Lauri has always been intrigued and experienced in green architecture, acting as the project manager of a Level 5 Built Green (the highest level). It was the 2nd residence in King County to receive a 5 star rating. Lauri has since moved to Los Angeles in 2008 where she continues to work on high end residential and is enjoying little commercial work as well. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, working out, and attending film and theatre.
