I began in mechanical engineering in 1998. I specialize in sustainability, energy modeling, bulk airflow analysis, climate analysis, and ELCCA reporting that helps inform the “right” mechanical system approaches for projects. I have participated in many project eco-charrettes as a Certified Sustainable Building Advisor, and have established long-lasting relationships with utility energy managers throughout Washington.
Internally, I keep Mazzetti staff up-to-date on innovative projects, what’s new in healthcare, code updates, ASHRAE resources, and upcoming events. I have also developed an in-house standard for researching/pursuing rebates and incentives for each project as it comes into our office. We track the total amount of incentive dollars we have helped owners realize that have also enabled energy-efficient measures to be incorporated based on a ROI analysis funded by rebate/incentive programs.

Some of my notable work includes having served as project manager for the Seattle Fire Station #2 Renovation, one of the first Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) projects in Seattle. I worked closely with the Seattle Department of Planning and Development to inform changes in the code that specifically address VRF mechanical systems.
My publications include, “Can Buildings Be Free of Fossil Fuels by 2030?” in the Daily Journal of Commerce (2007). I have also been included in: “Pacesetters for May 19,”DJC Oregon (2006); “Mechanical engineers hop aboard the green bandwagon” by Julaine Fleetwood, DJC (2006); “How BIM helped a hospital go green” by Todd Bovey,DJC (2008); “Want LEED credits for your lights? Plan early” by Randy Fisher, DJC(2009); “Controls and Exterior Tactics for efficient illumination” by C.C. Sullivan and Adam Sullivan, AIA Continuing Education (2013).
