In the interest of brevity, I have included a short bullet point bio below:
- Building Official: 13 years at OSHPD, access compliance plan checking, general code compliance
- Licensed Architect: Experience includes hospitals, schools, low income housing, zoos.
- Field Assessor: Accessibility surveys of medical, prison, and general commercial work.
- Owners Representative: In-house accessibility specialist at Sutter Health
I have been working at Sutter Health since March 2014 as their Accessibility Architect, which is essentially the in-house accessibility specialist, as we address and respond to a class-action lawsuit. In my role at Sutter, I manage and coordinate the interpretations of about 15 individual CASps that provide 3rd-Party consulting for us.
I have also been appointed to chair the California Building Standards Commission Healthcare Advisory Committee, as well as a committee member on the Accessibility Advisory committee.
Finally, I would like to thank the founders of CASI, and the past board members for having the courage to start this organization, and for getting CASI to where it is today. Well done!
