Linda K. Ramey, Ph.D.
As a consultant and educator, I am presently involved with Green Building and Sustainability Initiatives and founding the Miami Valley No Child Left Inside Coalition.

Much of my role with Thumbprint Endeavors is with the educational and behavioral change aspects. I focus on matching clients’ day-to-day actions with their new resource-conserving Green facility.

I have worked in Environmental Science Education for over 30 years and loved the natural world for over 50. I have a two Masters degrees – one in science education (College of Mt. St. Joseph) and one in environmental ecology (Wright State University).

Leaving Ohio in 1987, I headed for the beautiful plains of Kansas, working on Konza Prairie and a major NSF Science and Mathematics project.

I also worked at Chicago Botanic Garden on a Community Outreach Gardening Project to enhance science education with in the Chicago City Schools.

After Kansas and Chicago, I spent a year at the University of South Carolina as a visiting professor teaching science and mathematics methods courses and working with Sandhill Environmental Research Center.

In 1995, I joined the faculty in the Biological Sciences Department at WSU, in what is a dual appointment, which meant I developed and taught courses in both the biology and teacher education department. While at WSU, I have filled several roles such as Director of the Office of Professional Field Experiences, Coordinator of the Middle Childhood Teacher Preparation Program and Environmental Science Educator.

In addition, I have had involvement with several grant funded projects as well as numerous publications and presentations in the areas of enhanced learning and effective teaching methodologies in environmental science, informal education (science centers/museums), gender issues in science learning and science teaching self-efficacy.

Providing Smart, Sustainable Building Solutions for Greening Your Environment and Your Life

At Thumbprint Endeavors LLC, we are committed to partnering with our clients to promote healthy and sustainable design practices in the workplace, our homes and in our everyday living.

Our approach is comprehensive. The Thumbprint Endeavors team provides a cohesive, coordinated step-by-step plan for Greening your Project. We take a broad perspective of sustainable design which enables us to effectively enter a project at any phase in the building cycle: Preplanning; Planning/ Design/ Development; Construction; Existing Building Renovation; or work with clients/staff to Green their existing operations, thereby providing efficient, triple bottom line savings.

We view the entire picture - bringing together all the data, information, and players to provide a seamless synergy of the parts to create a plan which is both Green and responsive to the people who work, learn, play and live in that facility.

Facilitate: As an example, we employ a highly collaborative approach when designing a Thumbprint Endeavors Green Plan for a facility by involving teachers, caregivers, staff or homeowners. Our process allows them to voice needs and concerns. Thumbprint Endeavors associates gather focus group data to gain a comprehensive understanding of the existing circumstances, constraints and opportunities for Green solutions. We then translate that information into usable data to inform designers, builders or facility occupants. Everyone benefits using this coordinated, big picture approach -- including the environment.

The final phase of your Thumbprint Endeavors Green Plan outlines specific actions to conserve energy and resources as well as allowing stakeholders to buy-in to the operational and behavioral changes that need to be implemented.
Evaluate: We offer on-site reviews of your existing practices, then we tailor your Thumbprint Endeavors Green Plan to your facility and your needs using an integrated approach.

At Thumbprint Endeavors, we are committed to educating, facilitating and partnering with our Clients. Our overall goal is to promote healthy and sustainable Green practices in homes, schools, the workplace and in our everyday living.

When Thumbprint Endeavors LLC partners with you to Green your space, we listen and formulate a plan that conserves resources and saves money. Our objective is to educate our clients as we co-develop and implement their Thumbprint Endeavors Green Plan.
