Mandy is a Denverite residing in New England. She has a lengthy knowledge of products and ingredients; thus, a self-proclaimed product label reading snob! She has been in the A&D industry for almost two decades in various sectors and roles. She is the Materials Specialst / Librarian for Elkus Manfredi Architects in Boston. Her approach to design: quality of life in spaces is not simply the aesthetic and function of the space – it’s the quality of mindfulness taken on those specifications that create the aesthetic and functions resulting in healthier built environments. For Mandy, being a materials guru means always learning and researching about the materials that produce a product. She revels in raising her material health cheerleading pom-poms whenever given the opportunity to educate and increase the members of the sustainable design pusher’s tribe!
