As Director of BCSE's Sustainable Design Program I seek to engage students, staff, and faculty in collaborative and innovative pursuits that treat the campus as a living, learning laboratory for sustainable design. I also serve as a key facilitator and advocate for sustainable practices, sustainability education, and ecologically sound campus planning at Bucknell.
My academic background includes a Master of Landscape Architecture from the University of Georgia and a Bachelor of Science in chemistry from Louisiana State University. Through the course of my studies and professional life, I have cultivated a passion for blending art, science, and design in the pursuit of creative solutions to sustainability challenges.
Since spring of 2000 I have taught several courses as an adjunct professor in Bucknell's Environmental Studies Program including ENST 230, Introduction to Ecological Design and a foundation seminar, Exploring the American Landscape. Prior to joining Bucknell, I held professional positions as a research specialist in environmental biology for the Boyce Thompson Institute of Plant Research at Cornell University and as a Geographic Information Systems analyst for the non-profit environmental justice organization Movementech.
