Principal/Design, Page,
Houston
follow her love for
travel and experiencing different
cultures, Albert earned a bachelor's
degree in anthropology. While looking for a job after graduation, a friend suggested
she pursue her interest in art by studying architecture. She subsequently took a few design
classes at Drexel University and Harvard Summer School and fell in love with the profession.
After graduating from SCI-ARC, an independent
architecture school in Santa Monica, Calif., she
spent 10 years at Page designing "jewel buildings" for the hospitality, commercial, and academic sectors, before participating in project
interviews for two greenfield projects at Houston Methodist and Texas Children's hospitals.
It was while working on the Houston Methodist
campus that Albert, who was named principal
four years ago, says she knew she could make
a difference by bringing her skills in other sectors to healthcare. "It also allowed me to engage
my training in anthropology to provide spaces
that accommodate different cultural attitudes
toward medicine," she says. Most recently, she's
contributed to projects for University Medical
Center in El Paso, Texas, and a VA mental health
clinic in Houston.-Anne DiNardo

Q U O T E "This too shall pass." This was my
grandmother's favorite quote, and she is one of the
strongest women I've known. (I looked up the origin
and, apparently, it's from medieval Persian Sufi poets
but was also employed in a speech by Abraham Lincoln.
Who knew!)

Both! My daughter wanted a white fluffy
dog as a toddler, so we got a Maltese/
Shih Tzu mix from the SPCA. Then last
year, we went back to get a cute little
flame-point kitten that promptly turned
into a 20-pound ball of long hair.

BEER, WINE, OR LIQUOR?

It made me more aware of people's different
perspectives on personal space. Also, a keen
awareness of religious diversity has been translated
into nondenominational chapels in all my recent
hospitals. The staff really utilize those spaces to find
balance on their stressful days.

Definite morning person. Didn't work well for all-nighters
in school, but I can wake up and get stuff done now.

breakfast most days, too).

We spent two weeks digging and cataloging in a
dry remote area. On the 10th day, I found a part of
a figurine from the Moche era (600-700 AD). It was
like being a kid again, the thrill of discovery; I was so
excited! I've promised my daughter I'll take her on a
dig in a few years.

Beer. Although a nice glass of red wine is a close second.
