After starting my company offering Title 24 energy compliance reporting, I discovered the Passive House Standard and became a Certified Passive House Consultant.
I am especially interested in converting our existing building stock into ultra-energy efficient and comfortable buildings using the Passive House EnerPHit step-by-step methodology for retrofits.
I am using my own 1948 Ranch house to prepare an EnerPHit Retrofit plan and execute the first retrofit step to get pre-certified.
My goal is to learn from the experience and to promote EnerPHit step-by-step as a superior method for energy efficient retrofits to the industry, including owners, utilities, municipalities, and everybody who is interested in energy efficient building renovation.
I graduated with a master’s degree in Business and Information Technology from University of Stuttgart, Germany and came to the U.S. in 1998 to join one of the biggest U.S. consulting firms at the time.
The Palos Verdes Peninsula just South of Los Angeles is where I enjoy life with my husband and two pugs.
It is a pleasure to serve as the treasurer on the Passive House California Board of Directors to help make a difference.
