    My main goal as a planner is to create successful places for human interaction through community engagement, professional design, and meaningful plans. My interests include urban design and planning, complete streets and walkability planning and advocacy, transportation planning, streetscape design, land use planning, economic development, and facilities planning.

    My professional planning experience includes working for Sandia National Laboratories, the University of New Mexico, Sites Southwest, and the North Front Range Metropolitan Planning Organization (NFRMPO) in Fort Collins. Over my career, I have been instrumental in completing the long range transportation planning, transportation and urban design project programming and funding, walkability advocacy, regional bicycle planning, and immediate and long term strategic site planning. I have been successful in helping to complete over a dozen plans including transportation plans, corridor plans, downtown master plans, comprehensive plans, specific area plans, design studies, site-scale design, and affordable housing plans. My contribution to these documents included research, data analysis, writing, editing, public meetings and charrettes, and graphic production.


    Currently at Sandia National Laboratories, I aid in managing the existing space portfolio and acquiring new space when the need arises. I also work on long term strategic space planning, as well as executing immediate and short-term space needs, and ensuring environmental compliance for all leased and permitted space operated and managed by Sandia.
