Marcella Cassanelli


Marcella joined NK Architects in 2010 to build upon our legacy Metropolitan New York healthcare client relationships and leverage NK’s position and experience as a regional leader in healthcare planning and design.  She has been instrumental in helping NK expand our presence into several new markets in the region, with new institutional clients. 

Today, as Associate Principal, Marcella continues to lead our business development efforts and is a champion of our firm’s commitment to excellent service and responsiveness.  In addition to supporting the growth of our healthcare practice, she assists each of our market sectors in strategic planning, marketing, and business development.

She participates in many industry associations but is most active in her committee and chair roles that support educational healthcare programs (HLNDV) and mentorship for women in the A/E/C industry (PWC Philadelphia).

Marcella is an avid golfer and the proud mother of Ginamarie, an undergraduate student at Rutgers, and a young French bulldog named Hugo.
