has been concerned about the environment for as long as she can remember. The rampant suburban sprawl she witnessed in her hometown as a child led her to study architecture, and later historic preservation, as a way to lessen the impact of the built environment on the natural world. She earned her degree in Architecture at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and spent an exchange year at the Eidgenï¿½ssische Technische Hochschule in Zï¿½rich. She currently works for John G. Waite Associates, a nationally recognized preservation architecture firm, where she continues to strive towards a holistic approach to sustainability through the compatibilities of historic preservation, green design and urban planning. She is thrilled to join the team at GreenHomeNYC to push these goals even further. In the summer Cory can be found leading free kayak tours along the Hudson River with the Downtown Boathouse, introducing New Yorkers to a part of their local environment.
