I have been an engineer since 1983 and am licensed in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. At Mazzetti, I provide senior leadership through mentorship to younger staff, ensure team direction, and set the technical direction of MEPT engineering on client projects. I provide active involvement, creative solutions, and an understanding of what the other disciplines are trying to accomplish.
Much of my work has involved industry-shifting innovation. For Seattle University Library, my team made a LEED Gold addition of an integrated displacement ventilation with an existing overhead supply air system in a continuous space. For Peace Island Medical Center, our Living Building Challenge project integrated a ground source heat pump system with displacement ventilation, chilled beams, and natural ventilation.
Forty years since that drafting class, I still enjoy engineering every day. I’m motivated daily to solve problems, and to turn a blank page first into a design and then into an operating system.
In the past, I provided mechanical engineering design for a US Navy building at a NATO Air Base in Sicily, Italy. One of my five trips to the project site was to solve an equipment selection conflict.
