Old Window Workshop
link to bio
My work focuses on creating jobs especially for low-income women through restoring wooden windows and preventing landfill waste of good heartwood, handblown glass and hardware. We work to eliminate the unnecessary replacement of windows for negligible energy savings.
I joined the Board in 2014 and attended the Raleigh NC DECON 16 conference. At two annual board meetings I witnessed the degree of mission-driven sharing and support from colleagues.
Having had the opportunity to work with this group of passionate professionals who encompass the whole continuum of the industry, I see the potential for growing the impact of Reuse to significantly improve the economic and environmental future of cities.
My background in increasing opportunity for women in the trades offers me models that I would like to share with Reuse entrepreneurs across the country.
