Manager of Interiors and Equipment Planning
Allegheny Health Network
Nicole graduated from LaRoche University in 2004 and has spent the last 20 years working as an interior designer, lab planner and medical equipment planner. Nicole has worn many hats and her accumulated experience has led her to where she is today in the healthcare world. In her current role at Allegheny Health Network she manages the equipment planning, interior design and sign planning programs that support their construction projects. AHN self-performs many of these efforts, so their team is constantly balancing the pressure of standardization, planning and on-site execution. Nicole says it keeps them very busy and fulfilled. She is also very busy at home managing the schedules of her three children, Lukas, Miles, and Jaxston, with the help of her husband of 18 years, Brian. They also have a 14-year-old golden retriever named Renzi. As a family they enjoy traveling and taking their annual vacation to Edinboro Lake.
What has your experience been like working with MBM?
Over the years MBM has been a trusted partner for me personally my entire career. Some of my favorite moments include the numerous MBM/AHN think tank meetings surrounding the West Penn and Jefferson Imaging masterplans. The level of cross collaboration, brain power, strategic thinking, staging, and sequencing was and continues to be industry changing. I’m so proud to be part of these MBM/AHN collaborative efforts that include laser focus on delivering first class healthcare to our region.
What AHN/MBM projects have been most memorable?
The Jefferson Hospital Emergency Room and Wexford Pediatric Services; both were pivotal projects in our network.
What kinds of hobbies and interests do you have outside of work?
When I’m not working, you can catch me at my kid’s sporting events, running and riding my Peloton. Music is my path to sanity along with pumpkin beer!
Tell us something most people don’t know about you…
I’m obsessed with numbers and number patterns. For example, my birthday is 10/12 and my husband’s is 11/13. His address as a kid was 1012. Our first house address was 464 and now we live at 646. Now that I think about it, maybe the number patterns find me!
