Ymani Mackey

Dyer Brown has announced its recent addition of Ymani Mackey, who firm leaders say has become an essential team member in a short time.

Mackey joins Dyer Brown in the role of Interior Designer with nearly a decade of valuable professional experience under her belt, including a previous role of in-house designer and project manager for Grady Health System, a network of hospitals and treatment centers serving the Atlanta region that benefited from Mackey’s support in reprogramming and realignment following closures of other area healthcare providers. Prior to that, she designed a range of environments as project manager for another major design firm, including warehouses for major retailers including Home Depot and co-work environments for owner-operators like Serendipity Labs.

A native of the nearby city of Roswell, Ga., Mackey earned a BFA in interior design from the Art Institute of Atlanta. For Dyer Brown, Mackey is currently redesigning and reprogramming for higher education institutions around Atlanta and, in the Northeast, she is helping design and improve a number of all-inclusive eldercare centers. According to Mitchell, Mackey will soon take on challenges in an emerging specialty for Dyer Brown, designing behavioral healthcare environments for teens and adults struggling with addiction and mental health crises.

Mackey is also a mother to two young children who likes to spend time hiking and biking as a family and attending the theater with her husband, especially musicals. She also practices scuba diving, including at a quarry near Atlanta.
