Meet USGBC: Judith Webb, SVP
What's your name, title at USGBC?
Judith Webb, APR, SVP, Marketing & Strategy
Where are you from?
I’m a Georgia girl – grew up in Atlanta, lived in Chicago for about five years in the 70s, and San Antonio, for about five years in the 80s. Then went home to the ATL in 1987 where I’ve been ever since (except of course when I’m in DC).
How long have you worked at USGBC?
Started consulting with USGBC in 2003 doing media training. I came on staff full time in 2010.
What's your typical day like?
Every day is a new day.
What is your favorite part of working for USGBC?
Getting up every day knowing that I can contribute in a small way to advancing something really important.
What is the most important lesson life has taught you?
That it is always within your power to make something happen.
What is your most memorable professional experience?
There are too many to count:
Supporting Henry Cisneros when he was an unknown mayor of San Antonio and was suddenly being considered as a vice presidential candidate; doing 79 media interviews in the 24 hours after Atlanta was named the host city for the 1996 Olympics; every time I’ve been backstage at the opening plenary of Greenbuild.
