What do you do now and what are you planning for the future? I am in charge of all marketing and events for Chatfield Green Roofing. Hopefully more cities start understanding and utilizing the benefits of green roofing and offer more funding and incentives for individuals and businesses to go green, increasing the demand for our product across the country! 

How do you unwind from a busy day? I recently bought my first home. My favorite thing to do lately after a hectic day is to come home and relax. There’s just something about having a place to come home to that’s yours… it’s really comforting.

One word to describe your work environment: Unconventional.

Rules to live by in business: Always be different – find a way to set yourself apart from others in your industry and truly stand out.

What is your dream job? I love what I currently do- the concept of green roofing is something that is still newer in the industry and once people learn a bit more about it, they find it to be an extremely interesting and beneficial concept. I take great pride in working for a company that can not only help others to “go green” but can also educate the public about the importance of creating a sustainable environment as well.
