Rebecca’s strength is her ability to distill complex situations into a clear path forward. Her management and communication skills have been honed over 30 years in leadership positions where she has a well-known capacity to collaborate and get things done.
As a recognized trailblazer within the sustainability movement, Rebecca has an innate ability to cut through the clutter and translate sustainability into localized relevance and action. She has worked with organizations to take their very first step and advanced sustainability goals from good to great at places like the 178-acre, Hazelwood Green redevelopment project.
Rebecca is grateful for the wide array of professional opportunities provided at local, state, national and international levels and within non-government, private and government sectors where she has led projects and teams. Through these experiences, she has gained broad perspective and diverse technical knowledge that she leverages to achieve the best possible outcomes.
ReMAKE utilizes first-hand knowledge garnered from 30+ years of project and organizational development experiences. These “in the trenches”, lived experiences have created an ability to instinctively identify the larger systems and influences at play to advance new thinking and collaborative solutions. Each situation is different and ReMAKE purposefully focuses on defining a role that will best match the client needs to achieve more sustainable outcomes for their project.
ReMAKE has worked with an array of professionals across multiple disciplines and taps a network “group” of proven collaborators where specialty gaps may exist or deeper analysis is required to enhance project benefit. This approach allows ReMAKE to work with clients directly, or identify the right expertise and form a group that best meets the situation to create an efficient approach customized for each project. If additional team members are needed, ReMAKE often takes on the responsibility of team coordination for efficient management. Professionals in ReMAKE’s group are available in multiple specialities that may be tapped to take a project from good-to-great. ReMAKE has worked directly with and managed multiple areas of discipline some of which include: strategy, facilitation, planning and design, engineering, construction methods and costing, finance and funding, public engagement, communications, placemaking, events, public art, historic preservation, storytelling, graphics and management systems. All of ReMAKE collaborators are grounded in a commitment to integrating sustainability principles, including the related areas of resiliency and regenerative methods into projects.
“I had the pleasure of working with Rebecca on a number of initiatives and was consistently impressed with her leadership, no-nonsense attitude and communication to cut through noise and get to the point. She built a strong culture of professional yet personal relationships with everyone around, that showed through in all her interactions.”DHRUV GAMI
