She also brings an understanding of the historic preservation regulatory process from her past work in the New Jersey Historic Preservation Office, as well as over a decade of non-profit experience with the Cleveland Restoration Society where she ran both the Neighborhood Historic Preservation and Sacred Landmarks programs.
