Early in her career, Emily Ebersol witnessed architecture’s ability to support the healing journey. This inspired her unwavering belief that everyone deserves access to beautiful and restorative environments and steered her towards health-centered design.
At MASS Design Group, Emily has supported the Boston design team as a Designer since 2022. She contributes to the design and community engagement efforts of several projects within MASS’s healthcare portfolio, including the North Shore Community Health at El Centro, a Federally Qualified Health Center supporting medically underserved communities in Salem, Massachusetts.
Before taking on her current role, Emily contributed to the research and initiatives of MASS’s Public Memory and Memorials Lab as a 2021 Space and Society Fellow. Her involvement with the lab brought her close to gun violence survivors whose stories she helped honor and amplify through the Gun Violence Memorial Project.
Emily graduated with a Master of Architecture from the University of Michigan’s Taubman College where she explored the spatial implications of reproductive healthcare access for pregnant people in America, culminating in her thesis, “The Sequel of Jane: Hidden Institutions and Coded Insurgence.” She holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Pittsburgh.
