A sustainability consultant with thirteen years' experience in the field of
sustainable design and construction, I am adept at leading project teams
through the sustainability implementation process. With a holistic and
pragmatic approach, my focus is bringing all team members to the table to
collaboratively develop project-specific sustainability programs and
strategies, no matter how large or complicated the project.

Currently serving on the Board of Directors for the USGBC National Capitol
Region Chapter, she has over twelve years’ experience in the fields of
sustainable design and architecture and presents both nationally and
internationally on sustainability expertise and strategies.

I act as a resource for sustainable design and LEED implementation and am
experienced in guiding developers, architects, planners and government
through the sustainable design and implementation process, she advises
project teams on sustainable design and implementation strategies and guides
project teams through the strategic environmental impact planning process.
Currently, she is managing numerous sustainable design, sustainability
planning & implementation and LEED projects world-wide, including new and
renovation mixed-use, residential, military, educational, industrial, and
medical program facilities.

With experience with multiple LEED rating systems, including NC, CS and
EB:O&M, as well as campus, group, international and secure applications, I
have a broad knowledge of the various LEED methodologies and have been a
founding member of the LEED User Group: Industrial Facilities (LUGIF) since
2012. In the UK, I also provided sustainable design advice and BREEAM (the
UK-equivalent and predecessor of LEED) assessment services to project teams,
managing a variety of BREEAM, EcoHomes and NEAT Assessments.

A particular area of interest is daylight analysis to quantify daylight
factors and the impacts of design revisions upon daylight performance, as
well as provide qualitative evaluations at the urban scale to determine the
impacts of overshadowing within proposed developments.
