Dawn M Mullen, AIA, LEED AP BD+C


As MAI’s first employee, Dawn has been an integral part of the firm for longer than she is willing to admit. Serving our corporate, educational and healthcare clients, her twenty-five plus years of experience guide her in developing meaningful and practical designs for a variety of projects, directing them from initial concept through final construction closeout. She was also MAI’s first LEED accredited professional and continues to focus on healthy environments with her interest in interiors, creating dramatic and functional spaces that give the users what they need and more.   

Fun Fact

Dawn is a confirmed tennis addict; you’ll find her trying to construct a point on the court just as she constructs her projects- thoughtfully considering all the angles, creating the right shot for the right moment.
