I joined USGBC in 2002 and over the years I have been involved in various initiatives including the development and promotion of the LEED Green Building Rating System, organizational development working with international groups and Green Building Councils interested in adopting LEED, and the organization and planning of the Annual Greenbuild International Summit. In April 2010, I moved to GBCI as International Programs Manager working on several international initiatives around project certification and professional accreditation. In June 2012, I moved to the Strategic Alliances team, I manage the USGBC Faculty program and the instructor led curriculum program working to grow both programs domestically and internationally to support the education needs of green building professionals. Prior to USGBC I worked at the National Parks Conservation Association as a Marketing Assistant and the Re-Elect America bus tour as staff photographer and administrative assistant. I earned my BA in Communications, with a Minor in Photograph, from Mount Vernon College at George Washington University.
