Professional Experience

I am a licensed architect with more than more than 28 years of professional experience and professional continuing education.  Knowledge of building design and construction is essential for finding solutions to complicated building problems, such as water damage and poor air quality.  With a Masters Degree in architecture along with a Bachelor’s degree in architectural studies with High Honors, my broad knowledge makes a difference in a world where there is no regulation for mold professionals.  A world where ‘professionals’ are defined by the hours of courses they have taken instead of years of quality experience.

My past responsibilities include 5 years as Midwest Regional Director and Senior Technical Director for the wood industry in North America. Take advantage of my technical resources regarding complex building topics, previously only available to professionals through conferences and group professional programs for your individual project.
