There are architects working in professional and volunteer roles to help rebuild and improve resilience for our communities. My goal is to organize, empower, and support communities to come together and find new opportunities that make them more self-sufficient and resilient.
I invite you to follow my resilience journey through the “daily posts archive” listed on the right side.
After returning from the 2010 Haiti post earthquake response work, I completed an SAP (Safety Assessment Program) Trainer course via the CA Emergency Management ATC-20 and ATC-45 program and became the WI AIA State Disaster Assistance Coordinator.
In September 2015 I joined forces with Namaste Nepal on a rebuilding program to help Nepali families recover from the April and May 2015 earthquakes.
Today, I work for the University of Wisconsin Madison, serve as a CalOES SAP Trainer for the AIA Disaster Assistance Committee, and continue to act as the AIA WI Co-State Disaster Assistance Coordinator.
We invite you to join the conversation.
