I am enthusiastic and committed to my career as a GREEN® Realtor and to educating homeowners in Northeast Ohio about the benefits of buying or selling a home with known sustainable, energy efficient and healthy features.
Working with environmentally friendly homes and overall sustainability is more than just a job to me, it is a way of life. In 2002, I purchased a home and was introduced to my first green contractor. That began an all-consuming interest in home renovation, green construction, energy efficiency and healthy homes.
I have been inspired by some of the most talented, enthusiastic green business owners I could hope to meet. In turn, I have been given opportunities to inspire other homeowners by bringing extensive media attention to my own environmentally friendly home renovations.
In 2004 I served as a Project Manager for Cleveland Magazine's Ecovation Home Project
In 2005, I was recognized by the City of Lakewood with the Go Green Award and an official Proclamation honoring my work in residential green renovation. and for managing an ongoing environmentally friendly rental business.
And in 2006, my projects earned a first place award from the Entrepreneurs for Sustainability as a "Champion of Sustainability."
