In 2009 Annette worked with USGBC and her fellow 'subject matter experts' (Peter Yost & Rob Moody) in creating the curriculum for the 2-day REGREEN Workshop. The workshop was successfully launched at Greenbuild in Phoenix and will be hitting the market in the first quarter of 2010. Annette will be one of the key faculty members in delivering the 2-day workshop around the country.

Current projects include consulting as a LEED AP on a several homes, working with homeowners on renovations and upgrades for healthier interiors and high-performance buildings.

As a loving activist and literate for environmental stewardship my educational programs target ecologically responsible design and living to all ages through curriculum development, continuing education programs, ASIDs Distinguished Speaker Series and as a USGBC LEED Faculty™ member.

Annette is contributing editor for ‘Green Building Advisor’ and a subject matter expert for REGREEN Residential Remodeling Guidelines created by ASID/USGBC. Her award winning work has been widely published and she was named one of the ‘Top Ten Green Design Gurus’ by Innovative Home magazine in spring of 2008. Two of her projects received the highest honors from the ASID Colorado Chapter for 1st place ‘Residential Sustainable Design’. She was interviewed for American Architectural Review, a PBS Green Design Series, and has lectured on sustainability at national conferences.

Annette co-authored ‘Sustainable Residential Interiors’ published in 2007 by Wiley & Sons. Teaming with co-authors Foster and Hindman, their synergistic passion created a book that takes readers through sustainable principles and practices, an integrated process, and how these apply to residential interior design on multiple levels. The authors’ work is an acknowledged catalyst for change awarded the Joel Polsky Prize by ASIDs Educational Foundation in 2008 recognizing their outstanding academic contributions to the discipline of interior design.

Annette is honored to chair ASIDs National Sustainable Design Council and USGBC Colorado’s Green School Initiative. She was founding board member of the U.S. Green Building Council Colorado Chapter and served as steering committee chair and the chapters’ first president.
