MHAworks Welcomes Emily Gaines

February 26th, 2018

Emily Gaines, hailing from Alexandria, VA, joins MHAworks as the newest interior designer in our Durham office. Emily earned her Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from Radford University, graduating with honors. Following graduation, Emily held a number of internships where she gained experience in a number of architectural fields, including but not limited to government/municipal, workplace, healthcare, higher education, multifamily housing, and senior living.

Emily exhibits an immense passion for evidence-based design and enjoys creating built environments that reflect the observed needs of users and that impact them meaningfully. At MHAworks, her primary responsibilities will be to collaborate effectively with project architects and designers as she focuses on healthcare facilities to ensure purposeful and functional interior design.

When she’s not envisioning evidence-based design, Emily enjoys line dancing and two-stepping, exploring small southern towns, and celebrating the latest UVA win. She has her Evidence-Based Design Accreditation & Certification and is a member of both the American Society of Interior Designers and the Construction Specifications Institute.
