Back to Our People

Karen Martin


At CannonDesign, we have an immense opportunity for growth and development. This drive is the heartbeat of the studio floor, and I know this is the reason why so many of us love coming to work every day. Let’s be proactive in recognizing our employees, rooting them in a strong work-life balance, and providing them with a spectrum of avenues for continuing education. Let’s appeal to every 'why'.

Karen graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Architecture from the University of Maryland, and continued her education at the University of Pennsylvania, graduating with her Masters of Architecture in 2016. Since graduation, she has worked on all phases of design in the healthcare studio. After designing and documenting the exterior facade of Sheppard Pratt Behavioral Health Hospital, she has moved onto the planning team of a community hospital for Penn State Health. She currently serves as the sustainability coordinator for projects in the Baltimore office, and is an active member of the office’s recruitment process.
