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. Rebecca’s sustainability journey is not new, it is a deeply seated ethos.  She grew up as a fifth generation Adirondack native, where self-reliance and resource efficiency was a way of “North Country” life. Rebecca was shaped at an early age by the inherent value of natural systems and local culture.

Rebecca is grateful for the wide array of professional opportunities within non-government, private and government sectors where she has led projects and teams at local, state, national and international scales. Through these experiences, she has gained broad perspective and diverse technical knowledge that she leverages to achieve the best possible outcomes.

ROLES

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(s) that will best match the client needs to achieve more sustainable outcomes for their project.

TEAM

ReMAKE works with clients directly as an independent contractor or will form and manage a project team to best meet the client’s needs. When larger teams are needed, Rebecca taps her network “group” of proven collaborators to enhance project benefit. A direct working knowledge of multiple disciplines facilitates Rebecca’s ability to serve as an effective team player for technical inputs or take on leadership and project management roles within the realms of organizational, community, economic and real estate development. No matter the role, all her work is grounded in sustainable development practices that integrate environmental responsibility and social equity.
