In addition to her work as an engineer, she has authored design guides and serves on the New York City code committee as an advocate for the wider adoption of mass timber.

Timberlab recently expanded operations with the opening of an East Coast fabrication facility in Greenville, SC. The strategic move aims to serve the growing mass timber sector east of the Mississippi River, enhancing the supply chain, reducing the cost of mass timber, and making the materials more accessible.
