Holly Golden, Vice President

Attorney, Hillis Clark Martin and Peterson

I joined Environmental Works because it represents a fantastic intersection between my experience as a land use lawyer and my interest in community-oriented design. The built environment plays an enormous role in our daily lives. It’s exciting to be part of an organization that takes such a creative and thoughtful approach to designing vibrant and functional spaces that reflect the needs of the communities they serve.

Ann Marie Borys

Architect/Associate Professor, Department of Architecture, University of Washington

My career has included a mixture of professional practice, teaching, and administration in higher education. I am excited to be part of the Environmental Works Board of Directors because I am inspired by its mission and the dedication of the staff who have devoted their professional careers to serving communities and their needs. The participatory design approach that EWorks uses to partner with clients and communities is an important model for the whole profession today.

Bob Fish

Loan Officer, HomeStreet Bank (retired)

Shaping the physical environment is one of the most basic ways people interact with the world.  Environmental Works provides people who would otherwise lack the tools the capacity to successfully shape their environment in collaboration with other people and in harmony with nature. People who have had this experience realize that they have the ability to successfully approach opportunities and challenges in life as a whole.

I worked as a community planner and non-profit housing developer for 14 years, 11 of those with Environmental Works.  In 1988 I began a career in residential mortgage banking, which I did until 2015. My interests outside of work include human powered outdoor recreation of all kinds.
