GCCDS welcomed two new employees in February. Joining us are intern architect Laura Shagalov and planner Mai Dang.
Laura comes to us from Minneapolis, MN, where she researched and evaluated home energy consumption. Prior to her work in the Midwest, Laura worked for an architectural firm in Berkeley, CA, specializing in accessible residential design. Her energy efficiency and accessibility expertise are a great addition to our team. Welcome Laura!
Mai recently graduated from the Master of City Planning program at MIT. During her graduate studies, Mai worked closely with a non-profit affordable housing development organization in Boston, MA. Joining the GCCDS has brought Mai back to the Gulf Coast, where she has 3 years of community organizing and development experience post-Katrina. We are excited to have her on board. Welcome Mai!
