Lacy Mangum, CHID, IIDA, LVN, is an Associate and an Interior Designer in Parkhill’s Healthcare Sector. Her experience includes eight years of work in healthcare as a licensed vocational nurse. This background in nursing provides the design team with insight into the operations and thought processes of the healthcare team, including staff, patients, and their families. Being both a designer and a retired nurse brings a greater understanding of both processes and therefore a better healing environment for healthcare workers, patients, families and support staff.

“It is a selfish investment to work in the community and help in building community. Every time I have volunteered, I have come away from it feeling energetic and ready for the next need. It is a way to re-center and find meaning in the routine of life.”
