Sustainability Strategist
Washington, DC

A problem-solver and designer by nature, I bring nearly 20 years’ experience in sustainability strategy, partnership development, and organizational leadership. I have worn many hats, through a successful history in start-up nonprofits, and learned the value of flexibility, adaptation, collaboration, and building a strong team. Early on, I developed a specialty in the field of urban and social ecology - an advancing discipline that recognizes the built environment and the humans who occupy it as integral ecosystem components. As a strategic sustainability expert, I bring a deep understanding of the pieces needed to create healthy and sustainable buildings, organizations, and communities and how that can scale to a global level.
