“Annette has an amazing spirit and a contagious passion for green building.  I still remember the huge impression she made on me at the first USGBC meeting I attended back when we still were working toward becoming a Chapter.  She continues to inspire me to this day.  I consider her a good friend and an incredible role model. She has had the same impact on so many in Colorado’s green building community.  Every time I think about what our Chapter has accomplished over the years and how much we have influenced the state of green building in Colorado, I think of Annette’s unwavering commitment and personal dedication.  I think it’s safe to say that USGBC Colorado would not be where it is today without Annette’s leadership. Thank you, Annette!” – Tom Hootman, Associate Principal, Senior Sustainability Consultant, Integral Group

“Annette has been a source of light and energy and remarkable leader for our local green community from its inception. Her incredible skills of facilitation, organization, community building, exuberant passion and her resourcefulness have guided and inspired me personally on an ongoing basis and driven the USGBC Colorado Chapter through to its current recognized success.  I am in awe of her and extremely grateful to her for her time and commitment and self that she shared with us all.” – Lauren Yarmuth, Director, Circular Economy, Ideo
