"I have worked and taught in interior design for over 20 years and have remained passionate about both.  My main area of interest is sustainability.  I developed the first sustainable living course in the TBR system, and have conducted numerous sustainability workshops for Habitat for Humanity and other community organizations, as well as presented research on sustainable housing at professional conferences."  - Sue Ballard de Ruiz
