Design Manager, Principal

Lisa is committed to the idea that design happens at all stages of a project. As a Principal in Gensler’s Washington D.C. office, Lisa is passionate about space and design, and is motivated by the challenges of making ideas reality. She has been a key member in the delivery of several large, complex, mixed-use developments in the Middle East. A trained architect, Lisa has spent almost half of her career working on interiors, and strongly advocates for the development of spaces that have a shared story between the exterior and interior experience. Prior to joining the D.C. office, Lisa’s career at Gensler included experience in London, Doha, Abu Dhabi, and most recently, San Francisco.

She has taught architectural design at both Howard University and the University of Tennessee. She holds a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Cornell University, and a Master of Arts degree in History and Theory of Architecture from The Architectural Association. Additionally, Lisa is co-director of Gensler’s Center for Research on Equity and the Built Environment and a member of Gensler’s Global Race and Diversity Committee.
