Nancy Keenan AIA, LEED® AP


Adapting to change, embracing challenge, and identifying solutions and opportunities is Nancy Keenan's expertise. As President of DAHLIN and the managing principal for the Southern California offices, Nancy believes that much good design is born of the collaboration of great minds. She oversees firm-wide strategy in the areas of operations and finance, leadership and growth, design and documentation, and business development. Nancy is mentoring the next generation of leaders for DAHLIN as we transition to an employee-owned enterprise.

Grounded with an architectural career shaped in the fast-paced builder environment of Southern California, Nancy has seen many master plans, homes and clubhouses built over the years. She is interested in following through on every facet of design—from the livability of a community plan to the design detail of its buildings. Her leadership and quality control ensure successful project execution, innovation and integrity.

Her experience and travels have also taught her and her design teams to develop strategies to craft the story of the place in any appropriate style—contemporary to historic, with design inspiration mindful of the culture and fabric of a place, whether it is in the U.S., China or around the globe.
