My purpose is to advance better corporate and government decision-making through green building investigation, greenhouse gas (GHG) analysis and zero waste audits. The objectives: identify where major risks lie, detail key performance improvement opportunities, and quantify your environmental benefit (MTCO2e, CCF, tons waste) by comparing to baseline practice.
I am a LEED AP of 10 years, a Project Drawdown Fellow (www.drawdown.org), a former United Nations Life Cycle Impact Assessment participant, and the author of Our Historic Moment (www.ourhistoricmoment.com), released in spring 2017.
Work has included dozens of GHG inventories and reduction strategies for forward-thinking food processing, manufacturing, and other service businesses. It also entails sustainable community development technical assistance; renewable energy finance on tribal reservations; and urban greening/gardening/forestry.
As a former co-chair of Tribal P2 and founder of Native Alerts, I am deeply committed to supporting Indian County and Native communities in quality of life for future generations. Teams within which I was honored to hold key roles have delivered over $3 million for Native community development, regional planning, food security, habitat protection, and related tribal and rural issues.
I hold an M.S. in Environmental Engineering from University of California at Berkeley and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Rice University.
