Bio

I'm excited about preservation as a tool for making communities more equitable, affordable, and sustainable. Over the past 10+ years, I've worked for nonprofits, consulting firms, and cities to advance innovative surveys and plans at the local and national levels, leverage data in new ways, and support local efforts to celebrate heritage and maintain affordability. I have extensive experience in both legacy cities and strong-market cities.​

In Austin, I'm helping to lead the Historic Preservation Office's work around more inclusive outreach to historically underrepresented communities, strong educational materials (print and online), collaborative partnerships, and full utilization of GIS.
