Mandi Taylor Ghersi
Mandi radiates positive energy. Her passion for community-driven work pairs perfectly with Pinnacle’s mission. Mandi views the world of design through a lens of empathy, compassion, social awareness, and environmental responsibility. In response, she practices trauma-informed design, ensuring an individual’s physical and emotional safety is addressed in the built environment. Mandi infuses this design approach into Pinnacle’s affordable housing, permanent supportive housing, and community healthcare projects.
Mandi’s degree in Interior Architecture and background as an office manager for a construction firm make her a well-rounded designer. She’s jumped right in at Pinnacle, providing clients with interior design options that support their goals and the needs of future users.
While not creating a welcoming and inspiring interiors, she’s making a new home with her architect husband in Portland. Mandi enjoys traveling, hiking, and yoga. Originally from Utah, she’s landed in the perfect place to follow her interests.
