Marcella Cassanelli

director - client solutions


With a management consulting and marketing background, Marcella turned her focus to business development for healthcare planning and design in 2006, fueling a passion for the business and delivery of healthcare.

She joined NK Architects in 2010 to serve our New Jersey healthcare clients and develop strategic plans to address the needs of each of our market sectors. Today, as Director – Client Solutions, Marcella is leveraging NK’s position and experience as a regional leader in healthcare architecture to expand our presence in several new markets and champions our firm’s commitment to excellent service and responsiveness. She works with hospital planning, operational and clinical staff, as well as their administrators, to design environments in which they can provide services more efficiently and improve the patient experience.

Charity is important to both Marcella and her teenage daughter Ginamarie, who both volunteer regularly for numerous NJ non-profits. Their favorite organizations include The Seeing Eye, for whom they are raising a German Shepherd puppy in training to be a guide dog for a blind person. Marcella also serves as a member of the Cardiovascular Philanthropy Council for the Foundation for Morristown Medical Center.
