San Diego board for I2SL.
