Marsha Esponda Bernard AIA

Associate Principal / Senior Project Manager


Marsha Bernard-Esponda is a creative problem solver. A seasoned architect, she firmly believes in listening to all parties involved with a project and enjoys working in collaboration with them to achieve the best results.

“A good collaborative effort with multiple players is what makes me want to come to work every day,” Marsha says. “I consider the diversity of folks I meet while working on healthcare projects – from owner teams, agencies, consultants, contractor and internally – to be one of my job perks.”

Marsha’s assignments as project manager and project architect provide her the opportunity to take key roles in all phases on a variety of architectural projects. Her responsibilities include programming, design, code compliance, city processing, cost estimating, materials selection, contract document preparation, and contract administration.

“As senior project manager, I have led and completed multiple complex healthcare facility projects,” Marsha says. “I enjoy the complexities and challenges of working on healthcare projects and am very good at leading large teams, as well as managing client relationships. The quality of my work and follow-through with clients continues to bring them back.”

She mainly concentrates on healthcare projects for PageSoutherlandPage. Among her favorites is Lakeway Regional Medical Center in Lakeway, Texas. She led the design team for that 274,000-square-foot greenfield facility that serves as the primary acute care hospital for that rapidly growing community.

Targeted for LEED Silver certification, Lakeway Regional Medical Center is located within a new medical and mixed-use development set amid the rugged beauty of the Texas Hill Country.
