A program manager in Buildings and on our Retail team, Gianna manages our AutoNation account while also working towards generating new retail and workplace project opportunities in Texas. Plus, she’s actively involved in improving opportunities for minorities and women in the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry. She also champions architecture licensure and has mentored many candidates through the exam and licensure process.
Before joining Stantec, Gianna led a team that developed an entertainment project in an underperforming office building in downtown Los Angeles—an office building that just happened to be, at the time, the tallest building west of the Mississippi River. The scope included developing the ticketing, queuing, elevator sequencing, event space, and an exterior slide.
Gianna has a wide range of interests, and—though she only pretends to enjoy sports—she’ll engage in a lively football team debate if it provides an opportunity to annoy any Saints, Patriots, Ole Miss, Alabama, LSU, or Texas A&M fans in the room. Her philosophy about life is to embrace change and welcome continual learning and to ultimately leave this world better than she found it.
