Responsible Sourcing Analyst
I am a committed corporate social responsibility and sustainability professional. I drive strategies that align business and environmental stewardship to achieve fiscal, social and environmental benefit. From zero waste to responsible sourcing, my expertise in creating business value through sustainable practice is comprehensive, context-specific and reinforced with the grit of an athlete.
A champion of resilience and efficiency, I am often called upon to troubleshoot problems and find appropriate solutions quickly. My natural curiosity for new information complements my inclination to spearhead new initiatives and to distill complex ideas into articulate and instructive formats for broad audiences. Frequently described as a bridge builder, I draw on experiences working internationally to bring cultural competency to all of my endeavors.
I hold an M.A. in Sustainability, Summa cum laude, from Wake Forest University and a LEED-Green Associate accreditation.
I am motivated by the fact that every carpet tile that I sell helps to break the cycle of the take-make-waste economic model that is robbing future generations of the equal opportunity to live and prosper on a healthy and verdant planet.
My goals, professionally, are to accurately educate end-users, the A+D community and flooring dealers about the benefits of Interface and FLOR carpet tiles to the performance, well being and sustainability of the built environment.
