I recommend Kathy Zarsky without reservation. She is extraordinarily talented and would bring a great deal of value to any team. Kathy excels at creating and managing coalitions of knowledgeable folk from diverse disciplines to focus on creating healthy buildings, systems and communities. I was honored to serve on the board of the local USGBC chapter when Kathy was President in the formative stages of the chapter. Kathy’s selfless, dedicated servant leadership and perseverance resolving tough issues served USGBC and the community well.

Kathy is a pleasure to work with. She is committed to her dreams and brings knowledge, passion and always an extra step to the table. Kathy believes in partnership and is building a network of excellence around her. I can’t wait to see what all she will achieve in the years to come.

I’ve relied heavily on Kathy in my role as Policy Director for Austin Mayor Will Wynn. She’s been a fantastic policy development resource as we’ve advanced green building initiatives in Austin and has been a generous mentor to me personally
