Work with Me, Your Green Home Coach

There’s 2 perspectives of a home - working on it and living in it.

Both matter for the people living there – to have safer, healthier, more comfortable lives in that home. That means peace of mind.

Peace of mind for knowing your home does all it can for the people living in your home – whether you built it, own it or live in it.

Working with me on the homes you work on or live in (or both) will help you know…

  • what makes these homes better – the green and sustainable materials, products and processes that combine to make a home safer, healthier and more comfortable
  • how to talk about these homes to people who want to live safer, healthier, more comfortable lives
  • why you work on or live in better homes

From simple swaps to green and sustainable actions and products or a green certified home, they all lead to a better home. Putting these actions in place can help reap the rewards of saved money, time and effort to finance, operate and maintain homes and buildings.

My designations demonstrate the knowledge I’ve gained – NAHB Master Certified Green Professional, LEED AP and Wellness Within Your Wall certified professional.

Together, we create solutions that work for you. I look forward to putting my knowledge and experience to work for the homes you are working on or living in.

My Programs

I am excited to offer programs that contain a collection of my knowledge and expertise to help you learn more about green building and living.

My current programs include a downloadable audio course, live video workshop, and 1:1 program.

Coming Soon: The Everyday Green Home Membership Program!

Speak Up!

Want to speak up? Share your ideas and have conversations? Listen to people and find common ground? The more common ground we find, the more we can take action on solutions.

I have been working with green certified homes and projects for 15+ years, and am an author and podcaster. I would love to bring one of these topics to your audience – either virtually or in-person. Choose one of the following, or we can create one together.

1:1 Consulting

I care about the home practices and products used and how those choices affect our families, communities, and world. I love sharing what makes a green home green, why it matters, and how to accomplish it. 

I can teach you how to make changes in your home building, remodeling, or design process to improve the lives of your clients.

If one of my programs doesn’t fit your needs, 1 on 1 consulting is a chance for us to work together to create a custom experience.
