As a sustainability consultant and architectural designer with an emphasis in holistic sustainable design practices, I advise teams on new building construction in the healthcare, education, commercial, federal, manufacturing, multi-family and hospitality building sectors.

I managed and launched the redesign of the company's website in 2013 and further updates in 2015.
