Laura Clemons, founder and CEO and serves as the company’s head project team leader.
Ms. Clemons is a LEED Accredited Professional with a specialty designation in Building Design and Construction and has been working in the sustainable built environment since 2008. She transitioned into disaster recovery after the devastating tornados of April 2011 and has combined her diverse background into being a foremost expert on resiliency.
After studying abroad in England, Italy and Greece, Ms. Clemons received her Master's in Education from the University of Montevallo, Alabama. While teaching on the Cherokee Indian Reservation in North Carolina she received a Fulbright Scholarship to live in Japan.
She has been working with the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) since 2014 on a comprehensive approach to Hurricane Sandy recovery that is designed to protect over 350 acres of Sandy damaged NYCHA property from increasing climate change risks including storm surge, sea level rise and rain inundation. My strategy for stormwater management is that it be achieved through creative land re-engineering to maximize perviousness and drainage while embracing Placemaking.
Currently she is invested in helping flood ravaged communities across Texas and Louisiana rebuild in a safer, more sustainable way.
