Director of LEED Support

U.S. Green Building Council


As Director of LEED Support, I strive to coordinate excellent customer service for project teams throughout the certification process.  Prior to joining GBCI, I was a sustainable development consultant with Paladino & Company, managing numerous LEED-CS, LEED-CI, and LEED-ND projects through certification - including the first Stage 1 Platinum.  I have also completed hundreds of LEED Reviews, managed a LEED Review team, and trained dozens of Reviewers. With my local Cascadia Chapter, I co-chaired the Seattle LEED Users Group (SLUG) for several years, and was a founding member of CNU's local Chapter as well. I have a Bachelors in Environmental Science, Masters in Landscape Architecture and City & Regional Planning, and an MBA. I am a 3rd Generation Seattleite, a 4th Generation Washingtonian, a minimalist runner, and a mother of two.  I spend my spare time at the Pacific Ocean, where my husband and I have built a 460 sq ft LEED-Platinum cabin to relax and raise our family.
