I have officially completed the IDP program, and am actively pursuing licensure. Though I have only been a LEED AP since February of this year, my contribution to the LEED documentation efforts in our office has been extensive. From registering new projects to replying to Design Review Comments, I feel comfortable with the LEED Online documentation process. 

As far as my career goals are concerned, I am very much interested in building performance as relates to design. I see the LEED system as the baseline for environmentally conscious design, and am constantly striving to learn how to exceed it. 

In my free time - when I am not studying for the AREs - I play viola in the Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra, work on my latest sewing project, and cook as often as I can.
