The need for attention to detail in healthcare design
work. Even the smallest details contribute to the
effectiveness of administering healthcare, so they're all
important. I will never forget a corner guard again.

THREE UNEXPECTED ITEMS ON
YOUR DESK

1 mud-built model

of a Peruvian hut. I
bought it during a
service trip in Peru.
It's a reminder of
the beautiful and
meaningful work we're doing.

2 my EDAC certificate, which I

earned in January.

3

a spider plant. The touch of green
nature is refreshing.

Q U O T E "I'm always prepared to be amazed, and I
am never disappointed."-Celeste Headlee, journalist
and radio host.
MOVIE CHAR ACT E R
Samwise Gamgee from
"The Lord of the Rings."
I mean is there a more
loyal person in the
history of ever?

JESSICA SYMONS

Architectural designer,
TreanorHL, Kansas City, Mo.
WORKING IN healthcare design for

nearly a decade, Jessica Symons
says she thrives on the challenges
each project presents. "It's so important to understand the inner workings of
each client's practice so that the design is effective for their unique needs," she says. "I'm
never bored with all the variety." For proof, look
no further than her recent projects, including
several pharmacy remodels driven by the new
USP 800 guidelines, an expansion for Meritas
Health Occupational Therapy Clinic in North
Kansas City, Mo., and completion of six ORs for
University of Missouri Hospital in Columbia,
Mo. TreanorHL, which she joined four years
ago after working at HTK Architects (Topeka,
Kan.), also supports her commitment to service-oriented work in Peru in partnership with
Centura Health, Global Health Initiatives, and
the Peruvian Union University. Symons also focuses on making an impact at home, serving as
co-chair for the AIA Kansas City Women in Design Committee. "It's been an amazing way to
give women a voice in a male-dominated field,"
she says. -Anne DiNardo

COFFEE OR TEA?
I've never had either one (don't judge me!), but I LOVE
drinking Dr Pepper out of a wine glass. It tastes better
that way.

Y O U R H I D D E N TA L E N T ?
I can crack an egg
flawlessly with one hand.
And I'm VERY proud of it.

FICTION OR
NONFICTION?
I love a great fiction story
("Harry Potter," "Ella
Enchanted"), but lately I'm all about the nonfiction. I
recently finished "Girl, Wash Your Face" (Am I right,
ladies?), "The Alchemist," and "True Refuge" and was
very inspired by all of them.

MORNING PERSON OR NIGHT
OWL?
I used to be an absolute night owl, but I'm just a sleepwhenever-I-can person now. Hello, adulthood.

After working in healthcare architecture, I'd most likely
be in healthcare, having seen the amazing impact it has.
Or I'd be a world-traveling Instagrammer.

COLOR Teal. I was
obsessed with the free
paint chips at Walmart as a kid, and my favorite was
called "Tree Frog Green."

TEA M Kansas City Royals and Chiefs.

YOUR DESIGN AESTHETIC

I F I WA S N ' T A N A R C H I T E C T, I
WOULD BE ...

BAND/MUSICAL
AR T IST Ed Sheeran,
Michael Bublé, Josh
Groban. Music that gives
you the feels.

S PO RT Volleyball (to play), but I love watching any
sports around big groups of happy people.

On my new inflatable standup paddleboard! Few things
feel as good as being in the middle of a calm lake
soaking in the sun.

SYMONS SERVED AS PROJECT MANAGER ON TWO CLINICAL HOUSING

SERVING THE REGION'S MEDICALLY DEPRIVED POPULATION.

Everything these
days seems to
be movable or flexible-casework, dialysis
stations, walls-and I
think this takes growth,
customization, and future
technological advances

into consideration, which I
absolutely appreciate.
Stark white modernism. Clean is the
way to go, but everything
white can come off as
cold.
