Suzanne has a B.S, degree in Environmental Engineering from California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo (CalPoly-SLO). I am a licensed Professional Engineer (Mechanical) in Oregon and Washington. For 20 years I worked as a consultant providing HVAC design for commercial, institutional and industrial applications. I have been a member of ASHRAE for 30 years. From 2009-2012 I was a faculty member for the Northwest Energy Education Institute located on the Lane Community College in Eugene, Oregon. Courses taught included Commercial HVAC, Energy Management for Commercial Facilities, Alternative Energy Systems. I also conducted full day seminars on HVAC for students in the Energy Management Certification program held on the University of Oregon campus, and as part of the NWEEi. Currently I work for CH2MHill. My job title is Energy Modeling Lead. I work with a group of energy modelers providing energy modeling services for design support and LEED Analysis.
I enjoy running, gardening, and spending time with my two college age daughters.
