Natchitoches, Louisiana

Graduated from Texas A&M University in 2003 with a Bachelors of Environmental Design and from Savannah College of Art and Design with a Master of Arts in Historic Preservation in 2005. While a student at SCAD I came to NCPTT as summer intern and have now been here over 8 years! I completed NCPTT's Study on the Durability of Traditional and Modified Limewash in 2005 and have continued with additional testing. I have spoken on the topic at AIC's Annual Meeting, APT's Annual Meeting, Traditional Building Exhibition and Conference and several times at PTN events. I have also completed research on removing paint from historic bricks and am beginning a study comparing different types of lime for use in mortars. I have spent countless hours renovating my 1930's cottage just outside the historic district in Natchitoches, LA. I am interested in making historic buildings more energy efficient while retaining their historic fabric. Some of these things are inherent in the design and have been lost over time.
