Aminah is an active member of our Emerging Professionals Committee and the design community! Read her profile below:

Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area, I've been immersed in sustainability issues for most of my life. I enjoy my volunteer work with the USGBC Emerging Professionals Committee, where I have been the Service Chair since organizing the EPMA’s annual Charles River Clean Up in March. This is an inspiring platform through which I hope to create a meaningful impact in my community.

Since graduating from Mount Holyoke College in 2014, with my degree in Environmental Studies and Architecture, I've worked in Boston with the Landscape Architecture team at Brown, Richardson & Rowe, Inc. I have some international exposure to current projects in sustainable design and restoration and am especially interested in how holistic design can facilitate healthy communities, equitable access, connection to local culture, and an understanding of place and climate.

I am currently working to connect different organizations, including USGBC, International Living Future Institute and the BSA Women in Design Committee to further a conversation on equity, inclusion and intersectionality in design.
