Erin Carlson, AIA, EDAC, CSSBB, NCARB

As a registered Architect who holds two degrees from Georgia Institute of Technology, a Master of Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, Erin has dedicated much of her career to examining the healthcare environment. A Certified Six Sigma Black Belt, she is able to readily identify process improvements for clients, collaborating often at the C-suite level and beyond to study their business and unearth out-of-the-box solutions. In 2014, Erin obtained the EDAC (Evidence-Based Design Accreditation and Certification), which bolsters her ability to apply both industry-created and self-conducted research to built-environments and process challenges.  Her capability to understand varying perspectives, analyze them, and build on the ideas make her recommendations effective. Today, she applies her unique knowledge to a variety of healthcare construction projects such as new construction, full replacements hospitals, and renovations - always with a focus on the connection between design and clinical process improvement.
