Mary Haizlip, AIA

Principal in Charge of Management

Mary wears many hats at Haizlip Studio and is one of its most valuable assets. She is managing business partner for the Memphis and Asheville offices, is a senior project architect, exhibit director, and talented interior designer. Mary stays busy.

Graduating Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Engineering Technology from The University of Memphis, Mary has parlayed her interests and considerable talents in math, science, and design into an expertise for management and art direction of complex architecture and exhibit design projects. She specializes in defining the thin line and difficult intersection between architecture and exhibits, where fine grained technical coordination and deft on-site decisions are the difference between success, and something else.

Mary devotes her off time to volunteering as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for abused and neglected children and serving on their Board of Directors, as a Volunteer Ambassador for the Memphis Child Advocacy Center, as 2015 President of the AIA Memphis Board of Directors, and as a member of the Marx-Bensdorf women’s competitive cycling team.
