Throughout my life, I’ve always had a passion for sports and competition. Being able to design the environments where everyone from the world’s best athletes to students seeking healthier lives is able to share in this passion is thrilling for me.

At the forefront of sports design, Colleen McKenna leads CannonDesign’s Sports, Rec + Wellness practice. Colleen’s diverse portfolio includes college and university recreation centers and intercollegiate athletic facilities. Colleen brings an in-depth knowledge of functional planning requirements, which helps her to meet the diverse needs of both competitive and recreational athletes. She regularly speaks at NIRSA events, writes articles for Athletic Business, and serves on design awards juries.
