Boomer Joins HDR as Seattle Managing Principal

SEATTLE, WA — Marnie Boomer joins HDR as Managing Principal of the Seattle architecture studio. Most recently serving as Executive Director of Operational Excellence for Providence St. Joseph Health and Services Real Estate Strategy Operations, Boomer succeeds Duncan Griffin, who was promoted to serve as HDR’s Director of Sustainability for Health Architecture.

With a health care operations background and architecture firm leadership experience, Boomer will champion collaboration among a multidisciplinary team of architects, planners, interior designers, and landscape architects to deliver places and spaces in Seattle and beyond in the Pacific Northwest.

With 33 years of experience in health care architecture, Boomer has been responsible for implementing system-wide best practices for hospitals, clinics, specialized care environments, and strategic projects. Previous leadership roles include serving as Regional Director, Facility Manager, Lead Project Manager, Architect, and Medical Planner.

“Bringing a wealth of industry background and leadership experience, Marnie’s passion for delivering healing environments and compassionate leadership style will make a meaningful impact on the growth of HDR’s architecture practice in Washington and across the firm,” said David Skinner, Northwest Region Operations Director at HDR.

Boomer earned her bachelor’s degree in environmental design from Texas A&M University and Master of Architecture from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. An active member of the health care design community, Boomer served as State President of the Washington State Society of Healthcare Engineering.
