I have two decades of nationwide planning experience with consultants, community groups, and most recently as economic development manager for the City of Loveland, Colorado. More than five years as a legislative assistant to U.S. congressmen adds to the depth of my understanding of planning, from funding through community implementation.
Through vision and persistence I have brought success to many development projects. I conceived and managed Loveland’s Foundry redevelopment project, which opened in 2019 and won the Governor's Award for 2020 Best Project with New Building, and I managed Loveland's Gallery Flats redevelopment project, which was awarded the Governor's Award for best 2015 infill project in Colorado.
My responsibilities include research and evaluation of data related to social, housing, economic, population, environmental, and land use trends; developing planning studies and reports; performing plan reviews; preparing permits; researching and analyzing residential and commercial development projects; reviewing and preparing environmental assessments, plans, and documents; and conducting field evaluations and assessments.
Among my specializations are:
- Strategic planning
- Downtown redevelopment
- Brownfield remediation
- Grant writing
- Comprehensive economic development
