It has taken me years to be bolder and I am still learning how to be brave, but I was born Green and want to use the knowledge I've collected through years of research, perseverance and hard work to contribute to a greater cause.
I have an unwavering belief that I am here to help make a difference; to be a disruptor of "business as usual" and quiet the naysayers. This is not rhetoric, but conviction. I have never been one to do anything half-way and certainly not one to take the easy path. I don't cut corners or shirk responsibility. In fact, I thrive on digging into the guts of a problem to fully comprehend it, dissect it and devise a plan to resolve it.
Today, there are a host of sustainability requirements that are onerous, complex, even contradictory. As a trained Interior Architect and Materials Analyst, I understand how daunting these new requirements can seem. I created A Greener Space to help clear the confusion so that we can move forward and start making meaningful change.
Ask any of my clients; I am a bulldog when it comes to helping you and your team fully grasp the opportunities afforded to you in a veritable landmine of declarations and certifications.
I make it my business to become your advocate and champion to discover where you are unique and highlight what you are already doing well. Whether you are a design team eager to pursue LEEDv4 Certification for a large commercial project or small startup seeking coveted Living Product Challenge Certification, A Greener Space has the experience and tenacity to take you across the finish line.
Because of my background and global experience with A+D teams and manufacturers alike, I relate to both sides of the sustainability equation. I have advised as many manufacturers on how to vet and reformulate their products as I have consulted A+D teams on how to achieve building certifications. With this, I come armed with equal parts efficiency, accuracy and ingenuity.
Let's not merely meet goals; let's shatter them!
