We Elevate the Field

"I aim to advance the fields of adaptation and mitigation planning.  I serve as an elected leader of the 4,200-member Sustainable Communities Division of the American Planning Association, where I have also been a contributing author to two APA policy guides and spearheaded an APA National Sustainability & Resilience Series to help all planners get up to speed on these important subjects.  Further, I chaired the recent AICP Task Force that drafted the criteria for a forthcoming mandatory AICP CM credit in sustainability and resilience taking effect in 2022 . I am also a supporting member of the American Society of Adaptation Professionals, as well as certified as a LEED Green Associate."
