“It was a fantastic experience [as a LEED Reviewer]. It was really cool to go from the consultant side to the reviewer side. It was just amazing to see all the projects that come in and the different types of projects. I reviewed projects from all over the world, Europe, the Middle East, South America, of course all over the US, Canada and Mexico as well. And then just to sort of learn after having done the documentation for so many years, being on the other side and learning kind of specifically what to look for in the documentation, like getting that training of exactly what some of these key things are that they look for right off the bat.”
