I bring more than 10 years of experience in the engineering and construction fields with expertise in healthcare and commercial buildings. My responsibilities include the design of electrical distribution, power, lighting, telecommunications, and fire alarm systems, and coordination with architects and other disciplines.
Electrical engineering even spills into my volunteer work. I have done a load analysis for a school for children of migrant workers in Ensenada, Mexico, and recommended a phased approach to building a power generation system.
I ensure our work is tailored to each client’s needs, avoiding cookie cutter designs.
My energy efficiency work for Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto, California, was covered by EC&M in Children’s Hospital Expansion Project on Stanford Campus Goes Green. For this $1.2 billion expansion – adding 521,000 square feet of floor space and more than 3.5 acres of healing gardens and green space – we used a low-velocity displacement air distribution system for patient rooms and other spaces, requiring lower horsepower fans and lowering cooling production.
