The ReUse People reduces the solid waste stream and changes the way the built environment is renewed by salvaging building materials and distributing them for reuse.
Kathy became interested in green building while working in an energy conservation program for the City of Austin. Recently retired after 21 years with the city, primarily in IT, she turned her attention to sustainability, green building and deconstruction, which led to several conversations with TRP’s Texas regional manager and the opportunity to do something meaningful and challenging to benefit her city. Kathy’s love of nature, the outdoors and animals are also primary drivers. Nine years working as a commercial real estate appraiser provides additional valuable experience.
