Community Projects:

Lorna's passion for sustainable design is evident in her work. She currently volunteers her free time as an advocate for sustainable design and is leading green efforts within her local community. As Past Chair of the 2009 South Florida Emerging Professionals, she was directly connected with the voice of our local municipalities, students, young professionals, planners, builders, and architects that will lead and teach future generations of the importance of sustainable building.

In 2009, Lorna started teaching environmental 101 classes for kids at The Green Urban Living Center located in Miami Dade North Campus Community College. In 2010, Lorna became chair of Florida Yards & Neighborhoods which main focus is to address the serious problems of pollution, water shortages and disappearing habitats by enlisting Floridians in the battle to save our natural environment. In 2011, she became a board member for the Miami Dade County Overall Extension (EAC) Advisory Board to assist in the process of evaluating EAC programs and help develop future environmental workshops and training opportunities for the Miami Dade county residents. IN 2012, Lorna was certified as a Florida Master Gardener. The Florida Master Gardener Program is a volunteer-driven program that benefits UF/IFAS Extension and the citizens of Florida. The program relies on dedicated volunteers who have an interest in gardening and in giving back to their communities. Lorna volunteers her time and assists the county agents in delivering information to residents on how to design, plant and care for their plants and landscapes in a Florida-Friendly way. Lorna believes the green building movement offers us an unprecedented opportunity to respond to the most important challenges of our time, and she is extremely excited to be part of this challenge.
