Inga Leonova, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP
I started my professional career as a staff designer for a non-profit organization serving the people with substance and alcohol abuse, AIDS, and mental health issues. I believe this is what formed my passion for healthcare design as primarily a social endeavor with significant responsibility for people’s wellness and sense of well-being. Whether in a small community clinic or on a major hospital campus, I strive to deliver the best possible healing environment for all users.
Inga is a design leader in both the health and education markets, as well as a respected expert in sustainable design and the integrated project delivery process.

An impassioned design educator and mentor, Inga has over 20 years of teaching experience and currently serves as an adjunct instructor at both New England School of Art Design and Boston Architectural College. In her spare time, she edits a journal on religion and culture.
